the InvertiGro story

Co-founders Ben Lee and Paul Millett, established InvertiGro in 2017 with the mission to

“feed the world the smarter way”

Essentially, to grow more, with less:


- Reliably higher yields of tastier

and more nutritious fresh produce

- With less water, land and waste;

fewer food miles and packaging;

- No herbicides or pesticides;

- Independent of climate extremes

and supply-chain disruptions.


At the time of conception, indoor vertical farming was (and in many respects still is) in its infancy. The need for, and benefits of, indoor vertical farming were evident .. however the solutions were often debated or dismissed due to their high cost of capital, high operating costs and their complexity to establish and optimise. So, rather than simply be a me-too, InvertiGro set out to innovate solutions that address the issues commonly associated with indoor farming.

The InvertiGro team now brings together a multi-disciplined collection of individuals with commercial and educational experience as diverse as their career paths (including: agronomy and accounting, software and supply chains, engineering and entrepreneuring).


We are modern-farmers in the true sense of the word; innovating to design solutions that will enable others (around the globe .. and potentially elsewhere!) to sustainably and profitably deliver fresh, nutritious, herbicide and pesticide-free produce.


InvertriGro is proud to now be able to offer integrated indoor vertical farming systems that are affordable (cost efficient to set up and resource efficient to operate), modular (to be able to scale production quickly as business demands), flexible (allowing users to easily switch between crops as needed) and smart (fully supported and simple to operate without the need for specialist know-how).
