what we do

Vertité uses the latest in indoor farming technology to produce more with less. We achieve higher yields and better quality fruit than conventional methods thanks to our vertical hydroponic system and climate-controlled farm. 

healthier and tastier

Our strawberries are hand-picked at their ripest and tastiest. Unlike imported strawberries, which are often tainted with pesticides, our berries have zero pesticide residues.

ultra local and fresh

We cultivate on the island of Montreal, so our berries travel less than 20 km from our farm to you. Since we don’t have to worry about our fruit standing up to long-distance travel, we focus entirely on producing fresh fruit with amazing flavour.

more sustainable

We use 90% less water, land, and fertilizer compared to conventional agriculture, and we never ever use pesticides on our crop.

Our long-term goal is to help lead the next wave of agriculture. To us, that means sustainably growing healthier, tastier food closer to consumers. We believe cities of all sizes can grow their own healthy, delicious food with the help of indoor farming.
