Revolutionizing Urban Agriculture with Origeen Greener Cities, a startup based in Mexico, is being noted in the agriculture industry with its innovative and versatile system called “VPOT” that is made entirely from recycled plastics, making it a sustainable option for urban farming. It is modular, scalable, and adaptable to different spaces, allowing for easy installation on walls and structures making it possible to grow fresh produce almost anywhere – indoors, outdoors, and vertically. The modular design allows for easy maintenance and can be customized to work with different irrigation methods, making it suitable for both soil-based farming and as a hydroponic system.
What sets VPOT apart from other systems on the market is its versatility and functionality, it can be used to grow food at homes, restaurants for commercial use like supermarkets, indoor farming, shipping containers and greenhouses. Giving multiple choices to produce fresh food in the cities, buildings, and other locations where space is limited and with minimal waste of water with their irrigation that recirculates water.
Origeen is the only company in Mexico and Latin America that produces its own modular system, giving them a unique advantage in the market. The commitment to sustainable agriculture practices and the production of fresh food in urban areas has garnered attention from around the world. The startup participated in the IndoorAg-Con in Las Vegas last year, receiving positive feedback from attendees and matched with the leaders of the industry like Hort Americas.
With the potential to scale to other countries, especially the United States, Origeen and VPOT could help mitigate climate change and contribute to food security by growing more in less space and limited spaces.
Origin Greener Cities has proven the effectiveness of VPOT by growing green leafy vegetables such as different varieties of lettuce, arugula, kale, basil, cilantro, and rainbow chard. The quality technology they use allows a more controlled production especially the grow lamps they use and recommend to their clients: GE Arize™ Life2 with PKB spectrum. They have noticed a great difference in the quality of their green leafy vegetables compared to other lamps. Texture, color and growth was highly improved. We have decided to recommend these lamps to our customers not just because it is a high quality product but also because the customer service provided by Hort Americas truly makes the difference in creating successful projects. We worked with Hort Americas to create the best light environment to the plants including light, quality, intensity and uniformity.
Origeen has a multidisciplinary team with equal gender that is deeply passionate about creating greener cities and empowering individual’s to produce their own food sustainably. With a strong belief in the transformative power of VPOT, envisions a future where more cities are adorned with lush greenery and where greenhouses equipped with VPOT systems are commonplace.
The CEO, Jessica Gómez is a visionary leader who is committed to drive the company’s mission forward. Her goal is to enable people to take control of their food production, fostering self-sufficiency and reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional agricultural practices.
