GROWx developed a fully robotized data driven vertical farming system that we are using for our own microgreens production at Chef’s Farm Amsterdam but are also going to roll out over the world for producing microgreens, herbs and salads.

About Ard van de Kreeke
With a background of organic farming I am now managing GROWx and Chef’s Farm in the scaling and developing of vertical farming systems.
GROWx is a vertical farming company. Delivering a complete solution in a Farming as a Service concept. With our in house developed technology and software. We sell today in the Dutch market under the brand Chef’s Farm microgreens.
The future is urban and we’re here to feed it.
We see a future where your food supply travels across the street, not the ocean. Where greens are delivered fresh after travelling 10 km, not 10,000. Where you are the first person to touch your food after your farmer. From farm to table, from seed to store, never leaving the city limits.
Well, with GROWx, we’re taking a step in the right direction. As Amsterdam’s first vertical farm, we’re able to bring fresh, flawless produce straight to the heart of the city, bridging the unnecessary gap between supply and demand. Using renewable energy and circular packaging, we’re cleaning up the environment – one happy tummy at a time.
