CannabisNewsBreaks – Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (ACTX) CEO, Inventor of GrowPods Share Insight on the Future of Farming

Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX) was featured in a recent episode of “Gamechangers LIVE.” Doug Heldoorn, CEO of ACTX, the exclusive U.S. distributor of GrowPods — self-contained, hydroponic “micro-farms,” and Shannon Illingworth, the inventor of GrowPods, joined the podcast to discuss the future of farming in America and the world. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, the global food supply is in critical condition. The Guardian further projects that the world’s population is expected to reach nearly 10 billion by 2050 and will require a 70% increase in global food production but speculates today’s food systems are not ready and that the answer to mounting challenges may be in hydroponic or vertical farming. “GrowPods can give traditional farmers a niche to grow high-quality produce year-round,” Illingworth said in the interview with Sergio Tigera, host of Gamechangers LIVE. “Because GrowPods can be located virtually anywhere, food can quickly go from farm to the table, dramatically reducing transportation time, so food stays fresh, healthy and nutritious.”
