The United Nations expects the global population to surge to nearly 10 billion by 2050, creating many more mouths to feed and putting more pressure on natural resources. In addition, climate and labor concerns, supply chain issues and the COVID-19 pandemic have forced governments, scientists and businesses to reassess how we feed the world. Undeterred by the complexity of the problem we encourage the agricultural community to join us as we work to create a more resilient food system designed for the long-term wellbeing of people and the planet. AppHarvest uses approximately 2.08 gallons of water per pound of tomatoes; over 90% less than the global average of 25 gallons per pound. Our controlled indoor environment promotes climate resiliency. Our hybrid lighting allows us to use LED lights that are 40% more efficient than traditional lighting. We use a combination of high-tech and low-tech solutions to avoid pests and to ensure the health of our plants. Our first line of defense is advanced integrated pest management(IPM) with a team that includes an IPM manager and IPM scouts. We are both a certified B Corp and Public Benefit Corporation because improving the lives of employees and the communities in which we operate and driving environmental change in agriculture is core to our business values. AppHarvest is uniquely positioned to redefine agriculture.
