Delbros Group Turned Over 8 Vertical Farm Towers to Navotas City

Delbros Group recently turned over an additional eight vertical farm towers to Navotas City. The farming solution units are from Good Greens & Co., which is a part of Delgado Brothers (Delbros) Group. This expands the project into a 12-tower urban vertical farm since its launch less than a year. 

The project is in partnership with the Navotas City Council and the Boy Scout of the Philippines (BSP). It is considered to be the tallest in Metro Manila and aims to continue cultivating a sufficient and self-sustainable food source as restrictions are still placed for food transportation due to the current pandemic situation. 

Through these 700 square-meter vertical farm towers, green produce is grown indoors which will be made readily-available to the surrounding communities of Navotas. This will also yield higher production of crops as they are not affected by unfavorable weather conditions. It will also provide a more efficient way of producing crops as it needs less land compared to traditional farming. 

"Through this innovation, we can ensure food security by planting crops even in highly urbanized areas like Navotas which will greatly benefit its citizens," said Mr. Glenn Panganiban, National Director for Urban Agriculture. 

These vertical farm towers will also provide job opportunities for the surrounding communities as it opens a possible career in the field of plant health, horticulture, food safety, integrated pest management, production and packing, among others. 

With vertical tower farms, food crops grown in computer-monitored sanitary buildings offer little risk of contamination by bacteria. These towers will also produce much cleaners air for the community as each can act as a greenland which absorbs carbon dioxide and contaminants in the air. 

"Vertical farm towers are viable solution to address existing agriculture challenges such as farmland fatigue, pesticide run-off, and greenhouse gas emissions. We see this model as a sustainable and viable model that urban areas can adopt, and it holds promise for locally grown and sustainable produce," said Simon Villalon, President of Good Greens & Co.

With the company's continued research in vertical farming, GGC continues to be a pioneer in agriculture and logistics innovation as it plans to become the largest manufacturer of leafy greens in the Philippines. The company aims to produce vertical towers which will yield from an initial 4,000 plants to 10,000 plants to match the market demands and contribute to community and national development while delivering the highest levels of product quality and safety.
