Grocery Retailers:

With Migros, Switerland’s largest grocery retailers with CHF 27bn in sales, UF has successfully demonstrated the ability to secure a major grocery retail key account. Growth with grocery retailers is driven by developing rooftop farms on top of their existing supermarkets, processing and distribution real-estate portfolio, as well as by building farms on third-party buildings such as large industrial conglomerates nearby.
