IGS announces referral partnership with IREP in Middle East

EDINBURGH-headquartered indoor agritech specialist IGS has announced a referral partnership agreement with International Real Estate Partners (IREP), the facilities management firm.

The agreement is specifically focused on indoor vertical farming for the UAE and Saudi Arabian markets.

It will enhance the capacity for IGS to service the Middle East market and bring greater opportunity to secure and deploy vertical farming platforms across the region

The agreement establishes the opportunity for IREP to refer potential customers and support in the deployment, construction and management of vertical farms.

The highly sophisticated plug-and-play vertical farming technology developed by IGS assures the efficient production of food in any location in the world. The modular indoor farms offer an highly controllable platform designed to maximise productivity whilst minimising energy consumption and allowing the production of consistently high-quality produce at scale.

Ole Mygind, IGS Agri business managing director said: “The signing of this agreement is a very positive step forward for both IGS and IREP in the future deployment of vertical farming platforms in the Middle East. The imperative need for systems such as ours has been highlighted in the last few weeks as global reliance on complex food supply chains has been dramatically impacted.

“Many countries around the world have plans to secure an independent and sustainable food supply chain. Vertical farming can be a key part of that solution, we believe, particularly in areas where arable land is minimal and there is a high reliance on importing food. These systems offer a secure, controlled environment, independent of weather and location to provide a sustainable, secure food supply across a range of crops.”
