&ever will launch its first indoor farm in Singapore in fourth quarter of 2021 to grow and deliver nutritious, great-tasting, and pesticide-free leafy greens to local consumers. The 15m high, multi layer, vertical farm will make it possible to grow crops locally, in any climate condition, all year round. &ever has been awarded funding under SFA’s ‘30×30 express’ grant in October 2020 to ramp up local food production over the next six to 24 months. The grant is awarded to companies that make use of highly productive farming systems that can be constructed and implemented quickly to achieve high production levels.The mega-farm project has been made possible by the Singapore Food Agency who launched the ‘30×30 Express’ grant in 2020. the grant will support the country’s agri-food industry and accelerate the ramp-up of local production, with the aim of meeting 30 per cent of Singapore’s nutritional needs with food produced locally by 2030.&ever will produce up to 500,000 kg of leafy greens annually, all cultivated in Singapore for local consumption eliminating long transport ways. This production in the backyard is made possible by &ever’s dryponics method. dryponics keeps the plants alive, with the roots intact, until they reach the consumer. Consumers will be able to harvest the plants only moments before consumption, resulting in higher nutritional value, better-tasting greens, and less food waste.Using 95 percent less water, 60 percent less fertilizer, and zero pesticides, &ever produces plants that are more nutrient-rich and better for the environment. Usually, green leaves lose most of their nutritional value after being washed in chlorine, chilled, packed, stored in warehouses, and then sent on the road for transportation many times across thousands of kilometres.
