REWE GREEN FARMING

WIESBADEN ERBENHEIM

ECF was commissioned in 2019 by REWE (Central Region) as a specialist planner to plan and construct a building-integrated rooftop farm on the next generation of the REWE GREEN FARMING supermarket in Wiesbaden. The first supermarket in Europe with an integrated rooftop farm went into operation in May 2021.

 

By applying the operator model, the project was financed by REWE, planned and built by ECF and permanently leased and operated by ECF. The food produced is distributed "fresh from the roof" exclusively to REWE and is available in all supermarkets in the Mitte region.
