Dedicated facility

If you are thinking more long-term about growing using vertical farming technology, Jones Food Company can build a turn-key facility specifically for your business.

Farm sustainably

Growing food outdoors often require extensive resources at the expense of our natural environment and food quality.

By taking farming vertical this dramatically reduces the amount of resources required and removes the need for some other harmful substances typically associated with field agriculture.

Renewable power

Vertical farms can utilise renewable energy to grow crops. JFC1 uses solar energy to provide ~15% of its power requirements (to be 100% by summer 2022). JFC2 will grow using 100% renewable energy.

90% less water

JFC's vertical farms are able to capture and recirculate water on a huge scale. Each litre of water is cleaned and re-used up to 30x reducing our total water usage by up to 90% per kg of produce grown.

Zero chemicals

Farming outdoors often requires harsh chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. JFC's high-care indoor vertical farms removes the need for these chemicals, improving our food's quality, taste and freshness.

Farm better

Farming has historically been an endeavour against changing external conditions; temperature, rain, wind and so many others.

Growing vertically means taking away all these environmental externalities, allowing farmers to more on what they do best; growing. Ultimately this leads to a fresher product with a longer shelf life and reduced food miles.

Quality first

JFC's expert agronomists and growers can focus their time on growing the best possible herbs and leafy greens. Vertical farming gives our products a more intense flavour and richer nutrient profile.

Local food

The UK grows only ~50% of its vegetables and <20% of its fruit. JFC's vertical farms allow us to grow crops year-round, bringing consumers closer to their food and helping to improve food security in this country.

Lower food miles

In the colder months, herbs and leafy greens are flown in from warmer climates. By growing more food locally we can reduce food miles by up to 95% on certain crops.

Farm more

The primary advantage of JFC's vertical farming technology is the huge increase in yields our systems produce. Our fully automated vertical farms can produce up to 100x the yield per m2 of land whilst reducing operational costs too.

100x yield

By stacking growth on vertical layers, growing crops 24/7, 365 days a year and utilising JFC's proprietary growing methods and software, we are able to dramatically improve farm yields and improve commercial viability.

Full automation

Automation potential is much greater in, space efficient vertical farms. JFC uses state-of-the-art robotics as well as implementing technology from our partner The Ocado Group to operate world-class facilities.

Reduced OPEX

Competitive against indoor hydroponic greenhouses, JFC's vertical farms are the ideal solution to growing the next generation's growing demand for quality fresh produce at an affordable price point.
