Growtainer - The Portable Production Facility of the Future | The Production Facility of the Future
The Growtainer is a high density farm built inside an insulated, recycled shipping container. It is mobile, agile and its open framework design means that each unit can be continually improved as technology advances. Using our specially designed growrack system, LED lighting technology and specially engineered hydroponics the Growtainer offers a mobile platform to deliver fresh produce anywhere, anytime.

The Portable Production Facility of the Future

A Growtainer™ container (patent pending) is a highly engineered modular and mobile vertical production environment custom built for a wide variety of crops, botanical products and business models.


Available anywhere in the world, we design and modify 20’, 40’ or 45’ insulated shipping containers to provide the optimum controlled vertical environment for growing a wide range of horticultural, floriculture and agricultural products in all environments and climates. In addition to leafy greens, herbs and other shallow root crops A Growtainer™ container can produce almost any Botanical Product used in industry: Pharmaceuticals, Nutritional Supplements, Flavors, Fragrances and more.


Our team consists of world class Botanists and Plant Physiologists who can determine the optimum environment for your product and then we develop your own unique state of the art environment to produce that product.  We work with our global network of experts in Engineering, LED Lighting, Irrigation Systems, Control Systems, Climate and Environmental applications and more. Every system we design and build is as unique as the product it’s been developed for. We do not offer a “one size fits all” solution.  Even our proprietary Growrack™ system can be built to your specifications.


The results are a significantly higher yield in a shorter time than all conventional production methods.  Or the result is the sustainable production of a product that has traditionally been problematic for one reason or another.  Need an endangered product? Want to find a more sustainable solution?   The potential possibilities and benefits are unlimited. With a Growtainer™ container, it is now possible to grow almost anything, almost anywhere, sustainably!


Growtainer™ containers are completely customizable, mobile and stackable.  They can be installed in your building, on your factory roof or in your parking lot. If you don’t want a container, we can build a dedicated space for you. We’ve built Growtainer™ containers with multiple climate and environmentally controlled production chambers for research or multiple crop production as well as single chamber units. We’ve even built a 53’ Growtainer™ container for a major US Supermarket chain for their LOCAL production initiative.  We can build units for seed germination, rooting cuttings and grafts or spike initiation in Orchids or tissue culture. We even build a crop specific 20’ Growtainer™ specifically for the young inexperienced farmer with ongoing support, available financing and a reasonable ROI. Contact us now for more information.

Research at Texas A&M Agrilife

Researchers use Growtainer™ containers, capable of unlimited simultaneous experiments, to find better ways of plant production in closed environments, with plants that need less water and less light, all aspects that are very important to solving the food security problems around the world. This video stream is live from a research container on site at Texas A&M Agrilife Center.
