OVATA is sustainable on various processes within the organization. We continue to innovate through data, learning from other sectors and experimenting. Growing in harmony with nature is important, we want our pure succulents to grow in a natural environment and biologically controlled.

 

This results in shiny plants with a strong character. This makes us happy, but more importantly, also the consumer.

 

Growing better, respecting the enviroment

Water Life Cylce

One of the innovations is a 100% closed water system called ‘Water Life Cycle’.Two worlds are combined in this system:

The Japanese koi carp industry that use filters, aeration and movement sewage treatment to clean the water.

There is also a simulated waterfall at OVATA. The waterfall is a natural cleaning mechanism and ends in the biofilter. The bacteria in the lava eat harmful bacteria, virus and fungi. ‘The good eats the bad’. This system makes the water vital and contributes to healthy, strong and happy succulents.

Data-driven cultivation

Data is continuously collected and analyzed during our cultivation process. With these data, we get insights into how the greenhouse conditions influence the growth of our pure succulents.

Growing with data supports our growers in their work. Another benefit is that we are more efficient and durable with resources as water, energy and plant protection products. Moreover, we achieve higher production quality with the help of data.

At the end, using data results in vital pure succulents with beautiful intense colors. That makes the customers, and us, happy!
