A NEED
FOR CHANGE

A NEED
FOR CHANGE

Climate change, population growth and chemical usage in farming will destroy the environment and decimate quality food stocks worldwide. At Growcer, we believe that our Automated Urban Vertical Farm is the solution.

9 BILLION BY 2050

GLOBAL WARMING

ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE

CLIMATE REFUGEES

SOCIAL FRAGILITY

By 2050, there will be around 9 billion people on earth. The systems we have for food production are incapable of meeting the demands of this growing global population. To avoid significant societal issues, we need a new approach.

In addition to population growth, climate change will degrade the current land-based system’s functionality. As weather patterns change, land-based yields will too.

If we fail to develop a new approach, humanity is at risk of over-farming (and destroying) arable land, failing to feed the population with healthy food, and destroying natural resources that can’t be easily recovered (such as water systems).

All of this points to a potentially existential threat to humanity, connected directly to our ability to feed ourselves. In the medium term, climate refugees will challenge societies worldwide. The sheer volume of people displaced and needing support will exceed any migration caused by wars.

Society is shockingly fragile when basic needs (food/water) are not met.

WE NEED A PARADIGM SHIFT FROM LAND-BASED FARMING, TO URBAN VERTICAL FARMING

WE NEED A PARADIGM SHIFT FROM LAND-BASED FARMING, TO URBAN VERTICAL FARMING

01
OUR AUTOMATED VERTICAL FARM DESIGN

— Let’s us grow year-round, in stable conditions,
with low land usage.It can also be located
in high density urban areas.

02

NO PESTICIDES

—Eliminates the need for pesticide and herbicide
use and ensures that the optimal amount of water is
used.

03
ADVANCED ROBOTICS AND AI

— The farm is fully automated to eliminate 90% of
labor costs, increase the consistency of production,
and guarantee high quality produce.

04
LOCATED AT DISTRIBUTION CENTERS

— Saves transport related costs and reduces the
environmental impact of carbon emissions from that
transport. Vertical farming in urban centers
benefits the consumer, the producer and the planet.

TECHNOLOGY IS THE KEY

We use state of the art technology in our farms. Fully automated,our
facilities only require low amounts of labor for maintenance. Through this,
we can cut operational costs and enable high efficiency. By design, our
facilities are optimised for urban locations and will benefit the entire population.

USEFUL TECHNOLOGY

USEFUL TECHNOLOGY

  • 95% of water saved
  • Reduced transport costs
  • Low cost (fully automated urban argiculture)
  • Consistency in costs
  • Consistent product quality
  • Consistent quantity / yield

Europe’s most automated Vertical Farm in Basel (CH)

Growcer is setting up Switzerland’s first vertical farm in Basel. At the same time, it’s one of Europe’s most automated Vertical Farms using latest achievements in Robotics & AI. The farm is six floors high and can produce leafy vegetables, herbs, shoots and fruit all year round.
How do we feed a growing population most of whom live in cities?

Why We Don’t Use Containers For Our Farms

When you decide to start a vertical farm, you’re immediately faced with a number of choices.
Should you put your farm in an urban location, or a rural location?
In a cold environment, or a warm one?
Should you use hydroponic systems, or soil?

Growcer - Vertical Farm vs. Greenhouse

Vertical Farming vs. Greenhouse Farming

When starting a farming operation, the first choice you face is what type of farm to start. The options are many: indoor vs. outdoor; arable vs pastoral; intensive vs. extensive. For farmers going the indoor route, one of the biggest decisions is between vertical farms and greenhouses. Both vertical farms and greenhouses operate …..
