“Two Vancouver-based agritech businesses are paving the way for stronger food security through B.C.’s Agritech Ramp-Up Pilot Program (Ramp-Up) with robotics and technology to support B.C.’s agriculture sector.”

QuantoTech was excited to participate in B.C.’s Agritech Ramp-Up Pilot Program and receive  $25,000 as one of the winners of the Business Development Grant provided by IAF for Cohort 1.

“The funding and the knowledge we gained through Ramp-Up is allowing us to install our new auto-dosing system into our existing showcase grow banks to display. Our technology, paired with our existing grow systems, severely reduces the labour and knowledge required to grow commercial-quality produce, giving small communities the ability to grow high-quality produce year-round and boosting their food security,” Alycia van der Gracht, co-founder, QuantoTech.”

QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. designs, manufactures and operates vertical farms to promote food security and sustainability by bringing fresh produce to unconventional climates and under-served communities. Northern Greens is the brand for produce grown with QuantoTech systems.
