One Line Pitch: VERTA is a unique start-up that has developed a flavourful cherry tomato which is both high in yield and disease resistant

Business Summary: VERTA has created a uniform one-sized cherry tomato with a yield of about three times the current production levels. These very tasty tomatoes are pretty coloured and highly durable for shipping to market. The tomatoes are produced using limited greenhouse methods with gene transition to increase efficiency, disease resistance and taste. The taste of this cherry tomato, production yield and the overall low cost of production are competitive advantages to entering the consumer market through chain stores, restaurants, and local markets
