We set out to support people that - like us - believe in a better, more efficient food production system. Leveraging our experience in building innovative food-related businesses, we envision this project providing real opportunities and disrupting our broken global food system.
The Growcer is a social enterprise that provides remote Canadian regions the ability to grow fresh produce using modular hydroponic systems. Our systems combat the issue of food insecurity by providing a steady stream of fresh produce at an affordable price, while using 91% less water than traditional agriculture. We also provide ongoing services for local owner-operators to offer additional products to their community, including meal packages, a series of market generation tools, and a subscription-based automation system that cuts labour requirements by 80%.
