HEALTHIER CITIES FOR THE FUTURE.
Vertical Future is a London-based technology start-up focused on improving health in cities through developing a better, more sustainable food system. Through using smart agriculture technology to build high-tech farms in key urban areas of multiple deprivation, we bring food closer to end-consumers. Smart distribution methods also allow us to limit air pollution and to reduce the time that goods are in transit.
Our MiniCrops initiative, which launched in Summer 2017, now serves over 100 B2B businesses across London and has also enabled thousands of households to access better, fresher food.
VERTICAL FUTURE GOALS.
INCREASE AWARENESS OF HEALTH
AND THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
We want to do more for cities. For us, this means health improvement, targeting many of the issues that go hand in hand with urbanisation.
Health improvement, however, is difficult to achieve without also tackling health and environmental awareness. Urban dwellers need to be aware of how urbanisation affects health before taking meaningful, long-term action.
