You can grow herbs most of the year outdoors in Provence, but Capsum, a producer of high-end cosmetics, has just opened an indoor lab-farm
inside its manufacturing site in Marseille. To build this cutting-edge test kitchen for medical herbs, Capsum leaned on the technology and expertise of iFarm, which provided both hardware and software support for the lab, as well as design and consulting services.
The new lab will not only allow Capsum to experiment with various growth recipes for their ingredients in a controlled environment; it also gives them a year-round source of raw material that is guaranteed to meet their standards for ecologically pure, pesticide-free cosmetics. For iFarm, this represents a major addition to their portfolio of crops, proving their technology’s growing reach from salad greens and berries to cosmetics ingredients and medical herbs.
