About Lufa

Our mission is to create a better food system. Every day, we deliver directly to our customers (a.k.a. Lufavores) thousands of food baskets filled with our rooftop-grown veggies. We meet this daily challenge with a vision: to create a better food system, encompassing our rooftop farms and local agriculture in all shapes and sizes. This means farming on rooftops in cities, partnering up with local farmers and food makers, and creating a community of pick-up points to deliver all this food as directly as possible.

Our rooftop farms

We built the world’s first commercial rooftop greenhouse on an industrial building in Montreal, Quebec, to prove that high-yield, year-round farming is a smarter, more sustainable, and commercially viable way to feed cities. Since then, we’ve built new and bigger and better rooftop greenhouses, to grow more and more vegetables.
