Management Team

AgriFORCE’s management team is executing a strategic business approach planned to redefine the agricultural industry. This means that we have and continue to innovate in areas from the production of seedlings to cultivation to the establishment of cultivation and consumer-focused business relationships to branding and marketing.

We make evidence-based decisions with the goal of redefining industry standards, which have been in place and unquestioned in the agricultural sector for decades.

Our proprietary facility and growing system are designed to address the serious issues plaguing the agricultural industry – starting with hydroponics. Our business expertise provides the ability to implement our business strategy and redefine the agricultural industry with a focus on making it better for everyone involved from the grower to the retailer to, most importantly, the consumer.

We are starting with hydroponics but won’t stop there. The agriculture industry needs a revolution out of the industrial age and into the digital. AgriFORCE plans to be a leader in doing this.
