The Controlled Environment Agriculture Global Association (CEAGA) represents companies who are dramatically changing the way the world’s food supply is grown. CEAGA seeks to promote the controlled environment agricultural sector by educating consumers, lawmakers, agencies, and the wholesale/retail industry as to the benefits of products grown in a controlled environment free of pesticides, insecticides, and chemical fertilizers. Our member companies are focused on reducing the agricultural carbon footprint using smart technology to reduce water, energy, and fuel consumption while supplying consumers with a healthier, better tasting product.
"CEA (controlled environment agriculture) optimizes indoor growing environments for crop production year round; combining the sciences of agriculture, engineering and technology to grow fresh food that is safe, nutritious and locally grown, free of chemicals.
These sustainable symbiotic indoor farm systems, hydroponics (growing plants in nutrient rich water solution) and aquaculture (fish farming) can be built, scaled and sustained in most environments 365 days a year, where weather and outdoor environments would limit or preclude fresh food food production.
Localizing fresh food near urban populations in the future is smart and efficient use of our natural resources. By integrating agriculture and engineering, finite resources such as water, arable land and energy can be conserved, while capital and labor create economic expansion for the local economies. Through public-private partnerships, CEA will make a difference; providing a measurable and impactful solution for the growing fresh, local and safe food, improving the health of our planet and the people we share this place called Earth." Kevan A. Fight, CEO & Chairman of CEA Fresh Farms
