Introducing: Crate to Plate

Bringing sustainable, local production of leafy greens to urban communities, Crate to Plate has confirmed its first central London location.

Crate to Plate (in partnership with Urbanologie) is an urban farming business – harnessing state-of-the-art hydroponics technology and eco-friendly innovation – to grow the freshest possible produce, totally chemical and pesticide free. The London-based business has also partnered with REEF Technology – which transforms car parks into multi-use urban ecosystems – at its location in Canary Wharf. 

Three of Crate to Plate’s urban farms have been placed in one of REEF’s London hubs, with the first harvest expected at the end of May. The farms are set to produce over five tonnes of fresh produce per year (including lettuce, rocket, kale, spinach, herbs, microgreens and more), all delivered to consumers within 24 hours of harvest, with zero carbon footprint in transporting from farm to customer.  

Hydroponic vertical farming has proven to have essential advantages over traditional farming methods, allowing Crate to Plate to grow produce locally in urban environments. This approach uses minimal water (95% less than farming with soil), with little space required.

As a result, the produce is as fresh as possible, with consistent quality, and has the highest possible nutrient value – always completely free of pesticides and toxic chemicals. Crate to Plate is bringing this beneficial technology and ethos to new urban markets, contributing to a more sustainable future with higher food security.
