HRH Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parma, climate envoy, the Netherlands opened it and led the topic by saying ‘we must reinvent ourselves and produce and consume food more efficiently, food is both a cause and a victim of climate change.’
Many key discussions also took place on the panel that our Founder and CEO Jamie Burrows had the pleasure of speaking on, as well as the Vertical Future hosted breakout session later.
Key topics from Jamie included:
– Capital financing mechanisms for vertical farming
– The nexus between food and water security
– What it takes to build a successful vertical farm
– Partnerships, genetic advancements, and variety selection as a means for more stable crops
– And more!
Key takeaways from the day included recognition ‘for the role of the corporate buyer of new technology and how this is essential to scaling the industry’.
