We started GyroPlant in 2020 to find the most sustainable solutions in indoor Vertical Farming and Controlled Environment Agriculture.
Upon researching farming systems around the world, we discovered a major problem - single-use substrates.
After 150+ design iterations, growing trials with more than 25 farms around the world, in 2022 we launched GyroCup, our innovative solution for the indoor farming industry.

LET'S PREVENT WASTE
Vertical farming (growing food without soil) is producing an ever-increasing amount of our supermarket foods.
Our team have been researching and testing methods of hydroponic/aeroponic growing systems that are more sustainable and easier for growers.
We found the biggest problem in the industry is growing media. They are expensive, non-reusable and create problems with mould and excess algae growth. Often, growing media such as sponge or rock wool are simply thrown into landfill. The unpredictable supply chains for these consumables also threatens farm productivity. Only with reusable growing technologies is vertical farming truly sustainable.
We are on a mission to make vertical farming truly sustainable. Join us!
