GreenFactory Emirates, a joint venture between GrowGroup IFS out of the Netherlands and RainMakers Capital Investment out of the UAE, plans to produce 10,000 tons of produce annually through a combination of both vertical and flat formats for greens and herbs. A strong political partnership between embassies also drove the collaboration forward. This level of growth aligns with the needs of regions like the UAE, which continue to fund efforts to improve domestic food production. The company will also have research support from GAAS Wageningen and Delphy. Clients should take note of the scale of this and other upcoming facilities as well as the capital required ($175 million in this case) to compete.
