The joint venture combines their global resources with multi-layered, automated robotic growing platforms of The Codema Systems Group and Verdant’s proprietary Aeroponic Terrace Garden Growing Systems, their eco-sustainable, clean tech growing practices and their cloud based control systems.
The joint venture will capitalize on the strong reputation that Codema has developed over the past 50 years in delivering innovative technologies for the horticultural industry.
“Working together reflects each organization’s strong commitment to providing commercial customers, anywhere in the world, with the most future proofed solution for cleanly, profitably and resource efficiently growing high quality produce,” commented Gideon de Jager, President of Codema. “Incorporating the Verdant AgriFactory™ into our portfolio expands Codema’s footprint in indoor growing dramatically. With the Verdant AgriFactory™ we have found the most robust solution for effectively meeting the growing and demanding needs of our diverse customer base.”
The Verdant AgriFactory™ was designed to address the pressing global need for a safer, more predictable and cost effective method of food production, said Dr. Douglas James, CEO of Verdant Global. “We are delighted to be working with Codema who operate at the highest standard of excellence in our industry.”
The Verdant AgriFactory™ eliminates the need for expensive, and diminishing arable land: brings growing to the backyard of points of consumption and uses resources more efficiently than any other method in use. “The Verdant AgriFactory™ can grow the freshest and best tasting produce all year round, anywhere on the planet, meeting the unique needs of each local marketplace” according to Dr. James.
