Scaling the future for urban and indoor farming across the globeSeptember 21, 2023
Spencer Lodge is a serial entrepreneur in Dubai and across the Middle East. His podcast features industry experts from different sectors about their journeys and lessons. In this episode, he talks to SMARTKAS’ CEO Dr. David Meszaros on how SMARTKAS tackles fruit and vegetable production for the fast-growing population in the face of climate change.
SMARTKAS’ AI-powered smart farms can be placed in urban areas, around which the majority of the growing population is going to be centered. This will cut on the cost of transport for any food export-import industry.
Spencer and David also discuss many other important aspects of SMARTKAS’ business model, including a 28-day cycle in harvesting strawberries, no pesticides, 95 % less water, electricity generated through renewable sources, and even the potential to partner up with a mega-polluter to upcycle their waste as a power source for the smart farm.
