Can Smartkas feed 10 billion people by 2050?

By: Get News

It is, just not with the current food systems. In order to achieve this, agricultural production needs to be much more sustainable.

There are two major problems that are negatively affecting the four pillars of food security; overpopulation and climate change. The four pillars of food security are:

Availability: Current field farming practices are no longer a viable and sustainable method of food production, this leads to reduced crop yields and reduced food quality.

Access: Crop yield reductions and limitations on the ability to obtain food lead to price increases and spikes.

Utilisation: Pesticides contaminate water. As a result, trace elements of contaminated water use can already be found on field grown fruits and vegetables, leading to diarrhoeal illnesses. A threat not exclusive to developing countries.

Stability: There is a growing instability of food supply due to the increased frequency of extreme events. As a result, crop failure is already contributing to migration and conflict.

SMARTKAS seeks to eradicate the food problems in the world and on their journey for doing so they provide Food Security As A Service.

The solution of SMARTKAS is that food and water should be a basic human right. In order for the company to achieve that, they aim to tackle these issues:

Availability: SMARTKAS is able to predict crop yields and guarantee the quality of the fruits and vegetables, making the food production process much more sustainable.

Access: By using SMARTKAS’s solution the availability of food is guaranteed, as a result prices remain stable all year round.

Utilisation: The SMARTKAS technology does not involve pesticides, so water does not get contaminated. As a matter of fact, the system is 95% water positive.

Stability: SMARTKAS offers (seasonal) products all year round because the hermetically closed environment is not dependent on climatic conditions.

SMARTKAS’s solution is simple: they design, build, own and operate Smart Farms.
