CannabisNewsBreaks – Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (ACTX) GrowPods Can Eliminate Food Deserts Virtually Anywhere

Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX), the exclusive U.S. distributor of self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called GrowPods, is working to provide viable ways for communities to grow food where it is needed most. The ability to eradicate “food deserts” is a powerful benefit of ACTX’s GrowPods; food deserts are defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as an area with no ready access to a store with fresh and nutritious food options within one mile for urban areas and 10 miles or more from the nearest market for rural America. GrowPods are portable, controlled-environment container farms that grow ultra-clean, healthy food wherever it is needed. Unfortunately, food deserts are not few and far between; “Move for Hunger” estimates that more than 23 million people live in areas that qualify as food deserts. According to the announcement, GrowPods can produce approximately an acre of food in a transportable, scalable, automated system virtually anywhere. “GrowPods allow communities to cultivate ultra-healthy food, year-round,” said ACTX CEO Doug Heldoorn in the press release. “These highly efficient systems are simple to operate and offer a real chance at improving health in hard-hit areas.”
