The coronavirus has exposed many of the issues involved in our global food supply chain. One fix for these issues is the use of indoor, vertical farming. Companies like Intelligent Growth Solutions in Scotland are using this technique to grow produce closer to its consumers. During the pandemic they have been delivering food packages to locals, even shipping directly to elderly customers who may not have the means to get to the supermarket. This new food delivery process has greatly benefited the community of Dundee, and similar programs are likely to sprout up in the future.
