US Chloe Organics has received 103 million from an investor to combine greenhouse technology and indoor agriculture.

The herbal growing business already accounts for 35% of the U.S. herbal market. The company, based in the state of South Carolina on the east coast of the United States, cultivates it in open ground and partly under glass. The expansion of production will be realized mainly through greenhouses and indoor agriculture. The investor is Decennial Group, a real estate company with an investment of $ 120 million.

Eight new production sites

Chloe Organics Greenhouse combines the best in both worlds of horticulture and indoor farming. Cultivation takes place on eight new production sites covering an area of ​​1 hectare, arranged in layers, under glass, on a cultivated cultivation table with LED lights.

Unlike most vertical farms, Chloe Organics uses cultivated soil, not water. It is possible in the United States while maintaining certification for organic farming. In eight new locations, 90% of the production of herbs, leaf crops and lettuce will take place as a covered crop.
