sacbee.com; By FusionPharm, Inc.: The developer of the patent pending PharmPods™ hydroponic cultivation system, today announced that due to the worldwide attention garnered by VertiFresh LLC, the company has received multiple inquires and has begun negotiations with several potential licensees for its PharmPods technology.
VertiFresh, a Denver-based urban farming company, began delivery of produce grown using PharmPods earlier this month and has been the subject of several widely distributed articles and natural products blogs. Due to the overwhelmingly positive customer response, VertiFresh is now in the process of expanding its Denver PharmPlex facility by adding 15 additional PharmPods.
FusionPharm, Inc. was organized to capitalize on opportunities present in the rapidly growing the $26 billion organic food industry.
FusionPharm’s primary focus is the development and deployment of the patent pending PharmPods™ advanced hydroponic cultivation systems. PharmPods are constructed from standard ISO steel shipping containers that are repurposed for use in indoor plant cultivation.
Using advanced LED lighting technology, cutting edge growing media and proprietary cultivation techniques, a single forty foot PharmPod is capable of growing more produce than one full acre of traditional agriculture in less than half the time using 90% less water than traditional agriculture and no harmful pesticides or herbicides.
