The irrepressible and indomitable Travelling Gourmet TM goes to harvest and try…

MOST fresh hydroponic vegetables grown in Singapore by Achisen Just Produce.

Archisen has nurtured fresh and nutritious greens for Singaporeans through their urban farming solutions for over six years. Just Produce, Archisen’s flagship brand, carries a variety of salads and specialty herbs, clean and free of pesticides and GMOs! All of Just Produce’s vegetables like the Tangy Sorrel with peppery flavours, juicy crunchy Ice Plant and Zesty Mustard are nurtured attentively in a climate-controlled environment where crop health and moisture levels are consistently monitored. Juicy low Calorie Ice Plant originated in South Africa and is now very popular. These plants are power packed with both nutrition and flavour and are good for our health.

In the Commonwealth Capital Building at Buroh Lane is Achisen’s high yielding farm. In just a short span of six years, this 7,000 sq ft farm has grown to account for the production of about 1% of leafy vegetables grown locally by producing up to 100 tonnes of vegetables a year in Singapore. There is an amazing saving of 90% of water needed compared to traditional farms.

At the Just Produce pop-up store I sampled the Tangy Sorrel, crunchy and crispy Ice Plant and wasabi flavoured Zesty Mustard, which I harvested myself from Archisen’s patented tower systems. The wasabi flavour in the Mustard leaves is quite strong. Very nice to wrap up a piece of Salmon in a Mustard leaf ans then enjoy the flavour combination when you eat the morsel. The vertical slab like tower systems use a close circuit system so nothing is wasted. The plants are grown with nutrients like potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and trace elements too.

They also have Mesclun and crunchy Coral Lettuce. The growing towers can also be sent to restaurants for the kitchen staff to harvest the vegetables.


The Travelling Gourmet TM says, “Keep calm and eat healthy vegetables”
