Kalera is making some pretty big waves across the country.
In 2020 alone, the advanced indoor vertical farming operation opened a new indoor farm in Orlando, Florida, where the group is based and announced expansion into Houston, Texas, Atlanta, Georgia, and Denver, Colorado, all of which are set to open in 2021.
The planned Houston facility will enter the market as the largest indoor farm in the state of Texas, while the Atlanta grow will reportedly have the highest production volume of any vertical farm in the southeast.
We touched base with Dr. Cristian Toma, Kalera’s founder and chief science officer (CSO), to get some details on the new facility and what the team is up to lately.
