Kitchen Garden brings life, light and
nutrient-rich plants from kitchen to table

TALLINN,
ESTONIA
– Luxury
smart home appliance brand Natufia combines
wellness and technology by debuting its Kitchen Garden as the world’s first
fully-integrated and automated hydroponic kitchen garden.

The technology of the Kitchen Garden
automatically maintains the perfect light, temperature, water and pH level to
ensure optimal health for the plants. It also optimizes all minerals, nutrients
and vitamins for the non-GMO leaves and flowers. Since it is controlled
indoors, homeowners do not need to worry about pesticides, herbicides or
fungicides. These are year-round, 24/7, kitchen-to-table ingredients without
the concern of weather challenges or seasons.

“Natufia is going beyond farm-to-fork
and providing herbs and plants from kitchen-to-table. With the combination of
our proprietary technology and high-end design, the Kitchen Garden allows you
to now practice a sustainable lifestyle and eat healthy while minimizing your
environmental impact through packaging, pollution, food miles, food waste and
toxins,” said Gregory Lu, Natufia co-founder. “It reduces waste in the food
supply chain and gives the homeowners year-round control over what they want to
grow, regardless of climate or season.”The seeds are strictly non-GMO,
certified both organic and Demeter—today’s most strict certification for seeds.
They come in individual, patented seedpods and can grow anything from basil to
lemongrass. The unit simultaneously grows 32 plants in
handmade ceramic cups. The watering is fully automated, cascading from the
top, down to each cup. This ensures that each plant receives the necessary
amount of water and nutrients, which are dissolved directly into the water.
Each Kitchen Garden can produce enough plants and herbs to ensure two harvests
a day.

Also, by connecting it to the Wi-Fi,
owners can monitor and control the machine through the cloud. It even has three
playlists to play music for the plants: classical, ambiance and nature sounds.

Additional
benefits and features include:

·        
Specially
developed LED lights mimic nature and provide the optimal range of the light
spectrum for plant growth.

·        
Tinted
glass so people can see their plants growing in real time.

·        
Food-grade
stainless steel for aesthetics and a clean environment for plants.

·        
The
unit can be integrated seamlessly into any high-end kitchen design, similar to
other appliances.

Natufia’s continued innovation and
cutting-edge technology has not gone unnoticed in the design world. After a
recent Best in Category award win at the 2019 WestEdge Design Fair,
Natufia will participate at several high-profile tradeshows in March, both
abroad and within the United States.

The company exhibited at kbb Birmingham in the
United Kingdom from March 1 to 4 and received the 2020 Innovation Award. The
biennial show is the U.K.’s largest gathering of the world’s best kitchen,
bedroom and bathroom brands.

Natufia then travels to the Architectural Digest Design Show March 19-22 in New York, followed by
the New England Food Show (NEFS) in Boston from March 22-24. NEFS
is the region’s largest restaurant and foodservice event with the latest
products, services and technologies on display.
