People’s daily routines are keeping their attention from necessary things that make their lives easier and more interactive with their surrounding environment. AquaBloom provides trusted, reliable, consistent & diversified supplies for the agricultural sector that include; soilless systems and complementary products essential for traditional and nontraditional farming, as well as creating awareness and educating its customers about the benefits of soilless agriculture and how to manage it that is novel to our culture. Aiming to become the first choice marketplace and reference for all agricultural equipment and products, a one-stop-shop that will serve clients from all over the region, AquaBloom currently offers its products to agriculture hobbyists, farmers, entrepreneurs, households, private farm owners, and private business owners in Levant, GCC & MENA.
With people looking for the easiest ways to grow their own food with the least possible effort especially due to latest sudden changes in the world; households are turning to grow their own food in their backyards, balconies and they are most interested in readily available and healthy produce. Currently in Jordan and the Middle East, soilless farming is in its development/introductory stage where most people are practitioners, hobbyists, and enthusiasts, with few soilless and organic farms launched in the last 5 years, and no marketplace that offers all related supplies and equipment in one place. By providing systems and all needed supplies to grow, AquaBloom will make it easier for nonagricultural experts to grow their own food in any area available in their homes.
