Taking food to the next level

With millions of square meters in the built-up areas to serve as fertile ground, urban farming in Singapore has every chance of growing into an exemplary, sustainable and profitable solution. Singapore has already taken the first initiatives. Now it is time to take it to the next level.

Urban Farming Partners, a group of experts in the fields of food, logistics, planning and architecture, are working together with the Dutch Government. We would like to team up with partners in Singapore and investors for the next big step.

Pitch of UFP for the president of Singapore and queen Máxima

Urban Farming Partners @Techinnovation Singapore Urban Farming Partners (UFP) is an initiative of Dutch experts in food, logistics and urban planning to set up urban farms in megacities, starting with Singapore. The demand for fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables is growing rapidly, while space to grow produce is limited. Today in Singapore only 10% of food consumed is produced locally. UFP aims to change this. We stand for a unique formula; a carefully selected team of partners that provides innovative horticulture technology and holds integrated knowledge of every part of the supply chain. The coming months, UFP shall take major steps in making the integrated urban farm a reality. Currently we are conducting feasibility studies to ensure optimal success. Further investment is needed to reach our goals. We are looking forward to meeting partners at TechInnovation who can complement to our project. Feel free to join or ask for more information by reaching out to us at the Urban Agri-Tech Pavilion.

HSL and Urban Farming Partners team up for sustainable local greens

HSL and Urban Farming Partners team up for sustainable local greens Singapore imports 90% of its food - a sustainable solution was launched at CleanEnviro Summit Singapore. Infrastructure construction company HSL and Dutch consortium Urban Farming Partners formally marked their partnership at the seminar on Circular Industrial Parks, part of CleanEnviro Summit Singapore. The two partners will develop a business plan for their envisaged urban farm. This farm will be located inside the premises of HSL at the waterfront at Penjuru Road, opposite Jurong Island. Aside from being the owner of the location and investor, HSL will play a significant role in the company behind the urban farm. Urban Farming Partners is a public-private partnership with expertise in various aspects of indoor growing concepts, from growing and logistics to marketing and urban planning. The aim of the cooperation is to produce vegetables for the local market in a sustainable manner. About 10% of the food that is consumed in Singapore is produced locally. The Singapore Agri-food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) supports and encourages initiatives that contribute to a higher level of self-sufficiency in greens. With the industry of indoor farming still in its infancy, Urban Farming Partners chooses to engineer the farm backwards, starting with the demand and making sure the technologies applied are in line with local consumer trends. Moreover, solutions from the circular economy concepts will be applied, such as the use of solar energy, rain water and by-products of neighboring companies, like CO2 and residual cooling. The signing ceremony was witnessed by the chairman of the Centre for Liveable Cities, Mr Khoo Teng Chye, Mr Ahmed Aboutaleb, mayor of the city of Rotterdam, and H.E. Ms Margriet Vonno, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
