Happy Veganuary!

It’s nearing the end of January, and before it ends, we wanted to take this opportunity to look back at one of the achievements from last year that we are most proud of, namely when Vertical Future was awarded an Innovate UK-funded grant to lead in developing, alongside the project’s consortium partners, a new source of alternative protein made from amaranth, grown using none other than vertical farming facilities!

By bringing together experts in vertical farming technology and crop biology, the project’s goal is to develop a high-yielding, high-protein and high-quality amaranth crop, that can be used to manufacture new types of meat alternatives in the UK and address the growing demand for plant-based protein.

We hope the results of the project will also help the UK meet our Net Zero Carbon targets by 2050!
