The title of “Sustainable Debrecen” can be won by those companies that work to protect the environment of Debrecen with their developments.

The award went to this year to Green Drops Farm Kft. The company has developed an innovative solution that could play an important role in food supply in the future. Their so-called hydroponic equipment enables the growth of lettuce and herbs, a total of 150 species. The equipment can be set up on one square meter and has several advantages in terms of sustainability. The produced plants can be consumed without packaging and it contributes to the protection of arable land production since herbs can be produced without any land.

The development is a great alternative option that can ensure the food supply of the next generation, Ildikó Gréta Ildikó, Managing Director of Green Drops Farm Kft., pointed out.

The applications for the award must be submitted to the Environment Committee of Debrecen. The award was presented by Deputy Mayor Ákos Balázs to the company’s managing director.
