UF’s track record as a pioneer and new category leader in urban farming has been recognized by global press coverage and our ability to execute seamlessly. Since 2011,
- UF is operating UF001 LokDepot, the worldwide first rooftop farm delivering proof-of-concept (technology) and operational break-even (financial viability). The produce delivered from UF001 was well received by restaurant chefs and end-consumers. Migros, Switzerland’s largest retailer with CHF 27bn in sales, has listed UF branded produce at their flagship retail store in Basel. UF is on the agenda of the executive committee of Migros. As a consequence, Migros has decided to build a first commercial pilot farm in Basel only one year after UF001 has started delivering produce to the test store in Basel with the objective to roll out nationally. The Migros account demonstrates the commercial relevance of UF’s solutions in food retail.
