Planet Farms is a leading vertical farming company, founded in 2018 in Milan, that has developed a vertical cultivation system unique in the world, allowing the perfect harmonization of all the fundamental parameters for cultivating rich in taste and highly nutritious greens.
The union of world-class technology and the best of Italian agronomic tradition offers a concrete, scalable answer to the need for greens that are healthy, high quality, available all year round, affordable for everyone, and have low environmental impact.
Planet Farms represents a fully integrated supply chain, where a seed enters and a finished product comes out.
A virtuous system of food production capable of guaranteeing food safety and responding to sudden climatic shocks that risk jeopardizing regular food supply.
Planet Farms was born out of an idea of Luca Travaglini, immediately embraced by the co-founder, co-CEO, and lifelong friend Daniele Benatoff. The project journey begins with a research and development initiative within Luca’s family business Travaglini S.p.A and today can count on the support of industrial and strategic partners which includes large companies and mainly Italian entrepreneurs.
After 4 years of research and development and an investment of several million euros, Planet Farms has constructed, near Milan in Cavenago di Brianza, the largest vertical farm in Europe, one of the largest and most advanced in the world, in terms of technology and automation.
The 10,000 square meter plant has been designed by Studio Dordoni Architects and it will be followed by the creation of at least another five new plants between Italy and Europe.
Planet Farms has the ambition to constitute the new agricultural paradigm, for the benefit of everyone, without compromise.
Planet Farms currently grows a range of ready-to-eat leafy greens, available on the shelf as three ‘Yummixes’ (a spicy, peppery and delicate mix) and two single varieties (rocket and green baby leaf lettuce). Planet Farms is quality driven, delivering exceptionally tasting, sustainable products year round.
