About

Les pieds sur le béton, les mains dans les plants, la tête dans les nuages : ça y est, il existe une solution pour des produits vraiment sains au coeur des villes. Fini les aliments qui viennent de très (très) loin, les variétés sans saveur et l’utilisation de produits pas clean pour les conserver. La quatrième Révolution Agricole sera urbaine, à deux pas de la maison !

Agricool a une mission : construire le système alimentaire de demain.

Leur solution : allier agronomie et technologie pour transformer des containers maritimes en paradis agricole au coeur des villes. A l’intérieur, ils recréent les conditions idéales de culture pour produire l’équivalent de 4000m2 de pleine terre dans 35m2, ultra-localement.

Où en sont-il ? Aujourd’hui, Agricool produit des fraises à Paris et à Dubaï, avec 0 pesticide, 90% moins d’eau et 100% d’énergies renouvelables. Demain, ils produiront une multitude d’autres cultures, partout dans le monde, même là où ça semble impossible. L’aventure Agricool a démarré en 2015 et ils sont aujourd’hui 80 à construire le système alimentaire de demain. Agricool a déjà levé 40 millions d’euros et est un des piliers européens de la #FoodTech et de l’#AgTech.

Job description

Our grandparents ate better than our parents and better than us. That’s crazy. Agricool turns this trend on its head: we’ll eat better than them all! We’re growing local, tasty and pesticide-free fruits and vegetables for everyone. For the moment, that means tasty and plump strawberries in Paris. Tomorrow, it will be a wide range of delicious fruits and vegetables everywhere on earth.

To achieve our goal, we’ve created a paradise for fruits and vegetables in recycled shipping containers. That means the best lighting, temperature, irrigation, and air quality. In just 35 m2 we can produce the same amount of food as 4000 m2 of traditional farmland. We do it with no pesticides, no transportation, and 100% renewable energy, and we sell our fruits through direct sales and supermarkets.

We started as 2 co-founders in 2015, and are now more than 75 people working everyday to shape a better food system ;-)
