With an ever-increasing global population and increased urbanisation, growing sufficient food on limited or non-arable land poses a challenge. The solution lies in innovative methods to produce vegetables in urban areas which use fewer resources and help reduce the carbon footprint of the food production system. They believe that vertical farming is a viable solution and are proud to have proven it in their Singapore-based R&D farm.

Their solution will help local farmers achieve a more sustainable living through increased land productivity and by becoming an environmentally friendly high-tech farm, providing high quality, fresh and safe vegetables to their customers.

The company is renowned for Sky Greens – world’s first low carbon, hydraulic driven vertical farm. The vegetables are planted on various shelves that rotate throughout the day, allowing those on the bottom to receive water and those on the top to receive sunlight. Food production through this method uses significantly less water, land, or energy than a farm would use to produce the equivalent amount.

Compared to traditional farms, the Sky Urban Vertical Farming System produces at least 10 times more yield. Although the Sky Urban system has primarily been used for Asian vegetables such as Chinese cabbage and nai bai, it could be used to grow all sorts of delicious fruits and veggies.
