Plantae utilizes its unique and proprietary technology engine to create new, purpose-designed plant genetics for 3 main applications: vertical farming, nutrient-enhanced vegetables and cellular agriculture
By stacking plants vertically on shelves inside buildings, vertical farming allows for more than 6 times the yield for a given land area, up to 95% reduction in water and chemical use and enables year-round food production in any climate. This innovative way enables to reduce the environmental strain of food production, provide urban areas better access to fresh foods and more economic growth of fruits and vegetables. Yet, today, vertical farming has limited applications and is suitable mainly only for leafy-greens.
We are here to change it – Plantae is developing purpose-designed plants for vertical farming that are smaller, faster growing, low-light adjusted and flowering/fruiting synchronized.
Vegetables and fruits contain thousands of natural chemicals that help the plant to grow, reproduce and protect themselves from germs, fungi, insects and other threats. These are called phytonutrients. Just as phytonutrients protect the plant, they also play a remarkable role in keeping your body working properly.
We are developing a range of vegetables with high levels of good-for-your-body phytonutrients such as vitamins, minerals, soluble fiber, antioxidants, carotenoids and polyphenols.
Climate change limits and threatens age-old traditional agricultural practices. Furthermore, traditional agriculture contributes to climate change and in the developing world has ethical supply chain challenges. Therefore, a more efficient, sustainable and ethical approach to food production is needed.
Cellular agriculture is the process of farming products and specific phytonutrients from cells, instead of the whole plant.
At Plantae, we harness the power of cellular agriculture to develop game-changing solutions that address sustainability, ethical issues and health concerns.
