UK: Sausage making company Heck Food plans vertical farm

North Yorkshire sausage making company Heck Food has revealed plans for a new vertical farm as part of the latest phase of its innovation programme.

"The plans for vertical farming is hugely exciting as this method is precise, time-efficient and waste-free method of growing and will provide inspiration for other producers looking for future food innovation."

Debbie Keeble, co-founder of Heck Food, added: "We are farmers turned producers but now we are able to look to the future of agriculture and how we drive our business forward.

"There are huge benefits to vertical farming – no pesticides or herbicides, less water, no transport, less food waste, higher production, better shelf life – the list is endless.

"Our aim is to be able to produce a wide range of leafy veg and herbs that we can use across the range, delivering tasty flavours from farm, to factory, to plate."
