Quebec greenhouse-grown strawberries

It's an encouraging trend, I think, as companies manage to grow vertical strawberries under LED lights or these in greenhouses. Savoura is a company that produces delicious greenhouse tomatoes here in summer; so why not strawberries in winter, too?  Their website doesn't provide much information about how they're growing them, but they smell good and the packaging is refreshingly compostable.
