Eden Green Technology, a privately held vertical-farming company out of Fort Worth, Texas, has broken ground on a multi-million dollar greenhouse facility next to its original facility in the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex. This facility is being developed with $12 million from existing investors.

The new facility looks to continue the company’s journey of providing a more sustainable means of feeding people around the world.

Eden Green separates itself from other similar offerings by offering increased scalability compared to other lower-tech vertical farming methods. Another benefit, these facilities run on 99% sunshine and recycle up to 7,500 gallons of water each month. Typically, greenhouses of this nature rely on LED lighting.

In a press release, Eddy Badrina, CEO of the company, notes, "If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's the need for our communities to work together to make smart, sustainable, and resource-efficient decisions in pursuit of a better future...the fact is that land, water, and energy aren't being used efficiently to produce and distribute our food, and if we want to be responsible shepherds for future generations, we need to embrace solutions that maximize productive yield and profitability using our limited resources."

The ability of these facilities to adapt to almost any 1.5-acre plot of land in the world, as well as the ability to produce 11 to 13 harvests per year, helps set the company apart from competitors, as well as traditional farming methods.

These greenhouses could potentially cut down the time it takes for food to reach people’s shelves from weeks to days. This type of technology could be very beneficial for people worldwide, considering food insecurity is still a massive problem worldwide.

With food tech becoming a growing market for investors and startups alike, Eden Green Technology is seemingly setting itself up to have a commanding position in the - no pun intended - field.
