Established in 2017, Stacked Farm is an automated vertical indoor farm that grows salad greens and herbs. It has gained international interest during the coronavirus pandemic amid concerns about the food supply chain. The Queensland-based company plans to open farms across Australia, and is also looking at moving into retail. Stacked Farm operates every month of the year thanks to its temperature-controlled environment. Its process is effective at growing food in extreme climates, and interest is especially high in places like Dubai, where nearly all food is imported.
