[...]
food security, sustainability, OUR environment and the future of agriculture.

FourEverGreen also intends to introduce its own brand by the same name into supermarkets, hotels and health stores in Hong Kong, Southern China and elsewhere.
[...]
We off-take (wholesale) agreements whereby each food item is purchased at an agreed price for a period of time. All produce supplies only local markets thus ensuring a minimal carbon footprint – no air cargo or shipping.

We are also considering other farm facilities such as indoor, thus expanding the scope of growing produce to 12 months a year and providing a bigger variety."

An Organic Indoor Vertical Farm May Be Coming to a City Near You
Intro organic-market.info: FarmedHere, a 90,000-square-foot space in Chicago, is the first organically-certified indoor vertical aquaponic farm in Illinois, it’s also the largest indoor farm in North America. At its Chicago farm, they sell their organic greens and herbs grown under LED lights to 200 customers (Whole Foods is one) all within a 200-mile radius of the farm. The company wants to open 18 indoor vertical farms in cities across the U.S. The short travel distance not only reduces carbon emissions, it also allows for super fresh and nutritious produce." The article doesn't shed light on how the fish will be handled by the robots (keyword: Amazon). Critics also find faulty in the low nutritious content of plants raised soil-free. Furthermore the grey energy for installations and LED lights should also be included in the total environmental foodprint. HAG
