Mission

We are on a mission to accelerate the transition into a sustainable food future. We believe this is crucial to feed an ever growing population with the limited resources of our planet.

We start by providing office farms that green the workspace, and enable employees to grow their own edible plants.

With that we want to create more joy and fun interactions in the office and bring the concept of urban farming closer to the people.

Story


It all started with a question.


„How might we feed 1,7 billion additional people on our planet in 2050, with the same limited resources we have today?“


To answer this question one of our founders traveled to the UK to explore the urban gardening movement. After visiting 16 different projects from urban gardening, to rooftop farms and large scale indoor farming companies, he came back with three key insights.

First of all, this challenge can only be solved if many people collaboratively work towards the same goal. He also realized that urban gardens are great for community building and educating people about food, but not to feed large amounts of people. However, large scale indoor farms are exactly the opposite. They  produce food efficiently but do not contribute to community building or educating people. The original idea was to bridge that gap.
After the initial start as a student project, Susteyn was born. 

Office Farms are efficient in producing food, while offering the community aspect.

First, this challenge can only be solved if many people collaboratively work towards the same goal. He also realized that urban gardens are great for community building and educating people about food, but not so to actually feed large amounts of people. However, large sclae indoor farms are exactly the opposite, good at producing food efficiently but not so good about community building or educating people. The original idea was to bridge that gab.

Office Farms are efficient in producing food, while offering the community aspect and benfits like a greener office.
