The production of organic crops in the vertical farming method is a key trend in the organic fruit and nuts farming market. The method of cultivating crops indoor by utilizing vertical space to enhance growth is known as vertical farming. A vertical farm will increase food production per acre of land and by sitting near an urban environment, this can minimize long distribution chains and get fresher food to consumers’ tables. Using this process, a US-based company, Plenty, produces fruit and vegetables and the company is building a 100,000 square foot vertical farming warehouse. This farm is planned to generate 4.5 million pounds of greens each year.

In June 2017, the San Francisco-based field-scale vertical farming company, Plenty, acquired Bright Agrotech LLC for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition will help Plenty realize its plans to build field-scale indoor farms around the world, bringing the highest quality produce and healthy diets to everyone’s budget. Bright Agrotech LLC is a vertical farming company based out of Laramie, Wyoming.

The increasing demand for organic food is a key factor driving the growth of the organic fruit and nut farming market. One of the most important realization worldwide during the COVID 19 pandemic is the need to develop strong immunity as a potential barrier against deadly viruses.

In 2020, the global organic food industry will be experiencing rapid growth as customers continue to recognize immunity as essential weaponry. Therefore, this increasing demand for organic food is expected to drive the growth of the organic fruit and nut farming market.
