LONDON, June 10 (Reuters) - British online grocer and technology company Ocado has invested 17 million pounds ($21.6 million) in the newly emerging vertical farming industry, it said on Monday.
Vertical farming involves the production of food in indoor facilities where crops are grown on a series of levels in a precisely-controlled environment.
Ocado said it has formed a joint venture with vertical farming participants 80 Acres Farms and Priva Holding, and has also acquired a 58% stake in Jones Food Company, Europes largest operating vertical farm, based in Scunthorpe, northern England. Together the equity investments will total 17 million pounds.
