Valcent EU is planning a Verticrop launch on Sept. 30th at the zoo. Some 300 people are expected to attend, including officials from the parent company Valcent Products Inc. , as well as other shareholders. Pictures and a short video will be posted to the parent company’s website in early October.

verticrop_rootsValcent EU managing director Chris Bradford said the project was completed within budget and on time. “This means that the company and its contractors have worked well together and can now assemble and ship commercial size VertiCrop units in a seamless manner.”

Plant curator Kevin Frediani said zoo officials are confident the system will produce a variety of vegetables and crops at a great cost-savings for the zoo, with the added value of producing fresh and more nutritious food on a year-round basis.
