EverGreen Farm Oy participated in the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) at Abu Dhabi during the 5th and 6th of February, 2018, where it was presented with the Best Indoor Farming Innovation Award by the Minister of State, Her Excellency Mariam Bint Mohammed Saeed Hareb Al Mehairi, from the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority.
During the conference H.E Mariam Bint Mohammed Saeed Hareb Al Mehairi stated “The Food Security Innovation Sessions are an ideal platform for joint action, aimed at putting the government and relevant sectors in a row to explore the future of food security and finding solutions to increase the contribution of the private sector in the food equation of the UAE. We cannot consider the issue of food security as an independent issue and separate from society, we must activate the role of all entities in addressing the challenges we face, taking into consideration that innovation is the key tool for improving food and agricultural production and essential for food security.”
Using the basic principle of hydroponics, Evergreen Farm Oy has developed an innovative vertical indoor farming technology that produces high-quality fruits and vegetables in a state-of-the-art, environmentally controlled, multi-level indoor facility the Grow360 system (previously called the Direct Feed Vertical Hydroponics (DFVH) system.)
The GFIA was founded in 2014 and it is the world’s largest series of events dedicated to showcasing innovations in sustainable agriculture across all types of food production. “The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture is based on the notion that the ongoing drive for innovation in the agriculture sector is the only way to feed 9 billion people sustainably by 2050,” said Nicolas Davison, Director of the Global Forum for Innovation in Agriculture.
Evergreen Farm Oy’s mission is to fundamentally transform agriculture by implementing the technologically advanced and easy-to-use DFVH system throughout the world. Thus, improving crop production while encouraging responsible, innovative farming methods that protect the environment and educate the community.
