Smart Food Farming Expo welcomes Light4Food as Exhibitor

Light4Food

Smart Food Farming Expo welcomes Light4Food as Exhibitor. The Smart Food Farming Expo takes place on June 28-29, 2017, at Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.

About Light4Food
Light4Food is an innovative agricultural technology company focused on the design and production of sustainable growing systems for Vertical Farming. The process takes place within enclosed buildings with a controlled environment to increase productivity and reduce the environmental impact. The growing system requires cultivation with optimal climate conditions and precise lighting programs. The lighting is provided by Philips LED Lighting to ensure optimum growth 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

The use of LED lighting on crops indirectly boosts their substance and shelf life. By cultivating indoors, the production is not dependent on weather conditions and other disruptive factors. Therefore, it is possible for them to reach the same crop quality all year round without the use of pesticides.

In addition, the reduction of the use of water and fertilizers and the possibility to recycle heat flows make Light4Food’s cultivation systems energy efficient and contribute even more to the systems’ sustainability. The predictability of the cultivation process and the clean crops are the main advantages of these cultivation systems. Continue reading “Smart Food Farming Expo welcomes Light4Food as Exhibitor”

  • A cooperation with other clusters, which causes acceleration and synergy
  • Access to a large network
  • Support of agro-, high-tech- and business-development-experts

Smart Food Farming Expo welcomes Urban Ponics as exhibitor

Urban Ponics

Smart Food Farming Expo welcomes Urban Ponics as exhibitor. The Smart Food Farming Expo takes place on June 28-29, 2017, at Villa Flora, Venlo, The Netherlands.

About Urban Ponics
Urban Ponics is a pioneer in urban farming and has proven that it is now possible to cultivate crops without soil, substrate or water. In other words: The plants develop their roots systems in the air and feed themselves with a very thin mist to which bioactive fertilizers have been added, made from sea salt and human extracts. It has been proven that the minerals and trace elements from sea salt such as iodine, selenium, strontium, germanium (which cannot be found in crops anymore) are accumulated in the crops and make them healthier again for humans.  The concept of small scale urban farming will develop in the coming years into a new branch of professional horticulture that will provide many families with income and healthy nutrition.
