Spectral built its supply chain around existing 100+ year businesses, enabling us to hit the ground running in several complementary verticals, each of which contributes to our vision: local food production and economic development, food security and safety, and carbon reduction.
Local food production is necessary for carbon reduction, economic development, and Canadian food security
Our first 30 greenhouses will eliminate 48,800 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions, or 16.3 million km of trucking imports to Canada
Replacing imports with local produce creates new jobs and economic growth, and helps small farmers to grow their businesses
Local, sustainable production made available to mass market grocers provides healthier, tastier, fresher, and safer produce for all Canadians
Local food production protects Canada from climate change, pandemics, importing plant disease (E. coli, salmonella, listeria...), and supply chain interruptions
