Specialist grower launches GrowModule 365 with Bunzl Speciality Business

27 October 2016 by

Paul Brown, managing director of GrowModule 365 said: "GrowModule365 represents over 10 years of research and development by our partner and director Ken Holland and to the best of our knowledge, the concept, technology and knowhow is unique in its ability to successfully grow root vegetables as well as leaf."

"This is one of the most exciting projects I've ever been fortunate enough to be involved with. From local cottage industries, to solutions for national growers and potentially a food growing solution to aid developing countries around the world - who knows where this journey could lead! Watch this space…"

Holland has conducted more than five years of rigorous trialling and growing to ensure that each GrowModule cultivates only the very best tasting and highest quality fresh produce, using cutting edge technology.

"GrowModule 365 utilises game-changing technology to ensure optimum performance. Each module contains a fully remote controlled growing system that you can operate from anywhere in the world with an app," explained Holland.

Using 90% less water than open-field farming methods, crops will be completely unaffected by harmful chemicals, unpredictable climates and pests which come as factors in traditional growing.

Holland and Brown are confident that the technology will benefit several industry sectors, including: Defence, Education, Prison Services, Urban City Dwellings, fresh produce suppliers, contract caterers and hoteliers and restaurateurs.

The company, based in Peterlee, Co. Durham has designed and commissioned the build of a pre-built system which contains all of the required components for commercial food production and enables anyone to grow fresh produce all year round, regardless of weather, location or ability.
