Vertical farming presents a cheaper, more environmentally friendly future for agricultural suppliers. The forecasted global growth potential of this technology was presented at the virtually held Food Matters Live 2021 in a webinar entitled “Growing up: the rise of vertical farming.”
Speaking at the event is Jamie Burrows, founder and CEO of Vertical Future, a London-based technology company specialized in controlled-environment-agriculture (CEA).
Vertical Future is a high-growth technology company, headquartered in London, that specialises in controlled environment agriculture (CEA) – a sub-sector of vertical farming.
The company’s holistic approach to engineering, technology, plant science, and automation create a set of technology value propositions in a sector that is experiencing tremendous growth, currently worth as much as $80 billion globally.
The main objective of Vertical Future, the London-based AgTech company that was founded in 2016, is to improve overall population health and to reduce food and health-related inequalities. Vertical Future delivers on this by using technology and data to build a better, smarter food system.

The term ‘automation’ in the vertical farming sector is often greatly exaggerated. Press releases regularly refer to ‘full,’ ‘total,’ or ‘complete’ automation, or similar. When digging beneath the surface, this usually refers to basic operational elements (primarily lights going on or off, nutrient delivery, and modulation of environmental conditions against a baseline). This is not the case for all vertical farming companies, but it is certainly widely prevalent. But what does automation really mean in the context of a vertical farm, and how critical is it?
