At Bowery, we dream of a world where agriculture gives back more to the people and planet than it takes.
It’s time to reimagine farming from the ground up
Did you know that by 2050, we’ll need to produce 70% more food to feed an estimated world population of 10 billion? As it currently stands, our agricultural system cannot sustainably feed that many people, most of whom will be living in urban areas. To feed the future, farming needs to aim higher.
Our indoor farms address global challenges by thinking community-first:
Agriculture uses 70% of the world’s freshwater.
Recycle and filter water to reduce consumption.
Over 40 years, we’ve lost 30% of the world’s arable land due to unsustainable farming practices.
Transform unused industrial spaces into community-first farms.
In the field, seeds are largely selected for yield, transportation, and chemical resistance.
Select non-GMO seeds that deliver on aroma, texture, and taste.
Seventy percent of U.S. produce has traces of pesticides.
Grow protected produce with zero pesticides.
The precarious global food supply chain is susceptible to environmental and economic disruption.
Create indoor, vertically integrated farming that grows 365 days a year, closer to the point of consumption.
Leafy greens are responsible for a vast majority of E. coli-related outbreaks in the U.S.
Grow produce defiantly free from pollutants and fully traceable seed to store.
In 2018, 11.1% of U.S. households were food insecure.
Democratize access to fresh, locally grown food in our communities.
Do more with less
At Bowery, we know there’s always room for improvement. That’s why we’re constantly on a pursuit to find ways to do more with less.
Our newest farm in Bethlehem, PA features pioneering sustainability enhancements. The farm is powered by 100% renewable energy and features 15% more efficient LED lighting. A state-of-the-art water recapture and filtration system has been custom-built to harness even the water that is transpired from the plants, and ensure the highest-quality food safety standards.
Our latest packaging uses 45% less plastic thanks to a flexible peel-and-reseal top. While this is an important step in our packaging journey, we’re far from done as we will continue to innovate toward a more sustainable future. READ MORE
