Food Farms in Singapore
Singapore is a small country with approximately 720 square kilometres of land. As we have competing land use needs, food farms occupy about 1% of our total land use.
We need to ensure that the space set aside for farming is used productively and sustainably, especially as we have set ourselves the “30 by 30” target - to build the capability and capacity of our local agri-food industry to produce 30% of our nutritional needs locally and sustainably by 2030.
To further enhance food production, SFA is looking to plan and redevelop the larger Lim Chu Kang area, and is working with other government agencies on the Agri-Food Innovation Park (AFIP), a high-tech agri-cluster in Sungei Kadut. SFA is also working to transform the aquaculture zones in the Straits of Johor to support higher production levels, as well as exploring the expansion of productive, sustainable fish farming in the Southern Waters.
