Founded by 36-year-old Sven Yeo and 38-year-old Vincent Wei, Archisen (a portmanteau of words taken from the phrase "Architecture for Sensor Networks") operates one of the highest-yielding indoor farms in Singapore, with a projected yield of up to 100 tonnes of vegetables a year.
"In 2011, we started to develop off-grid sensing infrastructure for IoT applications in smart cities and agriculture. During this period, we witnessed first-hand the inefficiencies large-scale traditional farmers faced due to the lack of information and operational visibility.
Many industries have been hit hard by Covid-19; we see companies closing, employees placed on leave, delays in supplies and restricted travel. Just Produce has seen a surge in online purchases during this period; delivery companies have also adapted efficiently to provide consumers with fresh and safe food.
As PM Lee shared in his speech a few weeks ago, Covid-19 is endemic and may remain for years to come. This creates a greater urgency for Archisen to plan how we can better contribute to establishing more farms to build food resilience in Singapore.
We will continue to reach out to consumers to understand their needs, and provide them with the freshest, most nutritious and flavorful vegetables grown in Singapore."
