The world population is growing rapidly, it is now around 7 billion people and is estimated to exceed 9 billion by 2050. The demand for quality, nutritious, healthy and fresh products is increasing sharply and vertical farms offer a new production and distribution channel to meet these expectations.

This culture method makes it possible to work in fully controlled environments (irrigation, temperature, light, etc.). The use and control of light, offered by VGD, combined with the good climatic conditions defined by the producer, allow significant productions with high added value meeting consumer demand.

Vertical farms allow the continuous, homogeneous and controlled production of quality food in large quantities. This practice remains controversial in relation to the cost of setting up and managing. However, the evolutions and improvements are permanent, which is encouraging and promising.
Lighting being an essential part of the proper functioning of these systems, VGD supports, with its expertise, all vertical truss projects.
