OverviewSuggest Edit

Plenty is rethinking agriculture to make fresher, better food available everywhere. The Company's team is building a revolutionary system using technology and plant science to give crops the perfect environment to flourish – with no pesticides or GMOs.

Relative to conventional agriculture, Plenty is building systems that will deliver up to 350X the yield per square foot of land, use 1% as much water, cut thousands of miles out of the supply chain, and deliver consumers produce that is many days fresher. All of these changes lead to exceptional flavor experiences and better nutrition.
