Singapore-based agritech firm Archisen aims to produce up to 300 tons of Asian greens per annum with its automated indoor farm in the city-state while exploring opportunities to build smart farms abroad, its Co-Founder said.
“We are in the process of building a fully automated indoor farm in Singapore that is able to produce up to 300 tons of Asian greens per annum and it will be completed this year. This will triple our production output while allowing us to offer locally-grown Asian greens, which are our local staples to Singaporeans,” Archisen Co-Founder Sven Yeo told TechNode Global in an interview.
“We are expanding our current farm to 10,000 sq ft. We are also in talks with various partners to look into building more farms abroad,” he said.
Besides its home-base Singapore, Archisen, which currently produced lettuces, rainbow chard, sorrel, mustard and ice plant, is looking to expand to cities in Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
“We also have another major project in partnership with a multinational corporation that will be launched this year, which will be very exciting as it is an opportunity for us to showcase our technology in terms of crop science and robotics as it will be open to the general public,” he added.
