|Most produce on a supermarket shelf is grown thousands of miles away from the eventual consumer, where the climate is more suitable or the season is right, which means it must be shipped over long distances before it gets to the consumers who finally eat it. Much of the quality is lost over the course of these long trips. Urban Barns grows right in the communities of the final consumers so that our crops are on the shelves within hours, not days. In doing so, we plan to introduce the public to a sustained level of freshness that they have never experienced before.
What we do
Urban Barns Foods grows Green Leafy Vegetables in secure, safe, and controlled environments in commercial quantities, with minimal water requirements, creating green leafy vegetables that are superior in nutrients while significantly eliminating CO2 emissions, fungicides, pesticides and insecticides. Our aim is to expand and build Urban Barns throughout North America and the World through a strategic plan of managed and sustainable growth, eventually providing global access to our superior products.
Target markets for fresh green leafy vegetables
Target markets for fresh green leafy vegetables are Major Supermarket Chains, Food Wholesalers, Cruise Ships, and Restaurants.
Urban Barns strives to be the leading supplier of affordable fresh, locally grown, high-quality produce for urban consumers. We will achieve this by building a robust and agile organization with a diversified commercial customer base in every major city in North America and the Middle East, with a commitment to deliver consistent top-quality products.
Our mission is to be the choice provider of local fresh produce to major retail suppliers. Our focus is to use leading edge, proprietary technology to supply optimum quality affordable produce and aggressively gain brand recognition. Our consumer commitment reflects this goal: ‘Fresh, Local, Green’ produce. We aim to create long-term profitable growth and superior returns for shareholders and partners.
