Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX) is ideally situated to help meet the needs of the new U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement Program (“LFPA”), which sets out to build a new and more equitable food system. The LFPA is intended to enable “state, tribal and local entities to purchase food more efficiently from local producers and invest in infrastructure that enables partner organizations to reach underserved communities more effectively,” a recent article reads. “According to Advanced Container Technologies, its GrowPods – modular hydroponic greenhouses – could become a valuable tool in this effort to build more resilient local and regional food production capabilities. ‘With GrowPods, cultivation can be moved directly into the areas where food is needed,’ the company noted. ‘Additionally, locating the pods nearer to the point of consumption allows food to be harvested at its peak nutritional value and greatly reduces the carbon and environmental impact of the nation’s current food chain, which relies on trucks carrying mass quantities of produce across the country.’ GrowPods offer a controlled environment with major advantages for the production of high-value crops. The ability to grow crops year-round while cultivating in a smaller footprint using less resources makes the systems particularly well suited for programs such as the LFPA.”
