Crate to Plate

25 November 2020

Bringing sustainable, local production of leafy greens to urban communities, Crate to Plate is a London-based urban farming business – harnessing state-of-the-art hydroponic technology and eco-friendly innovation – to grow the freshest possible produce, delivered straight to your door. 

You can now buy Crate to Plate’s fresh leafy greens (including lettuce, rocket, kale, herbs, and more) by visiting shop.cratetoplate.farm. All the produce is harvested shortly before being delivered straight to your door. Their boxes contain a variety of the highest quality, locally grown and freshly picked produce, all from their first urban farm in London’s Canary Wharf. There are a number of ‘farm-to-table’ boxes to choose from, filled with a selection of fresh leafy greens and herbs that varies each week according to what is ready for harvest. This ensures that your box will always contain the freshest possible greens. Our boxes range from £6 to £28 depending on the selection and quantity, with no delivery charge on orders of £15 or more.

Hydroponic vertical farming has proven to have essential advantages over traditional farming methods, allowing Crate to Plate to grow locally in urban environments. This approach uses minimal water (95% less than farming with soil), with little space required. As a result, the produce is super fresh, with consistent quality, and has the highest possible nutrient value – always completely free of pesticides and toxic chemicals, and with zero carbon footprint in transporting from farm to customer. 

Crate to Plate is bringing this beneficial technology and ethos to new urban markets, contributing to a more sustainable future with higher food security. At the moment we are only able to delivery in Zones 1 - 3 in London, but in the next 6 months we will be setting up new farms in other parts of London and the UK. Crate to Plate is also able to delivery to restaurants and offices across the city. www.cratetoplate.farm
