Freight Farms president and co-founder Jon Friedman took to the stage at DEVELOP3D LIVE USA to tell us how his company is shaping the future of farming – using a standard shipping container.

By building inside an automated vertical hydroponic farm, food can be grown inside 356 days a year, whatever the weather or daylight hours, and the whole process can be controlled from an iPhone, changing the infrastructure for food production.

The team is designing the full system to fit in each container – including a full hydroponics set-up – ready to ship them across the world.
