Just 15 plant crops have traditionally provided 90 percent of the world's food energy intake (excluding meat), with rice, maize, and wheat comprising 2/3 of human food consumption.
Changing climate will likely disrupt traditional crop growing methods around the world. The human population is predicted to reach 10 billion by 2050, with most people living in dense urban areas. New crops and new methods of efficiently producing agricultural products in urban environments are required to maintain food security and climate resilience.
At Planet Duckweed, we use the fastest growing plant on Earth to bring you food grown using sustainable methods.
We utilize a vertical hydroponic growth system that enables a delocalized source of fresh produce on demand, decreasing the carbon footprint for food and feed production. Food that can be grown more efficiently and closer to the consumer than ever before!
