Producing food in a sustainable way is coming increasingly under the spotlight. That, along with the need for future food production security in a post-Brexit world,  is leading to the development of innovative forms of farming. 

An Edinburgh based firm, Shockingly Fresh, is seeking investment to develop five vertical farming sites across the UK, including one in Scotland with many more to follow. 

Hopefully ethical investors will get behind this initiative, providing a more efficient, eco-friendly alterative form of production and a level playing field for producers outwith the EU.
