The world around us is changing. By the year 2050, projections by the United Nations estimate that 66% of global population will inhabit urban areas.

In mega-cities today, a large proportion of our food are grown and shipped from large distances away. This not only means produce that is lacking in freshness and quality, but also food that requires large amount of packaging and transport; contributing waste and greenhouse emissions that aggravates man's continuing damage on the environment. The growing disconnect from our food sources also means urban populations that are wasteful in food consumption, and farmers who are less inclined to grow clean, pesticide-free crops. More than ever, our cities' food landscape needs change to demand fresher, locally-grown food that is sustainably produced from accountable urban provenances.

VertiVegies started R&D in 2014 with the aim of providing an integrated urban farming solution for city-dwellers keen on changing their local food landscape.

After almost 2 years of growing (and tonnes of vegetables later), VertiVegies is now a full scale operational urban farm at Lim Chu Kang with a R&D facility centre along 289 Farnborough Road. Both sites showcase how we envision the future of food production to be...

  • productive
  • technology
    based
  • environmentally
    responsible

By providing both the physical
& technological infrastructure
for vertical intensive farming...

VertiVegies hopes to reduce the environmental impact of traditional agriculture and bring the growing of food closer to our communities. With versatile indoor farming solutions that are scalable to any urban setting, food production is intensified by stacking in constraint spaces, and maximized by growing year-round in optimal, controlled conditions independent of erratic climatic events. Coupled with knowledge-based consultancy services.
