With its Renault Master Z.E., La Plucherie by InVivo delivers custom plant sprouts to 4 Parisian restaurants: LE 39V, Le Ducasse sur Seine, Nomicos and Spoon
To supply chefs with exceptionally flavourful live or same-day picked, untreated and hyper-local sprouts... with the help of a clean vehicle. This is the challenge taken up together by InVivo Food&Tech's La Plucherie and les Collectionneurs.
Micro-greens derived from eco-responsible agriculture
“We are proud and elated to launch this activity with these great Parisian chefs. Now we will be able to start with the most complex demand: extraordinary plants to satisfy high culinary requirements, grown with energy- and water-saving technologies. All this requires long development periods. But this is how we will be able to offer the controlled solutions of tomorrow to establish efficient food production in all major cities.” says Yves Christol, Managing Director of InVivo Food&Tech

“All the medical and nutrition experts agree that we need a more “flexitarian” diet, with more vegetable proteins and more fibre. Combine this with the fact that in just a few years there will be 7 billion of us on the planet inhabiting the urban landscape. We must find ways to produce higher quantities and a wider variety of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Climate-controlled urban agriculture is clearly a solution with multiple benefits. We are going to need to master these technologies and adapt our equipment. This partnership is a first step to a better understanding of urban agricultural methods, to improving nutritional quality and to reducing the ecological footprint of agriculture. It will be an essential counterpart to traditional agriculture for years to come.” concludes Yves Christol, CEO of InVivo Food&Tech.
