The aim of the article is threefold. Firstly, since sustainable food production is a worldwide problem, the scientific and practical knowledge of potential business models of agricultural innovations are further expanded in the paper using Porter's generic strategies framework. Secondly, whereas agricultural innovations are becoming more valuable in the future, most of these innovations are yet unprofitable. Therefore, the challenges of transforming R&D results to profitable commercial products and services from an ecosystem management point of view is analyzed. Thirdly, the research provides interesting insights on how Covid-19 influenced the diffusion of vertical agriculture technology. The research was conducted using qualitative methods, the findings of the case study is based on twenty-six semi-structured interviews. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
