Urban Crop Solutions has once again been named the ‘Indoor Farming Company of the Year’ by the 3rd annual AgTech Breakthrough Awards, in another endorsement of their end-to-end, and total solution offering.
The AgTech Breakthrough Awards named several products, solutions, and companies within the agricultural technology market, as winners of awards in multiple categories. The award was announced after a rigorous process of review, scoring, and analysis of over 1,600 submissions. Within the Indoor Farming category, awards were given for best providers of lighting systems, automation, and environmental monitoring – with Urban Crop Solutions named the Indoor Farming Company of the Year, in a recognition of their complete and total offering.
“We’re honoured to have once again been recognised as the indoor farming company of the year – another recognition of the fact that our approach has been, and continues to be successful” states Jean-Pierre Coene, CEO of Urban Crop Solutions.
As an end-to-end indoor farming solutions provider, Urban Crop Solution carries their clients through the entire indoor farming journey as required by their client – from indoor biology and research trials at their own research centre, through to business planning, technology and installation – and after-sales support and maintenance.
“We have always said that our sales approach is, and will remain, that of an ROI-based one. In that we want to work with our customers to select the right crops for their market or end-application. And ensure that they have a solid and feasible business plan in place prior to proceeding with a sale. We have therefore been working over the years to advance our entire offering” explained company Founder & CTO, Maarten Vandecruys.
Urban Crop Solutions continue to diversify and advance their value offering, with several new product updates, commercial partnerships, and the addition of a financing scheme added to their portfolio in the past year. They have furthermore achieved with their ModuleX plant factory, industry-record electrical efficiency, an indicator of high importance in indoor vertical farming. This alongside collaborations in the biotech and cellular agriculture sphere, a high-profile ModuleX project sale announcement in Saudi Arabia, and ongoing repeat sales and research collaborations at local level.
