Singapore grower wants people to consider the high cost of imported foods

With its first brand campaign, Singapore hydroponic farm Sustenir is urging people to reduce their carbon footprint by choosing local produce.

The campaign by Iris Singapore includes print, out-of-home, social media, influencers and PR.

Singapore currently imports more than 90% of its food supply but wants to reduce this to 70% by 2030. Founded in Singapore in 2013, Sustenir has thus far raised US$15.4 million from Grok Ventures and Temasek Holdings. The company's product range incudes kale, arugula, strawberries, juices and pesto, plus an upcoming spinach-lettuce-kale mix.

Ad Nut eats a 100% locally sourced diet, except for a monthly shipment of Brazil nuts handpicked in the Amazon and imported by air at ludicrous expense. Perhaps this is a vice Ad Nut should reconsider.
