A young startup formed by 3 fellow students from Shanghai's CEIBS. Friends for a decade now, they formed Hydra Biotech in 2016 to make a difference in the global food chain.
The 3 founders, Tristan, Jim and Steven, all believe passionately that food should be produced safely and that traditional methods are unable to match the productivity, convenience and safety of Controlled Environment Farming.
But the prevalent plant factories technologies are unable to compete economically. We were introduced to Vertical Farming by Dr Nate Storey and Lionel (Upgrown Farming Co), trialed it for a year (wildly successful) and Hydra Biotech was born!
Hydra Biotech now produces OEM and ODM farming hardware and provides research and development services for customers around the world.
With in-house expertise in agriculture and industrial automation and strategic partnerships with leading organizations, Hydra Biotech provides a one-stop shop for our customers.
From specialized lighting to highly effective growing systems, Hydra Biotech provides a range of standardized and bespoke products for our customers. Ask for our MiniFarm, IMR (Independent Mobile growRack) Systems, PFM (Prefabricated Farm Module) Systems and more!
Hydra Biotech's manufacturing base is in Shanghai, China. Tapping on China's immense industrial capacity and our Taiwanese Quality Control systems, we offer our customers an obvious value proposition.
ZipGrow is patented US technology from the University of Wyoming and marketed by Bright Agrotech Corp (www.brightagrotech.com), designed specially for high efficiency vertical crop production. Find out more at www.zipgrow.com

The distinctly passionate bunch at Hydra Biotech
Hydra PFMs marries the mature containerized housing technology with indoor farming. Expand your space with our unfolding farm module system! Download our brochure here.
Hydra's PFM system frees the container farmer from a single crop type per farm. Each ICC (Independent Climate Controlled) module can be set up differently from each other.
Imagine your farm having 4 ICCs, each growing a crop at different stages of it's production cycle. Or 4 different crops with customized nutrients and climate. Or mushrooms in one, tomatoes and cucumbers in another... The possibilities are limited only by your imagination...
As part of our product launch this 2017, the first 30 confirmed orders for our 2+1 (2 ICC Zipgrow + 1 GP) will enjoy the discounted rate of 115,000 USD for the entire set.
* Actual prices will depend on your specific needs but our packages are designed to let you start immediately.
** Customization services available. We are technology agnostic.

What do people think about us?
Technode Interview (2018)Despite growing demand for better food, China isn’t quite ready for indoor farming
One of the biggest costs of running indoor farms, Lim said, is electricity, which will add to the overall cost of the vegetables.
Plenty, a vertical farming startup backed by SoftBank Vision Fund, is one of the companies that Hydro Biotech sells equipment to.
