Bradford, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/16/2016 -- In Kozebue, it isn't anywhere near as easy to get hold of fresh vegetables as it is in the UK. It can in many cases take around two weeks for vegetables to make their way to the grocery store after being picked and not only that but a high amount of the produce comes from the Lower 48 and can be in incredibly dire conditions by the time they reach the shop shelves.

Because farming outside isn't an option in the tundra of the arctic, an Alaska Native company are now working to grow fresh produce for rural villages throughout the arctic using modern, innovative hydroponic technologies. Artic Greens is already growing kale, spinach and many types of lettuce in shipping containers with the intentions to provide high quality produce to the people living in these places all year round.

Leading UK hydroponics retailer Bradford Hydroponics was keen to comment on this saying, "It is really great to see a company making such a great effort to ensure that individuals are able to enjoy fresh produce as this is something that is more important than many think. The hydroponic industry is constantly growing in the UK too, as more and more people are realising that it is superior method of growing. This is why we constantly offer the most advanced and high quality equipment at the most competitive prices."
