Harvest Urban Farms, a major vertical farm in Vancouver, Canada, starts shipping produce grown under Valoya LED lights. Valoya was selected as light supplier due to the superior performance of the lights and the dedicated support and know-how of the Valoya team.
Harvest Urban Farms launched its first urban vertical farm, in April 2016, at 950 Cordova, in central Vancouver. The farm, which is the first phase of an even larger vertical farm operation, provides Vancouver restaurants and grocery stores with fresh, locally-grown produce year round. The leafy greens and other vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides, using ultra-efficient LED lights and water recycling technology.
