VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (CSE:AFI, OTC:RSSFF, Frankfurt:1AF) is pleased to announce that on Aug 9, 2018, the Government of Aruba held a press conference to announce they have approved VDA Vertical Designs Aruba VBA to build a vertical farming project in Aruba, using AFI’s vertical farming technology. The technology will allow VDA Vertical Designs Aruba VBA to produce crops year-round in Aruba’s tropical climate while utilizing land that, previously, could not be utilized for farming.

The Company had previously announced, on February 21, 2018, that it had signed an exclusive license agreement with Vertical Designs Aruba Inc. Due to some legal obstacles during the incorporation process, VDA Vertical Designs Aruba VBA was incorporated in place of Vertical Designs Aruba Inc. The Company and VDA Vertical Designs Aruba VBA are in the process of finalizing a new amended licensing agreement. The licensing agreement is expected to be completed early next week.
