With a goal to urbanize farming to create sustainable food production in cities, Indonesia-based start-up Tunas Farm leverages idle assets and turns them into food production using IoT and precision farming methods. The company believes that cities should be able to produce their own food due to population problems, urbanization, and other aspects such as climate change and natural disasters that can affect the food supply.
With such a magnificent vision, Tunas Farm is on a mission to change farming as we know it. Widya Surya Prayoga, CEO shares the journey of this ambitious venture and how the leadership team plan to scale the agritech business in Indonesia and the world.
"Our mission focuses on three main issues, namely production cost, auality, and selling price. With low production costs, premium quality, and affordable prices, we aim at providing affordable premium vegetables. Tunas Farm is one of the first indoor vertical farms in Indonesia and we have a mission to present our indoor facilities in all cities in Indonesia and have a positive impact on the sustainability of agriculture in Indonesia.
Not only that, but we also position ourselves as a partner for universities to train students to get directly involved in the real work environment in modern agriculture, because we were very difficult to find indoor farming experts when we first started Tunas Farm. With this step, we hope to become a leader in the modern agricultural industry in Indonesia.
