Yamaha’s agricultural technology investments leader says he is observing the vertical farming market with a view to backing startups in the sector.
“Vertical farming is one of those technologies which has the ability to transform the way food is grown and consumed.
“It’s very capital-intensive, but it’s something that – if successful and somebody is able to get that model to work – I think can be a big game-changer for sure.
“It’s an area that we’ve focused on. We haven’t found something yet to invest in, but there’s a lot of really smart people doing amazing things, so it’s certainly on our radar.”
