Where is our system installed and running
📍 In Switzerland
Initially, Domaine Des Mattines had chosen HYDROponics as their cultivation technology. The investment looked interesting and so did the payback, but then, reality hit them: the quality of produce, especially lettuce, varied significantly depending on the time of year. Also, when a plant was infected, many crops were lost due to the phytosanitary risks of having the roots connected. So, they decided to give the twist.
Thanks to the installation of an AEROponic Greenhouse of 500m2
in Geneva, he increased his yields and lowered his expenses by using less water and nutrients. It also allowed Jeremy to cultivate a larger variety of crops and expand into aromatic herbs.
High-quality production 24/7/365
From HYDROponics to AEROponics
📍 In France
Cultivation in open fields did not ensure MidiFlore to meet the expectations of their clients all year long. Erratic climate events affected both their own open field production but also their supply chain. Switching to an aeroponic greenhouse allows a better consistency in production but also to get rid of pesticide and offers better working conditions for the employees who work standing in a friendlier environment.
Thanks to the installation of an AEROponic Greenhouse of 3500m2
in France, they ensure a year-round production of high quality fresh herbs. Local production is cheaper for her than the cost of imports, and enjoys offering healthy, pesticide-free products to its customers. This change also had an impact on the staff, as they now work in better conditions compared to the open field. Less stress for employees and a controlled environment with user-friendly technology.
Local production cheaper than imports
From Open Field to AEROponics
📍 In France
Part of the herbs and lettuces bagged by Les Crudettes was imported from Spain, seeing the increasing water stress on local producers and the threat it poses for their supply chain. Freshness, quality and flavor are also compromised during the long import process. To solve these issues they decided to integrate vertically and start to produce their own aromatic herbs right next to their processing plant.
Thanks to the installation of an AEROponic Greenhouse of 7000m2
in France, close to Orléans, they are producing all of their bagged aromatic herbs locally in a controlled environment, protecting them from erratic weather patterns that could disrupt their supply chain. By having a flexible system that can produce a wide range of products, Les Crudettes is answering to the French consumers demands to have access to locally grown, zero pesticide aromatic herbs all year long.
Fresh herbs non-stop
Streamlining the Supply Chain
📍 In Kuwait
One of the main objectives for The Green Life Company was to significantly minimize water use in agricultural production in the region: AEROponics turned out to be the ideal investment since it saves 96% of water compared to the open field, which not only reduces the bill but with so little water in the system it also allows them to cool down the nutrient solution before it’s sprayed on the roots, making it possible to
grow consistently in such a hot environment.
With the installation of an AEROponic Greenhouse of 6000m2 in Kuwait, he collaborated on the country’s vision to enhace food security by supplying fresh high-quality crops thanks to the control and balance in the root zone that our system brings. This installation will produce 70 tonnes of aromatic herbs and 210 tonnes of salad a year, thereby avoiding 17 cargo flights and the CO2 they would emit. Profitable and ecological!
