Global food production as we know it is at the beginning of a huge transition. New technological innovations are opening new farming paradigms such as vertical farming. As the world populations continue to rise, communities continue to urbanize and climate change places increasing uncertainty on crop production, global food security is falling under increasing pressure as the frailties of traditional food supply chains are increasingly being highlighted.
Now more than ever before, there is an urgent need to identify and develop innovative methods for sustainable food production at both national and local scales. Vertical farming stands to be one such solution, offering a promising avenue of food production that could offer sustainable and innovative solutions for global food security and realizing true zero-mile city food supply.
