With the latest-inked agreement between SUSS and Nutrious Farms on 24 February 2022, SUSS students can now look forward to being a part of an enabling environment to build a responsible and sustainable agriculture and food ecosystem in Singapore.

The programmes curated by Nutrious Farms and SUSS under this partnership will seek to nurture agri-preneurs and agri-specialists. They will learn to apply evolving agri-technologies with best “farm-to-market” practices and develop innovative solutions and business model, with an aim to address Singapore’s food security challenges.

In the inaugural Agri-preneur Incubation Programme, students learn and experience the different planting methods, grow their own crops and ultimately build a business model around it. Mr Damien Lam, Director of Nutrious Farms, shared: “We are encouraged by the enthusiasm of the SUSS students as they learn and experiment with different techniques and technologies in an indoor vertical farm right in the heart of the SUSS campus.”
