Starting 2021 Off with 3 Prestigious Industry Awards
BIG INNOVATION AWARDS
AeroFarms receives the prestigious annual BIG Innovation Award honor! AeroFarms is awarded this honor in the Technology category and is the only agtech/agriculture company to make this distinguished list of awardees.
The BIG Innovation Awards recognize those organizations and people who bring new ideas to life. Whether that idea is big or small, these ideas change the way we experience the world. Unlike other programs, nominations are judged by recognizable leaders, not editors or writers with limited business experience. Nominations are individually scored by a panel of experts, hand selected their advisory panel and employees:
“Innovation is now critical for our civilization to progress,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are honored to award so many executives, companies and products the BIG Innovation award this year. Each person, company, and product has made tremendous strides at improving the lives of their community.”
We are also excited to have won the Circular Economy Innovation of the Year from the EDIE Sustainability Leaders Awards.
Established in 2007, EDIE’s Sustainability Leaders Awards highlight and recognize forward-thinking businesses and ambitious business professionals who go above and beyond in achieving environmental objectives and who deliver transformational change in society.
The Circular Economy Innovation of the Year award highlights the critical ways in which AeroFarms is addressing the global food crisis by building, owning and operating cutting-edge indoor vertical farms in the US and all over the world.
“By embedding sustainability into all that we do, from our operations to our business model to our final product, we aim to champion true transformational innovation for the agricultural industry,” says AeroFarms Co-Founder & CEO David Rosenberg. “We are proud to be recognized by EDIE as a leader in sustainability and innovation. We also know that truly moving the needle on global sustainability cannot be accomplished by one company alone, and we applaud the many other companies recognized for their impact.”
