Herbeos Limited is seeking to become the UK’s leading producer of herbs supplying to the food processing sector and wholesale. The facility proposed uses vertical production and a greenhouse combination for growing on moving conveyor belts. This will allow Herbeos to produce fresh high-quality herbs all year round to retail customers.
The vertical farm is a fully integrated food processing and production facility that combines vertical LED production with the latest glasshouse technology. The facility will have end to end production line that can take a food product from seed through to end-product.
Our plans for Herbeos Ltd.
Herbeos has identified the market for potted and cut packed herbs mainly coriander as its primary target market. Coriander currently ranks number 1 in the UK herb market based on sales of retail packs with over 23,733,000 sold annually. The company is seeking to operate a vertical food production facility with glass house growing and become a major player in the supply of both cut and pot herbs.
The company’s overall development aim is to secure a site to build, own and operate a facility. Opening and running this facility will allow the company to grow and develop in the following ways:
- Allow the company to produce 340,000 kg of produce per year, with a typical market sales value per annum of £2.5m.
- Build typical annual supply chain contracts worth an estimated value of £600,000
- Recruit a core team of 10 people to run the facility on a day to day basis, along with a further team of 10 that manage and sell the end produce.
- Leaders in producing a fully 100% UK grown product.
