Making ShiokFarm Sustainable Together
“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.

Singapore Green Plan 2030
Singapore has built a 10-year plan to address the climate change crisis by 2030.
ShiokFarm is committed to actively contribute in achieving the nation’s goals.
How our members take part in our sustainable journey
Starting in July 2021, we will involve our community in our effort to become climate positive. Each bag will be charged an additional $1.5 per KG of yearly subscription.
If you subscribe to the 3kg bag, you automatically donate $4.5 per year
If you subscribe to the 5kg + 3kg bags, you automatically donate $12 per year
If you subscribe to the 5kg ECO Bag, you automatically donate $2.3 per year
These donations are invested in tree planting programs around the region and help the community to become carbon positive.
Going further: Plant A Tree!
Our Plant a Tree program was set up for two reasons: firstly, we wanted our children to understand that food takes time to grow. A pineapple does not grow in a plastic tray at the supermarket. A pineapple can take up to 2.5 years to grow, hence you want to make sure you finish your plate and not waste food. The second objective of this program is to show children that even children as young as 3 years old can have a very positive impact in his/her community.
We teach children how to plant and grow trees, with seeds taken from their ShiokFarm fruits (papaya, bananas, citrus, etc.). After a few weeks, they will have little trees. The trees will eventually give fruit the children will be able to eat, or donate to the community.
