We have taken the next step in our quest to capture a global market by securing IP protection in Singapore – our first overseas patent with more pending. This follows success with our UK patent being granted and also a trademark with the USA.
Our innovative and advanced hydroponic vertical farming technology which enables the farming of crops in small spaces whilst ensuring even greater taste, greater quality and longer shelf life is pioneering the move towards this more sustainable way of plant growth. By meeting both consumer and retailer needs, this patent protects over 6 years of research and development into the pioneering techniques we are fiercely proud of.
Nick Bateman, CEO of GrowPura, said: “From first launching this venture; penetrating international markets with our unrivalled technology has always been on our radar and so making our first meaningful move in the Asian market in such a short space of time is both exciting for us and a statement of intent as to how far and wide we believe this technology can be used.
“Food security is a major global concern and our systems help address a serious need by equipping farmers all around the world with the tools they need to sustain themselves, serve their local communities and even distribute to wider markets.
“We are pleased to have secured this patent in Singapore and expect many more to follow.”
