By Canadian Manufacturing
VANCOUVER — CubicFarm® Systems Corp., a local chain agricultural technology company, announced that the Business Intelligence Group named the HydroGreen Grow System, an indoor growing technology for fresh livestock feed, as “Sustainability Product of the Year” in the 2021 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honour those people, teams, and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission. The judges recognized several finalists for the global awards, including CubicFarms.
“We are proud to reward HydroGreen and recognize CubicFarms for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
The HydroGreen Grow System and the CubicFarm System indoor growing technologies convert wasteful long supply chain agriculture into local chains, enabling farmers to grow more with significantly less land, water, waste, and physical labour. Farmers using these technologies are growing produce and livestock superfeed in any climate year-round.
“We’re thrilled that HydroGreen’s technology has won ‘Sustainability Product of the Year’ for 2021,” said Dan Schmidt, President, HydroGreen. “As a technology company founded by farmers, we’re passionate about helping farmers to keep growing sustainably. HydroGreen’s technology allows farmers to maintain their independence and protects our resources now, and for future generations.”
The HydroGreen Grow System technology was designed for areas impacted by water scarcity and purportedly uses 90% less water than conventional irrigated field crops. Farmers can harvest fresh livestock feed daily, increasing output.
“To reliably feed ourselves going forward, we need to utilize our limited and precious resources much more efficiently and leveraging technology will enable us to do that,” said Dave Dinesen, Chief Executive Officer, CubicFarms. “We believe indoor growing is the solution necessary for more sustainable farming for the future. Congratulations to all recognized by the Business Intelligence Group in this year’s Sustainability Awards!”
