According to Netled’s CEO, Niko Kivoja (pictured), Netled has invested heavily in technology, personnel, and marketing in order to expand the company’s reach in European, North American, and Asian markets.
“We have recently exported our first vertical farms to Poland and Sweden, and sold our first vertical farm to Canada”, Kivioja says.
“We believe that Netled is in a strong position to acquire the number one position in this technology in the next few years. The world needs new solutions for sustainable food production, and our focus will remain on exploiting this market potential which is extremely large.”
