Charlie Guy Wins March's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Wed, 02 May 2018

Charlie Guy won March's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, LettUs Grow.

Business Description

The majority of our “fresh” produce is imported out of season, often travelling hundreds of miles to reach our plates. LettUs Grow is designing and developing indoor irrigation equipment that will allow vertical farmers to consistently grow more fresh produce near the point of consumption, reducing air miles and food waste throughout the supply chain. LettUs Grow’s patent-pending modular aeroponic system delivers consistently high yields for vertical farms, whilst their farm management software reduces production costs. Aeroponics is a methodology of growing plants without soil, where the roots are watered using a fine mist. Not only does this deliver better flavour and faster growth, but it uses up to 95% less water than traditional agriculture.
Commiserations to Stephen Ao (EcoBox), Sam Ghazizadeh (Captum Technology), George Kalligeros (Pushme Bike) and Haydn Kirkman (Airshare Transfers)
