To provide a perfect year-round growing environment for tomatoes, our engineers installed more than 1,000 energy-efficient LED lights specially designed for horticultural use.
Designed to turn on automatically when there is a lack of natural light, Flavourfresh can now produce thousands more home-grown tomatoes between November and February, outside the natural growing season.
Thanks to our help and expertise, the sophisticated lighting set-up is powered by a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system to improve energy efficiency and minimise carbon emissions.
From order to being fully operational, we completed this project in just eight weeks – allowing Flavourfresh to meet their national customer’s order demands.
The benefits for our client:
Since opening in 1997, Flavourfresh has specialised in growing strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and tomatoes under 17.3 hectares of glass across four sites.
This investment means they now operate a year-round tomato growing facility, enjoys bigger and better-quality yields that have driven up profitability.
Charmay Prout, Managing Director at Flavourfresh, said: "We chose CambridgeHOK based on their technical expertise and their ability to deliver the project to the standard we required. From start to finish, the level of support and professionalism was incredible.”
