Gro¯v Technologies Receives Prestigious Fast Company 2021 World Changing Ideas Award
VINEYARD, Utah, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Gro¯v Technologies' Olympus Tower Farm was named Honorable Mention of Fast Company's 2021 World Changing Ideas Award. The awards honor the businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to pursuing innovation when it comes to solving health and climate crises, social injustice, or economic inequality.
Named as an Honorable Mention in the Food Category, Gro¯v Technologies' Olympus Tower enters the market at a time when farmers are being asked to do more with less, amid droughts, changing climates and requirements to be more sustainable.
The helix-shaped Olympus Tower is designed with sustainability and economic viability in mind. Utilizing micro-sensors, big data and science-based growing protocols Olympus produces unmatched high-density nutrient (HDN) feed that has shown to benefit the animals and improve feed-to-yield efficiency. Taking up only 857 square feet of space, just one Olympus Tower can produce 6,000 pounds of sprouted wheat/barley grass per day using less than 5% of the water and replace over 35-50 acres used in traditional farming.
"The Western U.S. is in one of the most severe droughts in decades, and food security is a growing concern around the world," said Steve Lindsley, president of Gro¯v Technologies. "Gro¯v's vision is to give farmers the science and tchnology they need to address these issues and grow their businesses for generations to come. Our early studies have shown that our technology and the Tower Farm are having a positive impact on both the planet and the farmers' bottom-line."
In addition to Grov's indoor feed center at the Bateman Mosida Farms in Utah, the company recently announced sales agreements with the Hunter Ridge Dairy in Colorado and the River Ranch Dairy in California. These two new installations will be completed later this year.
"There is no question our society and planet are facing deeply troubling times. So, it's important to recognize organizations that are using their ingenuity, impact, design, scalability, and passion to solve these problems," says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. "Our journalists, under the leadership of senior editor Morgan Clendaniel, have discovered some of the most groundbreaking projects that have launched since the start of 2020."
