Urban Farming Partners and HSL collaborate to build large scale integrated commercial farm in Singapore

Urban Farming Partners and HSL collaborate to build large scale integrated commercial farm in Singapore Singapore, February 5th 2018 Urban farming Partners (UFP), a Dutch public-private partnership, joins forces with HSL, an infrastructure construction company in the ASEAN region. Together they will develop a large scale integrated commercial farm in HSL’s existing building. This farm potentially has a capacity of over 1000 tons of healthy and fresh, ready-to-eat produce for the Singapore market. Growing fresh produce in an optimal indoor environment with state-of-the-art LED-lighting, irrigation, fertigation and climate control systems; this integrated urban farm concept of UFP fits seamlessly with the opportunities in the industrial premises of HSL in the Singapore harbour. UFP and HSL signed a cooperation agreement on the 30th of January to make this integrated urban farm a reality. This new partner is an essential addition to the established partnerships with Citizen Farm as a local operator and knowledge partner Nanyang Technological University. Citizen Farm, has already developed productive food gardens in Singapore for clients like restaurants, schools, hotels, and residences. HSL is devoted to social responsibility, sustainability, innovation, and green and healthy environments. These traits match perfectly with the vision of UFP and Citizen Farm. Circular processes like the harvest of rainwater and solar power and reuse of industrial CO2 are examples of sustainable proven technologies that will be included in the overall design of the urban farm. Mid 2018 the partners will decide on the crops and growth systems most suitable for the urban farm in the HSL building. Together, we take Singapore food to the next level!
