It all started when three friends and entrepreneurs from the small Swedish town of Tibro found themselves wondering if there was perhaps a way to make the food supply chain more sustainable and resilient by producing more food locally. They realized that emerging technologies had made indoor farming a viable possibility and Tibro had empty warehouses that could be turned into farms. And that’s how Ljusgårda AB was born. Looking for a proven and scalable indoor farming technology, they naturally turned to REFARMERS for a ZipFarmTM.
“Our goal is to produce tasty high-quality vegetables that our customers can eat with a good conscience. No pesticides, low water consumption and a 100% renewable energy, and since the products are locally produced, we avoid long transports and emission.” says Andreas Wilhelmsson, CEO of Ljusgårda.
