Crop One Holdings, Inc., San Mateo, Calif., through its FreshBox Farms brand, formed a joint venture with Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC), Dubai, to build what is said to be the world’s largest vertical farming facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The $40 million, 130,000-square-foot controlled environment facility will produce 6,000 pounds of high-quality, herbicide- and pesticide-free leafy greens, harvested daily, using 99% less water than outdoor fields.
