produce origin

Where do my fruit and vegetables come from?

Our customers are often curious about the origin of our produce. So if you have been wondering where your fruit and vegetables come from, read on!

We purchase our fruit and vegetables from our trusted suppliers at the Tiong Bahru Market. We work very closely with our suppliers to source produce from as close to Singapore as possible with a lot of fruit and vegetables coming from Malaysia, Thailand and Australia. This helps to cut down the miles they travel to get them to you as fresh as possible.

Our fresh mint and basil are grown by Comcrop, a urban rooftop farming project on Orchard Road. This sustainable farm uses vertical farming and a pesticide-free aquaponic system to grow herbs and vegetables. It doesn’t get any fresher than that!!

We choose not to source any fresh produce from China due to concerns for health and safety.
