The company said it is working with an undisclosed information technology partner in the Middle East.

According to the current plan, the company will grow and sell Romaine lettuce in Abu Dhabi with Planty Cube. Depending on the local market response, the type of greens will be diversified while the production volume of greens will rise, n.thing said.

Planty Cube became operational in 2018, four years after n.thing was founded in 2014. The startup currently runs a farming facility with a production capacity of 30 tons each year in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province.
