Welcome to our blog, we will keep this updated every time we have some news for you!

Menta Trade Fair

Menta Trade Fair 2015Just in case you were wondering what, exactly, all of the fuss was about, we are appearing at the Menta Trade Fair at the Apex Centre in Bury St Edmunds this wednesday the 30th September.

We will be on stand number B38 on the new business balcony and will be demonstrating some new tech and giving vouchers away too!

We will have some plants to show but the fish will not be making an appearance as it is only a one day show and they really don't appreciate the travelling.

I hope to see you there, just as a heads up, there is a quiet drinks session in the top bar after the show closes, but don't tell anyone!

World Expo 2015

Aponic was one of the businesses picked to represent the UK at the World Expo 2015 in Milan! This meant that we were treated to a few days in Milan during the Agritech week to present our products to the International World Expo delegates.Aponic Vertical Soilless Growing

It was such a privilige and we met some great people to boot, not only did we get invites from other countries to attend trade missions to their countries, but we realised that by collaborating with other businesses that were presenting at the Expo, we can help each other to create efficient food production facilities all over the world.

Many thanks to the UKTI for our invite and we hope to see you all again on our adventures into new places!

Installation at BT Innovation Centre

Installation at BT Innovation Centre

Today we installed a small system in BT's Adastral Park Innovation Showcase, it is an indoor system that runs under an LED grow light system. As it is a self contained system, all they have to do is make sure the water is topped up and add some nutrient solution every two weeks to keep the plants thriving. We planted this system with basil and mint as the combination of the two aromas fills the room it is in a treat.

While I was installing it, Etholle George from BBC Radio Suffolk was recording for her show and popped in to see how I was doing. It was lovely to see her again and I did a cheeky plug for Aponic in a mini interview with her.

Yikes that is bright!

We are working on our microprocessor control unit that will report the nutrient levels, temperatures and humidities to a phone app so that you can keep an eye on your grow tubes when you are at work or on holiday. In this case it will output the results to a big screen next to the grow tubes in the innovation centre.
