By 2050, humanity needs a 67 per cent increase in food production. With decreasing fertile land and limited water, current agriculture methods are unable to keep up.

G2V Optics is preparing for the future. They developed a technology that brings the sun inside perfectly replacing sunlight from anywhere in the world.

Being a part of the controlled environmental agriculture solution means providing plants the required sunlight while maximizing yield, flavour and crop value.

“Shared work spaces are very common, but the opportunity to get high quality-coaching is much rarer and incredibly valuable.”

Michael Taschuk, founder & chief technology officer, G2V.
