- Joint Venture with Well Established Media & Music Company Life Leaf Gardens and Associated Equipment Purchase of 450 Vertical Towers
On August 31st GMEV announced that its Foundation Farms subsidiary has issued the equipment purchase order for a 450 tower vertical farm to be located in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Gross margin is expected to be $445,000 per year or 98% of sales. A new business plan, prepared by an independent third party, confirms previous profit projections. The joint venture is expected to generate a net profit of $113,000 per year or 25% of sales and payback on capital is expected to be achieved within the first two years of operation. These numbers are based on the actual long-term experience of GMEV technology suppliers with further confirmation from the Company’s own experience over the past four months with its first Red Deer area vertical farm.
GMEV also introduced its new joint venture partner – Life Leaf Gardens. The main principals of Life Leaf Gardens, Bobby James and Christina Sing, have been a prolific video marketing team and band for over 17 years. They have been affiliated with countless corporate entities through video production, show development, soundtrack composition, and performance. After visiting the GMEV Red Deer area facility they were captured by a vision, now documented in their own media presentation-“use locally grown produce to cement ourselves as a trusted food source, building a lifestyle retail brand that provides nutritious food and local sustainability”. Under the terms of the joint venture agreement, Life Leaf Gardens is committed to the purchase of 100% of the products from the Abbotsford operation; they have also offered the same commitment for all future GMEV Foundation Farms facilities throughout North America.
When asked to provide comments on this latest news, Ed Kroeker, CEO of GMEV Foundation Farms stated, “We are extremely excited about this new launch. We had great expectations when we launched our first vertical farm earlier this year; those expectations were exceeded. Now we are capitalizing on our success to build a second project that has five times the revenue capacity of this first vertical farm. Simultaneously, we are privileged to welcome a high profile joint venture partner that shares our vision and carries the tools to get our message out to the whole world. One of their own media statements summarizes their approach-‘We believe that every business, product and personality is a manifestation of someone’s heart and soul. We take pride in showcasing these dreams through sight and sound, so they can be shared with the world. Our specialty is creating video and audio alongside one another so that your vision has emotional, resounding effects.”
- GMEV Foundation Farms Reports a Second Harvest is Currently Underway
On July 15th GMEV subsidiary Foundation Farms, Corp. reported that the second harvest is currently underway at the company’s E-ROOTS CENTRE located in the Red Deer, Alberta area. Following an overwhelming positive response from customers who purchased the first crop last month, word is spreading throughout the surrounding communities and this second GMEV crop is already sold even before harvesting has been completed. Consumers have been delighted with the “no blemishes” produce and GMEV had numerous reports that the flavors and palatability of the vegetable greens are, “much better than anything that we have ever purchased at local supermarkets.”
In response to the market demand, GMEV has expanded from an assortment of six basic leafy greens and herbs in the first crop to a total of 14 leafy greens and herbs, two fruits (strawberries and cayenne peppers), and four varieties of edible flowers in this second crop. GMEV management and on-site staff also report very successful functioning of the E-ROOTS system with minimal labor input.
There is a lot of attention paid to tangible benefits of vertical farming including environmental sustainability, low water useage, ability to convert urban waste spaces to food production, and reduction of food transportation logistics. The GMEV E-ROOTS CENTRES are demonstrating that we can produce plant-based food products whose culinary qualities surpass anything currently available in conventional food markets. GMEV plans to have the same impact on the plant-based food market as angus-beef branding has had on the red meat market. This will soon become even more evident as GEMV is getting ready to announce several new joint ventures.
- GMEV Subsidiary Foundation Farms Reports On-Target First Harvest
On June 3rd GMEV reported a successful on-target first harvest at the company’s E-ROOTS CENTRE located in the Red Deer, Alberta area. GMEV management commented that the crop grew and matured even faster than expected using the E-ROOTS system. From seed to harvest took only 21 days. Market acceptance of the final products has been overwhelmingly positive with consumers reporting exceptional quality and taste.
Plans are underway to double the production capacity of the existing Red Deer area vertical farm facility. GMEV management has reported that the experience with this first crop has already confirmed earlier projections that the company’s capital cost recovery on each E-ROOTS Centres is as short as six months. Word of this success is spreading and as a result GMEV is getting serious joint venture partnership enquiries from Minneapolis, New York, Toronto, and the Caribbean.
A recent Ontario Greenbelt Foundation report indicated that current global investment in vertical farms is estimated at US$3.1 billion with about a third of that taking place in North America. In the GMEV Foundation Farms joint venture business model, the Company’s own capital requirements are minimal. Using the language of agriculture, GMEV seed for each project is the E-ROOTS technology and operating expertise, the joint venture partner seeds the capital requirements and both parties reap a bountiful harvest as demonstrated by the quick capital cost recovery.
- GMEV Announces Production of First Leafy Greens Crop
On May 6th GMEV announced that production of the first crop of leafy greens had begun in the company’s Red Deer area plant. Installation and commissioning of facilities was completed right on schedule. This is a reflection of the accelerated crop growth that takes place on each GMEV E-ROOTS vertical farm.
To celebrate the launch of this new phase in the company’s evolution, GMEV management has also launched a new website- foundationfarms2021.com. The new site provides enough information for visitors to catch the vision and there is even a portal for inviting joint venture farm partners into the business of building and operating E-ROOTS CENTRES around the world.
Also, GMEV E-ROOTS CENTRES will buy other locally grown food products from farmers wholesale and then package, market, and distribute the locally grown food products to corporations, families, schools, restaurants, caterers, sports teams, and stores, maintaining economic growth in the community. These E-ROOTS CENTRES will develop health food brands utilizing local produce to promote nutritious diets. Mechanisms for dispatch and delivery logistics are included.
