Vertical farming with one partner – A comprehensive turn-key solution from Netled

At Netled, we believe that vertical farming is the farming solution of the future. Environmental issues and climate change set various challenges on traditional farming methods. As a closed farming system, the vertical farm is protected from extreme weather conditions, pollution, and lack of freshwater resources. It enables the production of clean, safe, and sustainable products to all consumers around the globe.

With vertical farming, food’s journey from production facilities to tables is remarkably shorter, as the food can be produced and distributed within the local area. Global dependence can thus be reduced. Vertically farmed products are not only a solution to self-sufficiency, but the farming method also helps to increase the productivity and quality of leafy greens and vegetables. As the quality of products is improved, and the travel time and distance are minimized, the possibility of wastage due to poor quality is reduced to a minimum.

Our mission is to enhance vertical farming by providing the best technology, expertise, and guidance for vertical farming projects and actors all around the world.

Our Vera® Vertical Farming System represents the most advanced vertical farming technology in the world. Long history with horticultural lighting design has made us experts in indoor farming technology and the best growing techniques: climate control, automation, irrigation, lighting, growing media, plant varieties as well as specific recipes, which we produce in our own demo facility in Finland.

We are not just a technology provider; we give guidance and help for the whole project: financing, business models, Return of Investment, and the entire supply chain. All vertical farming projects are always designed based on unique customer needs and prerequisites – Our knowledge of best practices is at our customers’ disposal. As a comprehensive turn-key solution, Vera® offers an easy and efficient solution for every grower.
