The plan to grow strawberries inside shipping containers


Agricool is using former shipping containers to grow strawberries in Paris.

Strawberries are being grown in recycled shipping containers in a northern Paris suburb as part of a project to produce more fruit and vegetables in cities.

The containers are able to produce strawberries at greater density than growing them in a field, explains Agricool co-founder Guillaume Fourdinier – the equivalent of 4,000 sq m (43,055 sq ft) can be grown in 30 sq m, he adds.
