Optimal is building technology for autonomous greenhouses by combining AI with the latest research in plant sciences. Its technology allows greenhouse operators to increase their yield and reliability of production, whilst reducing energy consumption. The world needs to more than double its capacity of high-tech greenhouses, but there is a shortage of skilled growers to operate them.

Optimal’s technology will allow new greenhouses to be built across the world, increasing global food production and food security, whilst helping with the drive to net zero emissions.

Optimal’s vision is for a world where there are autonomous greenhouses outside every city on Earth, delivering food that is grown for taste and not for transport. Optimal is rethinking the way food is produced to offer everyone delicious, affordable, climate-friendly produce.
