Greenhouses are sprouting up in China's megacities
LOCATION: Shanghai, China
Food safety is an issue driving the change
Many young Chinese prefer produce grown in controlled environments
(Song Xiaoyu, Shanghai resident) "Though its price is higher, if you have high demands for your life, you can still choose it. After all, many vegetables are tainted by contamination now."
This facility by FoodVentures harvested their first batch in May
(Dirk Aleven, FoodVentures Director) "We want to get rid of transportations and we want to get rid of the long logistics because we are not sure if it always works. So localising it as much as possible is the only answer."
