Saudi Environment Ministry launches urban vertical farm project

Saudi Environment Ministry launches urban vertical farm project

Riyadh: The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has unveiled an initiative aimed at transforming the landscape of food production and distribution in Saudi Arabia.

The initiative, the first of its kind in the region, allows customers to obtain fresh food products grown in the Kingdom.

Ahmed Al-Eyada, the undersecretary of the ministry, graced the launch event and emphasized its significance for the nation's agricultural sector.

Executed in collaboration with a leading bio-agriculture company, the urban vertical farm project has found its inaugural home at Danube markets in Riyadh. These markets now boast commercial display units showcasing an array of fresh produce, including lettuce, coriander, parsley and broccoli.

The ministry has set an ambitious target of establishing between 600 to 1,000 urban farms across all markets in Saudi Arabia over the next five years. This initiative aims to meet a substantial portion of the domestic demand for agricultural products and vegetables.

Urban vertical farming offers multiple benefits for both consumers and the environment. By providing high-quality, locally sourced produce, it ensures freshness and nutritional value while reducing waste and promoting sustainability. Moreover, it creates job opportunities and addresses logistical challenges associated with traditional farming practices.
