Avisomo’s CEO, Martin Molenaar, comments on the upcoming nomination:

Our nomination to the Fruit Logistica Innovation award is a tremendous recognition of our system and its potential, but it’s also a notable inclusion of vertical farming concepts into the mainstream agricultural landscape. Being nominated among this select group of prominent agriculture actors is a huge motivation for us and we will make sure to use this opportunity to display the beneficial properties of our system and vertical farming in general to all interested parties.
