INFARM STARTS OPERATING ONE OF EUROPE'S LARGEST VERTICAL FARMING FACILITIES IN BEDFORD. POTENTIAL TO SERVE 90% OF THE UK POPULATION
This is Infarm's first high-capacity Growing Centre in the UK, the facility measures 10,000 sqm and can feature up to 40 Infarm cloud-connected farming units, each standing 10 metres high. Each unit can grow more than 500,000 plants per year.
