The Ritz-Carlton JBR, Dubai is partnering with Green Container Advanced Farming (GCAF) to launch a hyper-local on-site hydroponic farm, one of the first-ever vertical farms in the city.

With a focus on food security and regenerative farming practices, the city’s latest vertical farm at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai is approximately 40 square meters in size and completely sealed to ensure it is pesticide and herbicide-free. The dynamic farm grows crops yearround with daily harvests of up to ten kilograms of produce.

The freshly-grown selection of herbs includes Italian basil, Thai basil, and rosemary, amongst others, while coast-line lettuce, salanova mix and kale will also be grown. The produce will enhance the skillfully prepared dishes served at the property’s dining establishments including Blue Jade, Splendido, Amaseena and more.
