About CubicFarm Systems Corp. (TSX: CUB)
FOUNDED BY FARMERS
Farmers are some of the most innovative people we know. CubicFarms was founded by farmers who worked for years to find the solution to growing issues affecting outdoor farms. The origin of the company dates back to 2008, when Jack Benne and his son Leo Benne, both farmers themselves, visited a farm in Puerto Rico that had been devastated by a hurricane. They saw how difficult it is to grow fresh produce outdoors in challenging conditions. That experience sparked an idea and by the time their return flight home touched down, they had the initial sketch of an indoor growing system that could grow fresh produce indoors, 365-days a year, anywhere in the world.
Empowering local chain agriculture
Our mission is to create agriculture technologies to feed a changing world. To accomplish this, we must help farmers to keep growing. It’s our responsibility not to simply understand the global food security crisis we’re facing but to take significant action. With our automated indoor modular agriculture technologies, we empower farmers to localize plant, food, and livestock feed production at commercial scale while also protecting our people, resources, and economy.
Enabling local food & feed ecosystems
Our vision is to transform the agriculture system to enable local food and feed independence. Our Local Chain Ag-Tech solutions directly empower farmers, protect our natural resources, and contribute to a zero-hunger future. We convert wasteful long supply chain agriculture into local chains creating local independent food ecosystems now and for future generations.
Food and feed localized in a responsible, sustainable, and affordable way
With our commercial scale, automated, indoor growing technologies and support services, we help our Farmer Partners to truly make an impact in the world. To save our resources and ourselves, food and feed must be localized, grown indoors and use a minimum of resources in a responsible, sustainable, and affordable manner. Our Local Chain Ag-Tech solutions directly empower farmers, protect our natural resources, and contribute to a zero-hunger future.
