THE BOX is the company’s first green or germination nursery constructed in a second hand 40ft. highly insulated shipping container designed to produce microgreens in a sustainable manner.
The company has two general aims. First, to locally market and sale microgreens in the Tampa Bay Area and, second, to market and sale globally eco-system BOXES, tailor made to sustainably produce, anywhere in the world, microgreens, herbs and mushrooms.
Our production takes place in a controlled ecosystem, named THE BOX, constructed inside a highly insulated 40ft. shipping containers we built ourselves. Based, on our experience and expertise on global sustainability and by following sustainable development principles (actually 10 of the 17 goals established by United Nations) we construct for our company use and for customers around the world sustainable green nurseries to produce microgreens, herbs and mushrooms.
These production facilities are tailor made, following customer requirements and the locations where they are put into operation. Besides the unit, we deliver the know-how to operate it and the system to produce the above-mentioned products.
The first BOX is already in operation in the Tampa Bay Area (Ruskin) with a monthly capacity of around 700 microgreen growing trays. The production aims to maximize yield and food quality in a rather small space and minimize energy and
fresh water use.
A second BOX is under construction near Tampa (Oldsmar) and suitable for the sustainable production of mushrooms.
