Vertical Future is a technology company focused on building a better, more sustainable urban food production and supply system.
Established in 2016, we are fast-becoming a market leader in controlled environment food production, with our groundbreaking technologies, production activities, and research and development all set to have a major influence on the future of food.
In London, our first City of choice, we now have two active high-tech production sites, with further sites across London and the UK currently under discussion. Our products - sold under the name of MiniCrops - are regularly used in over 100 restaurants and thousands of households.
Our ultimate mission is to improve the long-term health of urban inhabitants – one leaf at a time.
Well, besides the current food model being broken and other external pressures including climate change and Brexit, poor quality food and eating habits are two of the biggest contributors to obesity and other long-term diseases. In London, the food system is also the single largest contributor to CO2 emissions.
If we don't take action today, there won't be a tomorrow.
Our production sites and in-house technologies allow us to produce high-quality, ethical food, with a high degree of precision and control.
Central to our technologies is automation and precision. Our engineering team is continually developing ways to improve yields, site performance, and control over our growing environments. Working alongside our engineers are our plant scientists, who focus on creating the best, tastiest, healthiest produce possible – as well as advancing our capabilities in key areas of research and development.

We currently have two production sites in London, located in Deptford and London Fields, with a further site planned for development, in London (Zone 1), for 2020. Plans are being put in place to offer monthly tours, in addition to the many other social and community-facing activities each site offers.
Our consumer brand, MiniCrops, is currently used in over 100 restaurants across Central London and in thousands of households.
Provided on-demand, daily, and pesticide-free, the quality and freshness of our produce, together with the speed and ethics of our service, makes our business model hard to match. Below are just a few of the restaurants and food brands that use us on a regular basis.
