GrowUp Farms

Careers at GrowUp Farms

We bring customers food that doesn’t cost the earth.

We’re a leading UK vertical farming company who have spent almost a decade growing salads at three vertical farms, bringing customers restaurant-quality leafy greens that stay fresher for longer. Salads are just the tip of the iceberg – our future is more farms, more crops, and the technology to make vertical farming the norm.

We have developed industry-leading technology integrated with renewable energy to drive down the costs and carbon footprint of vertical farming, while cutting down on food waste in the supply chain and at home. Our fourth farm, currently under construction in Sandwich, Kent, is expected to begin delivering its first harvest of ready-to-eat salad leaves to U.K. supermarket shelves in the 22/23 winter season.

We’re passionate about getting people to rethink their salads and delivering healthy, affordable, British-grown food to more customers, with a lighter environmental footprint and a more resilient year-round supply chain. We bring purpose and impact to the fresh produce category and expect a transformational impact over the next decade as we add in new crops.

We are a fast-growing dynamic team, who care passionately about what we’re doing. We’re interested in people who want to help turn food production on its head, who are naturally entrepreneurial, commercial and restless to make it happen.
