Freight Farms Raises $17.5M Series B3 to Address Access and Sustainability in the Food System Through Container Farming
This funding will help the hydroponic container farming company expand its customer base and increase reach of its farms to more remote areas and urban centers
Two long-standing farming families have joined forces to realise their ambition to reach Net Zero by using traditional methods supported with cutting-edge technology, including an onsite vertical farm powered by solar panels.
The two Freight Farms at Auburn University are a part of the college's horticulture program. They live in the Transformation Garden, an open-air classroom that is a beautiful spot on campus for all students to enjoy and learn.
CEA is importantly not the answer to all the systemic problems in food production, but it is a powerful method that adds much needed resilience into supply chains, as the climate across the globe changes.
Biosphere 2 is turning to Freight Farms to further novel research on creating a circular economy of food production, its benefits and the role of vertical farming
Participating teams in the Pinduoduo Smart Agriculture Competition will compete to produce lettuce in shipping containers, using technology including LED lighting, crop modeling, and algorithms to control input variables.
Housed in Traditional Cargo Containers, New AI-Powered Shrimpbox Technology Offers Sustainable, Highly Profitable and Globally Scalable Protein Source
Atarraya's "plug and play" shrimp farming technology delivers up to 10X the ROI of traditional poultry or swine farming, creating new opportunities for farmers - even in landlocked, highly populated cities
For the first time in the UK, vertical farming will be trialled in a prison setting as part of a strategy to aid rehabilitation by empowering prisoners and helping them develop new skills to reintegrate back into society.
The facility has produced its first crop of Class 1 strawberries, with the quality being verified by their customer, a large UK supermarket. It is setting out to grow and supply quality British strawberries to the mainstream UK market all year round.
The upcycled shipping containers that house these systems can be placed virtually anywhere in the world - from island nations and urban areas to college campuses and the far reaches of Alaska - and produce food year-round.
A distributed network of farms and farmers means that our technology is able to effect change on a greater scale. In our goal to move farms, not food, we strive to create resiliency in food supply chains and greater food access across the world
Vertical container farming is on the up. Continuing pressure on UK growers to diversify their crops, rewild their land and use greener growing practices means that utilising the economic and environmental benefits of vertical farming is more popular than ever.
Square Roots utilized refurbished upcycled shipping containers that are stacked vertically to reduce the company's impact on the land.
By saving energy, and creating a sustainable ecosystem, CUBE is elaborating a decentralized farming solution that can be set up in any city without relying on imports and logistics for easy access to a traceable food supply.
We're building for a future where modular vertical farming solutions are an accessible means of food production in urban areas. By modular vertical farming solution, we are referring to turnkey grow systems from the size of a shipping container down to a household appliance.

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
