Mucci Farms and Prospiant

Prospiant, a U.S. provider of controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) greenhouse solutions, is featured in an episode of the award-winning documentary series “Viewpoint with Dennis Quaid.”

The documentary includes a short video highlighting CEA’s role in solving food security concerns, where team members from Prospiant and Mucci Farms teach viewers about the advantages and benefits commercial greenhouse production offers for a food-secure future.

Viewpoint has posted the episode on its website and will distribute the video to 170+ stations throughout the U.S. for use in their interstitial programming over the next year. The food security episode, which is designed for airing on Public Television, is part of a larger series aimed at drawing attention to the value of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) through educational and inspiring stories on the latest topics impacting the world. The condensed version of the video, without Dennis Quaid’s additional commentary, can be viewed on Prospiant’s YouTube channel or below.

Food security has taken center stage recently as a matter of global importance to feed a growing world population and ensure healthy food is accessible to all. However, changing climate conditions and concerns for the environment present obstacles to achieving this goal by relying solely on outdoor food production. In the video, Prospiant’s President Mark Dunson discusses controlled-environment agriculture’s potential impact on food security through higher and more stable yields, as well as Prospiant’s part in providing complete greenhouse ecosystems to bring fresh fruits and vegetables closer to consumers while making food production more sustainable. 

Prospiant recently worked together with Mucci Farms, a producer of fresh, flavorful, greenhouse-grown produce, to build a 30-acre high-tech greenhouse. Danny Mucci, Partner and President of Sales and Marketing at Mucci Farms, talks in the video about the increasing need for top-quality produce grown with the highest food safety standards that are accessible 365 days a year in localized markets and how the new expansion will help Mucci Farms meet the demand now and in the future.

Viewpoint, hosted by actor Dennis Quaid, provides curated content online and top-quality programming for Public Television. It is a unique platform that delivers informational and educational documentaries covering a wide range of issues and topics. Prospiant’s collaboration with Viewpoint for the video presented a unique opportunity to highlight controlled-environment agriculture and commercial greenhouse growers’ critical role in the future of food.
