On the one hand this is brilliant but it fails to answer so many other issues. They have a very high MES and depend on the need take a whole lorry load to a distribution depot. Quite apart from monoculture being wrong the economics don't add up. This was a very expensive building - to repeat the idea and grow sufficient for the country as a whole will never be viable.

We need viable facilities that cut costs - like ours!!
