3 AFFINOR: Transformation to a higher order 3

4 A perfect storm has formed to make food security one of the preeminent challenges facing humankind.... the dramatic rise in global food prices poses a threat to global food and nutrition security. - The High Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis and the World Health Organization 4

5 Mission Statement Affinor Growers (AFI) is a biotechnology company that is committed to solving the world s food security problems with proprietary growing and cultivating systems capable of producing fresh, non-gmo delicious foods and nutraceutical / medicinal foods without pesticides or dangerous chemicals with near zero water waste. Globalization of Growing with Vertical Farms Efficient production utilizing minimum space and a quick growth system yielding maximum production per square foot

6 6

7 The Dark Side of Strawberries Testing on US grown strawberries found 54 different pesticide residues: 9 known Cancer causing carcinogens 24 suspected Hormone disruptors 11 Neurotoxins 12 Developmental or reproductive toxins 19 honeybee toxins. Plus... Fungicides, captan and pyraclostrobin 7

8 OPPORTUNITY Affinor s mission is to industrialize and automate a profitable system to mass-produce nutrient-rich foods, free of pesticides and chemicals. "I sampled a 53 gram fully vine-ripened strawberry produced by Affinor, and it was better than another strawberry I have ever tasted, including our local summer berries." - Rick Easthom, former Manager of Retail Development for Choices Markets/Financial Press 8

9 OPPORTUNITY Affinor s mission is to industrialize and automate a profitable system to mass produce nutrient-rich foods, free of pesticides and chemicals. Affinor is ready to introduce new patent-pending vertical farming technology. Affinor is positioned to become a major food producer Track record of growing and selling lettuce, spinach and herbs Strong strategic alliance with retail distributors Potential for very strong gross margins and economics 9

10 MARKET SUMMARY Vertical Farming Strawberries Turn Key Opportunity Proprietary technologies in vertical farming equipment and custom proprietary software control precise combinations of light, temperature, water and nutrients to create specific growing conditions that result in optimum crop production, product quality and shelf life. Exclusive technology to mechanically pollinate plants State of the art greenhouse technology with vertical growing equipment and proprietary cultivation processes results in year round, perpetual harvesting. Fully intergraded Standard Operating Procedures, including cultivation methods, bio-security, employee hygiene, sanitation protocols and food safe coupled with automation and software manuals are designed specifically for the fruits and vegetables, pharmaceutical and medical marihuana markets. 10

11 MARKET SUMMARY Strawberry consumption in Canada has been on the rise fairly consistently over the last 20 years, raising around 94% since 1991, 73% of which increased in the last 10 years 11

12 MARKET SUMMARY At the same time as strawberry consumption in Canada has been increasing however, so have the amount of berries imported. In specific, Canadian production in 2011 accounted for only around 14.3% of total percent available to market, with 85.7% coming from imported berries

13 MARKET SUMMARY Taking a look at the strawberries that are produced in Canada, we find that most provinces have been experiencing an overall decline in production, aside from those located in Quebec who are all members of their province s producer group (547 farms).

14 MARKET SUMMARY Furthermore, the Canadian Industry s capacity to grow and provide for the population dwindles throughout the winter and spring months, when imports from USA to Canada are at their highest once most household s frozen storage of strawberries are down, and summer weather and health-campaigns kick in for spring.

15 Globalization of Growing with Vertical Farms Pesticide Free, Non GMO, Zero Water Waste Efficient production utilizing minimum space and a quick growth system yielding maximum product per square foot. 15

16 OPPORTUNITY Present methods of agriculture and food production are facing multiple pressures. The rising cost of fossil fuels, the negative environmental impact of fossil fuels, the decrease in arable land; the unsustainable use and pollution of fresh water resulting from the use of chemical inputs such as fertilizers and the inability to stop the spread of genetically modified seeds, as the world s population grows exponentially, all threaten the future of conventional agricultural production and food security worldwide. Other factors increasingly that threaten crops include: - Pollinating plants naturally with bees as climate change and disease threaten populations world wide - Climate change is the largest to food security including long droughts and infertile soils. - Viruses and insect infestations - Rising price of fossil fuels to transport and import products The environmental challenges posed by agriculture are huge, and they will only become more pressing as we try to meet the growing need for food worldwide. It is time for a change in the way we grow our food. 16

17 BUSINESS CONCEPT Affinors vertical growing technologies, use and control precise combinations of light, temperature, water, and nutrients to create specific growing conditions that result in optimum crop production with maximum product quality and shelf-life. The Affinor system can be used to produce a number of high quality agricultural products including herbs, lettuce, spinach, and plants that require pollination such as strawberries. It is the mission of Affinor Growers to be the world-wide technology and market leader in creating and commercializing the most economical vertical farming technologies that use the least possible resources (e.g. land, water, and energy resources) to produce the highest quality pesticide-free produce year-round, regardless of environmental conditions. 17

18 BUSINESS CONCEPT Advantages over traditional growing methods include: Year-round production anywhere in the world and on land otherwise not suitable for food production, Mechanical pollination as bee shortages continue to grow as an issue, Increased yield per square foot of land estimated to be 10 to 15 times depending on the crop, Significantly reduced growth-cycle due to optimal lighting, nutrition and air flow, Dramatically reduced spoilage and extended shelf life estimated at up to 100% depending on the crop a large competitive advantage for distributors, retailers and a significant benefit to customers, Greatly reduced shipping (e.g. most spinach sold in Ontario is imported and shipped over 2,000 miles from California), Minimized environmental impact in terms of water use, land, and power, Eliminating the use of pesticides and other chemical inputs, other than organic-based fertilizer, Improved market-based pricing with consistently available local product, and Reduced capital requirements in terms of expensive to maintain large scale farming equipment. 18

19 BUSINESS CONCEPT Affinor is introducing new vertical farming technology for growing fruits and vegetables 19

20 BUSINESS CONCEPT A vertical farm of one square block, 30 stories high could produce the same amount of food as 24,000 acres of farmland. Significant advantages of the Affinor system, over what has previously been considered to be the market leading system, include: Optimized and automated air flow, temperature and CO2 at every vertical level allowing plants to breath properly and more rapid and proper tissue development, An estimated 60-70% estimated labour advantage using Reduced risk related to watering times due to unique irrigation systems, Dramatically improved lighting design for faster growth and significantly higher yield, An estimated 25-35% reduction in equipment costs by mass producing components, An estimated 30% reduction in space required to product the same output, A patent-pending pollination technology allowing Vertical Designs facilities to grow crops like strawberries that require pollination (e.g. by bees). 20

21 BUSINESS CONCEPT Affinors vertical growing technologies, use and control precise combinations of light, temperature, water, and nutrients to create specific growing conditions that result in optimum crop production with maximum product quality and shelf-life. The Affinor system can be used to produce a number of high quality agricultural products including herbs, lettuce, spinach, and plants that require pollination such as strawberries. It is the mission of Affinor Growers to be the world-wide technology and market leader in creating and commercializing the most economical vertical farming technologies that use the least possible resources (e.g. land, water, and energy resources) to produce the highest quality pesticide-free produce year-round, regardless of environmental conditions. 21

22 SPINACH, LETTUCE, HERBS Affinor is positioned to become a major food producer Track record of growing and selling Lettuce, Spinach and Herbs Operational growing facilities with land acquisition in progress Strong strategic alliances with retail distributors Potential for very strong gross margins and economics Experienced professional management team 22

23 BUSINESS CONCEPT Affinor has optimal return on investment by focusing on a system that minimizes the largest costs to traditional and other vertical farming: The cost of land: it generally does not make sense to build vertical farms in premium retail or downtown space. There are vast amounts of less expensive land in areas close to city centers, including environmentally contaminated sites that are well suited to vertical farming. Labour: intelligent automation reduces labour by up to an estimated 70% over competing vertical farming systems, Waste: The amount of produce typically thrown away by a retail store can be as high as 30%. The consumer can also throw away a large portion because it likely only lasts a few days. The Affinor system was designed to produce the highest quality products with the longest shelf life and best flavour. Importantly it reduces hard costs and increases value making it a preferred product of retailers and consumers, even at top end prices. Electricity: intelligent automation optimizes the impact of light on the growth cycle and improving the quality of the product. The use of alternative energies such as wind and solar, combined with recent advancements in energy storage can further increase efficiencies. All of this translates into superior value for everyone in the value chain. 23

24 BUSINESS CONCEPT Affinor has targeted Quebec as a prime location to start growing strawberries. The high percentage of annual sunlight coupled with its proximity to national produce distributors makes it a prime location for industrial greenhouses to operate. 24

25 BUSINESS CONCEPT Within the greenhouse, Affinor will use growing towers to grow crops. Plants will be exchanged in the greenhouse 4 times a year at which point flowering will already be initiated when they are transferred to the towers. Each plant site in the greenhouse are planned to produce a set of flowers every 1-2 weeks continually. Therefore, fruit production will be perpetual (year round) with a harvest every month with an estimate of 475,000 lbs shipped per year. 25

26 TECHNOLOGY Affinor s licensed patent technology and patent pending technology coupled with its in-process acquisitionn of new patent pending technology all vertical growing systems, positions the company like no other in the vertical farming industry. Affinor can offer software driven growing solutions that can produce high quality, scientifically engineered products at a fraction of the price than traditional growers in any location. The following patent portfolio describes the different technologies that would be used in the business concept. 26

27 TECHNOLOGY Vertical Farm 27

28 TECHNOLOGY Patent portfolio description Affinor licensed patents includes Method and Apparatus for Automated Horticulture and Agriculture - international publication number: WO 2013/ A1 28

29 TECHNOLOGY Patent portfolio description Affinor licensed patent pending technology includes Method and Apparatus for Automated Vertical Horticulture and Agriculture (patent pending, no international publication number) 29

30 Vertical Strawberry Growing Machine Grown on a similar machine 30

31 TECHNOLOGY All of Affinors vertical growing technology can be used for a wide variety of products and industries. Leafy Greens traditional lettuce, spinach and herbs with quick growth cycles and superior shelf life using Affinor technology. Natural Health Products over the past few decades, the world has witnessed the explosive growth of a multi-billion dollar nutraceutical industry food and food products providing health and medical benefits. Example crops that can be exploited using vertical technology include: alfalfa, aloe vera, peppermint, ginger, sage, arina. Flowering fruits Affinor s rotating design and proprietary pollination process allows crops like strawberries and other flowering fruits requiring pollination to be grown vertically. Cannabis and Marihuana seed to flower quickly, under controlled conditions to produce maximum yields, high quality marihuana in a safe secure location using vertical technology. 31

32 COMPETITION Affinor has reviewed available information on existing installations in the vertical farming sector including those of SkyGreen, Alterrus Systems, Verticorp, AeroFarms, FarmedHere, Omega Gardens, Urban Barns and Terrasphere Systems. Affinor believes it has developed whole solutions that are superior in maximizing food quality while minimizing costs and maximizing productivity per square foot of growing space. SkyGreens - Any dependency on sunlight can result in cell elongation on cloudy days resulting in inferior shelf life and lower nutritional value. Without supplemental lighting the growing cycle can be longer when natural growing seasons shift. Alterrus / Verticorp - Use of sun radiation hydroponically can result in cell elongation, unless growing baby products, inferior shelf life and lower nutritional value. Spraying feed increases susceptibility to high bacteria count and increasing possibility of washing to pass food safety regulations. If washed, then possibility of damage rises because of cell elongation. Supplemental lighting is likely insufficient in winter or if cloudy for 5 or more days which can negatively impact quality. Aerofarms - Largely shelves with pumps and misters. More of a home type set up and poorly suited for large production as it would be too labour intensive. Farmed Here - Appears to grow products by floating them in oxygenated water. It appears labour intensive and lacking automatic lighting and process automation with seeding and packaging by hand. Urban Barns - Many moving parts and in the video the lettuce appears to not be forming properly due to insufficient airflow. The use of space appears to not be optimized. Plants appear to be continuously moving which can vary the distance from light and negatively impact quality. Omega Garden - Rotation creates stress on the plants which can result in ethylene gas and negatively impact the organic chemistry. Water running to the surface of roots and dripping onto leaf tissue provides potential for stalk rot. The design has significant relative inefficiencies from seeding to harvesting. 32

33 STRAWBERRIES Summary Exclusive technology to mechanically pollinate plants Large purchase orders for strawberries pending Scientific plant and berry experts on advisory board Strong strategic alliances with retail distributors Potential for very strong gross margins and economics Experienced professional management team 33

34 COMPETITION Within BC, Canada and the world, it is likely that Affinor Growers will face competition from both commercial strawberry suppliers and those committed to growing their own food. This sections seeks to first understand key risks Affinor may experience in industry, followed with mitigation efforts currently planned or underway. To begin, a list of growers by province currently producing strawberries in Canada is listed below with locations and comments on their facilities/companies. A list of strawberry growers by province as well as the 9 growers associations available to Canada are listed below. 34

35 COMPETITION Threat of New Competition As Affinor is successful in growing and providing quality strawberries, other farming and tech companies will no doubt spark interest in similar forms of operations. Affinor s success may attract new companies/organizations interested in developing similar programs in BC and Canada. Both new and existing suppliers distributing agricultural products in Canada could reduce Affinor s market share and jeopardise its ability to become self-sustaining. Entrance of new companies/organisations into the BC market for strawberries is an ongoing possibility Affinor is keenly aware of. Barriers to entry are moderate, given the extensive capital involved in most farming operations and pricing of farmland in BC (+/- 100k/acre). However, Affinor is already in the process of securing a purchase order for its products to ensure a streamline income. Rather than seeing others as producers to compete with, we will see them as partners to collaborate with and share resources with, working to secure our positions as leaders in the industry. In addition, while the focus of Affinor is growing plants and food crops, our advisory team is uniquely composed not only of plant and food production expertise, but also of drug and neutraceutical specialists. Working with a diversified advisory team will allow Affinor to access additional industries for product sales that may otherwise not be available. Diversifying its income stream will allow Affinor to remain stable in the face of income challenges from any one given source. Threat of Substitute Services When seeking to purchase strawberries for food consumption in BC and Canada, there are countless other providers retailers, distributors and consumers can consider. Consumers look for strawberries that are affordable, available, non-gmo, organic and most importantly, that taste good. Many of the berries available on the Canadian market today (84% on estimate) have been imported from California and other southern parts of the world. Berries shipped are often picked early before ripening and left to either ripen en route or chemically supported applications. Water shortages and climate change effects are beginning to prevail in the southern parts of N America where most of our berries are currently imported from. Affinor will work with various berry associations, ministry groups and retail grocers across the province to ensure promotions of local and Canadian strawberries are heard, enhancing consumer awareness of their availability and the importance of supporting local growers. While others may enter the realm of vertical farming to compete with Affinor s yield and quality, Affinor will continue with our R&D facility exploring and continually enhancing our designs and production methods; we will keep on top of all industry news and our competitors to ensure our products will always be the best quality at an affordable price. 35

36 MARKET - Strawberries Strawberry Consumption increases while Canadian production decreases. Pesticide laden imports on the rise 36

37 The Opportunity Affinor Growers is ready to capitalize on the Marihuana market 37

38 Affinor Growers plans to conventionally grow high quality plants at competitive prices. 38

39 OPPORTUNITY Affinor s plan is to industrialize and automate a profitable system to package products that adhere to Health Canada s rigid standards. 39
