Former pupils David Farquhar, Class of ‘75 and Sarah Willis, Class of ‘97 of Scottish agritech business Intelligent Growth Solutions (IGS) continued the RGC Impact Series last night which celebrates the achievements of members of the Gordon’s Community who make a positive impact on the world. During the webinar David and Sarah explored food security looking at the use of vertical farming to grow food any time and in any place.
Winner of last year’s AGTECH Breakthrough Award for Vertical Farming Solution of the Year, IGS recently secured £42 million Series B fundraising. The team have developed platforms that create ideal climates for plants and people. Their technology has been designed to provide access to safe and nutritious food which can be grown in-country, and they believe their innovative approach can overcome the most challenging growing conditions enabling food production all around the world.
