The Government of Aruba has approved a vertical farming project using Canadian company Affinor Growers’ vertical farming technology.

According to the release, the technology will allow the project to produce crops year-round in Aruba’s tropical climate, making use of land that was previously unfit for farming.

“Not only will this project have a substantial, and lasting, economic impact on Aruba, but this will be the first step in revolutionizing the farming industry in the Caribbean,” says Nick Brusatore, CEO of Affinor Growers. “This is the perfect showcase for our vertical farming technology and we hope this will act as a catalyst for other vertical farming projects around the world.”

Using vertical farming technology, Affinor Growers produces a number of crops including romaine lettuce, spinach, and strawberries.
