How Controlled Environment Agriculture can aid the protein transition

As the world shifts towards plant-based sources of protein, we will need to increase production to meet demand without reducing the supply of fresh produce. Controlled environment agriculture (CEA), in the form of greenhouse or vertical farming integrations, could provide an appropriate solution to meet this demand. However, at LettUs Grow we believe in careful and thoughtful innovation. Making sure that we don’t deliver a high-tech solution just for the sake of a high-tech solution is vital. To properly utilize CEA in the protein transition imperative, we must carefully consider: the technology chosen; the crops grown; the stages of growth; and the wider economic, environmental and social model behind a controlled environment solution.

A presentation by Lilly Manzoni, Head of Research & Development at LettUs Grow.

Victor Poncelet is speaker in the joint session of the Protein Transition – Vertical Farming Conference

On the pursuit of financially viable models in the protein transition. We live in an economical ecosystem where technological breakthroughs from early adopters find difficulties to prove their financial viability. The farming sector is no stranger to this reality. This presentation aims to open minds into the potential of multi-revenue models within the protein transition theme. The idea is simple: be on the constant search of technological symbiosis within different kinds of crops and rearing methods to create multi-revenue models that reach profitability within the current economical context.
