Kroger partners with German vertical farming start-up

American supermarket giant Kroger has unveiled a partnership with vertical farm start-up Infarm.

Berlin-based Infarm offers innovative ‘modular’ vertical farming units that can be installed inside supermarket stores providing shoppers with fresh produce and negating the need for transportation.

In the UK and Europe, Infarm has partnered with Marks and Spencer, Metro, Casino and with Amazon’s grocery delivery service Amazon Fresh.

Kroger said Infarm vertical farming units would launch in two of its 15 Quality Food Centers stores due to open in Washington state.
