A 2300 square meter former semiconductor plant has become the world’s biggest indoor vegetable farm, thanks to Shigeru Shimamura and distinctive LED lights from General Electric.

The farm generates 10,000 heads of lettuce per day all while using less than one % of the water needed for a standard farm, and none of the pest or weather related dangers that come with growing outdoors. Produce waste is also slashed from 50 to only 10% as well.

Shimamura’s indoor farming company, Mirai, has partnered with GE and is seeking to set up similar operations in locations around the world, starting with Hong Kong and Russia.
