EXISTING NUMBER OF VERTICAL FARMS BUILT AND EXPECTED NUMBER IN OPERATION BY 2030

MP Dennis Tan

Mr Dennis Tan Lip Fong asked the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment (a) how many vertical farms have been built in Singapore so far; and (b) how many of such farms are expected to operate by 2030.

Ms Grace Fu Hai Yien: The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) licenses farms for their farming activity and not on the type of farming system deployed. As such, SFA does not track vertical farms as a distinct category. Today, we have about 260 food farms in our agri-food ecosystem, and the progressive ones are increasingly harnessing technologies that are productive, innovative and sustainable. We also see a good pipeline of local farms that are developing and piloting urban food solutions.
