The patented system is built into a standard size shipping container, and can be placed in almost any environment. The GrowPod™ system can be equipped with highly advanced sustainable technologies, creating a perfect growing environment with almost no energy requirements.
GrowPods™ are outfitted with a proprietary, customizable rack system, which can contain any number of vertical or horizontal production and propagation levels. Each level contains an appropriate number of crop-specific LED fixtures. By optimizing the wavelengths, the LED lights in the GrowPod™ container can improve the photosynthesis response, allowing controllable, predictable and robust growth, resulting in higher yields in a shorter period of time than conventional production methods.
The processes of GrowPod™ container production are controlled and monitored by a specially designed PC-based sensor and control system, allowing monitoring 24/7 from any device.
"Now, a restaurateur can grow his or her own fresh produce and herbs right in back of the restaurant," said George Natzic, President of GrowPod Solutions. "Imagine the customer's delight when they realize that the delicious food they are enjoying was literally picked moments ago, at the peak of freshness."
According to the National Restaurant Association, the US market size is $782.7 billion per year.
