We envision a world where saltwater resources are used to grow healthy food
sustainably and reduce food insecurity around the world.
We care about the planet just as much as we care about people. In turn, Red Sea Farms combines impact with innovation through saltwater-based agriculture products, systems, and services that are environmentally and economically sustainable and help support the nutritional needs of water-scarce populations.
Red Sea Farms offers products and services designed to help farmers grow food sustainably using fewer resources in water-scarce areas.
We sell organic, pesticide-free tomatoes and other produce grown sustainably in our own saltwater greenhouses and via partner farms.
We build new saltwater greenhouses as well as retrofit existing greenhouses with our patent-pending saltwater-cooling and Coretex control system technologies.
