Coventry-based hydroponics developer HydroGarden's vertical-farming system VydroFarm was among the winners in the Future of Manufacturing Regional Awards, presented by EEF, formerly the Engineering Employers Federation.

The firm will now go on to represent the Midlands in EEF's National Awards, the winners of which will be announced on 31 January 2017 in London.

HydroGarden says it intends to "maximise VydroFarm's significant growth and sales potential, especially via export".

In May the company was awarded £340,000 from the government's Agri-Tech Catalyst fund to develop the format.
