Market key trends

The growing demand for organic foods free from chemicals among health-conscious consumers has significantly boosted greenhouse produce farming. Organic foods are perceived to offer added nutritional and health benefits over conventionally grown foods. Greenhouse cultivation allows the precise regulation of growing conditions required for organic farming without the use of pesticides and fertilizers. This has encouraged many farmers to adopt greenhouse techniques to meet the rising demand for organic fruits and vegetables.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: The greenhouse produce market offers a controlled environment for growing crops which increases yields and allows year-round production. This protects crops from harsh weather conditions and pests.
