MILLIS — FreshBox Farms CEO Sonia Lo was among the panelists at VERGE 16, exploring how innovation can improve food safety and provide for those in need.
VERGE 16 is a global event series focusing on the technologies and systems that accelerate sustainability solutions. The Sept. 19-22 conference was held in Santa Clara, California.
Lo has overseen the use of technologies to create fresh produce. FreshBox Farms uses no soil, little water, LED lighting and a nutrient mix created by plant scientists on staff. A FreshBox also produces the equivalent of 2 to 19 acres worth of food, in a 320 square-foot growing space.
