“8 years ago, when I was pregnant for the first time, I decided to shift my diet to organic food. I had read it was good for my baby and for me. Today, the question we constantly ask ourselves at ShiokFarm is how do we make sure the organic food we are feeding our families with emits as little Co2 as possible? The way our food is shipped to us and from how far, has a substantial impact on our community’s carbon footprint.”
- Claire Chabrières, April 2021
Since the creation of ShiokFarm, we have been working hard to not only deliver the best organic produce to our clients, but also to do that in a sustainable way. We are constantly reviewing our processes and engaging with our partners and community to lower our impact on the environment.
We are proud in 2021 to publish our first sustainability report. It’s packed with the actions we have implemented so far and the upcoming projects. We will give you an update every year on our progress.
We have also calculated our 2020 carbon emissions, set reduction target for the coming years and joined a reforestation program in South East Asia, that will involve all our community!
Our first sustainability report focuses on three of the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations and supports Singapore’s Green Plan 2030.
