Vertical farming company Plenty is introducing Tigris as a next-gen future farm that is set on creating produce with "the best possible flavor" in a way that's highly efficient and clean. As the eco-friendly vertical farm solution creates room for precise controls over climate and light, Plenty notes that it has the potential to generate crops that have never before been grown for grocery stores, as it does not depend on a specific climate or season.

The sustainable farming system uses just 1% of the land and 5% of the water as compared to a regular outdoor farm. This is particularly noteworthy, as CEO and co-founder of Plenty Matt Barnard describes that "The globe can grow only one-third of the fruits and vegetables required to provide people with a healthy diet, and those fruits and vegetables are largely available only to the affluent or people who live near a Mediterranean climate."
