You might have heard about the global Locavore Movement. It became quite popular in recent years. Being a “locavore” means you aim to connect food producers and food consumers in the same geographic region, in order to develop more self-reliant and resilient food supply chains.
How is Malaysia doing in this regard? We did some research and found …
This ambitious Locavore project is based in Kapar, Petaling Jaya. Cultiveat members follow the general concept of sustainable farming by creating conditions that support A: the farmers and the crops. No pesticides are used.
Having dipped their hands into the soils of nowadays’ farming, the Cultiveat team learnt the harsh realities. Adding unpredictable weather, environmental damage, and a poor bottom-line for farmers, they concluded: food with harmful additives cannot be the status quo. So the goal was set: grow zero-pesticide, non-GMO produce only. Use sustainable and eco-friendly methods to grow leafy vegetables, herbs and tomatoes. Allow technology-enabled farms to grow tasty and nutritious produce all year round.
Who is buying Cultiveat vegetables?
Local business does. For example myBurgerLab uses Cultiveat Lettuce. Taking second place on Asia’s 50 Best Burgers, it’s no surprise that this local favourite is moving burgers like they were hot and scrumptious – because they are. What sets them apart from the competition is their high standard of ingredients. Their recipe for success: quality + local produce.
