Nuvege (also called “Green Green Earth”) is a hydroponic vertical farming company based out of Kyoto, Japan. Currently they only produce lettuces but they appear to be a well-established business. This is what they say about themselves and their technology:
Nuvege’s innovative hydroponic technology is unlike any other conventional hydroponic system that exists today. Nuvege’s proprietary lighting network (NLN) uniquely increases the yield rate of vegetable growth by equalizing light emissions that also advance photosynthesis through increased levels of carbon dioxide. Our lettuce products, grown in our protected “Vertical Farming Environments” with our patented technology, are unaffected by erratic weather, climatic events, bacterial disease, and remain unthreatened by contaminants of any kind.
The result is a form of extraordinarily healthy, organic produce that is unmatched anywhere in the world for its quality and content.
Nuvege - is the healthy, sustainable business model for the future of the world’s food supply.
Our unique Vertical Farming Environments utilize “vertical space” for our growth environments. This means that the tens of thousands of square feet or acreage normally required for the production of a high volume of product is now done vertically. For example, our facility in Kyoto, Japan, is @ 30,000 horizontal square feet, and is the lead location for our operations. Our Vertical Farming Environment in this location now utilizes over 57,000 of vertical square feet of growth environment within the same space.
Our intent is that our innovative Vertical Farming Techniques will provide a universal working model for safe and economical growth environments for the rest of the world.
Nuvege’s current corporate goals include efforts to establish branch operations throughout Asia and in urban centers throughout the United States.
