Dutch firm’s mega VF produces in Singapore

SINGAPORE - Dutch agritech company Growy will be joining a number of international and local companies that have sunk their roots in land-scarce Singapore to research and develop vertical farming.

The firm said its vertical farm in Changi Logistics Centre, which starts production in the second half of the year, will be able to produce up to 500 tonnes of leafy greens annually, supporting Singapore’s “30 by 30” sustainable food security goal.

Growy plans to harvest a full range of produce including microgreens, baby leaf salad mixes and herbs in the 8,000 sq m growth space.

The company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on April 10 with several leading institutions in the Netherlands and Singapore involved in research and development (R&D) of vertical farming.

Mr Ard van de Kreeke, the founder and co-chief executive officer of Growy, said: “The MOU builds a bridge between the Dutch renowned horticulture expertise and Singapore’s thriving food security R&D ecosystem.

“Linking those two knowledge powerhouses will result in an acceleration of indoor vertical farming in Singapore and beyond”.
