ONEFARM BRINGS TOGETHER THE WORLD’S KNOWLEDGE, NETWORK AND EXPERIENCE TO DISRUPT THE CURRENT VALUE CHAIN TO DEVELOP FOOD GROWTH SYSTEMS THAT PROVIDE AFFORDABLE, SAFE AND HEALTHY FOODS IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY.
OneFarm rolls out large scale vertical farms together with local partners to ensure food security for all parts of the population.
OneFarm's goal is to provide affordable fresh healthy food and plant pharmaceuticals to local communities on a global scale to mitigate the upcoming food crisis.
We believe community relationships are key to providing long term sustainable food security. It also ensures community support, access to sites for development, inclusion of local agricultural knowledge and industries, local institutional support, employment, distribution.
Localization opportunities in a global context will also allow South-South food chain development in regions that are disaster prone and climate change affected.
OneFarm combines knowledge about food and plant pharma, technology, infrastructure and data to enable local communities with their own secure food supply. The data produced will reinforce the open source feedback learning system . This will reinforce selection of seeds, new product development and long term control of growing environment leading to first mover advantages.
