Sundaland Biodiversity


Food Forest Farm has been growing insecticide free fresh vegetables in the rainforest highlands of Titiwangsa Mountains since 2012.


From the Himalayas to Tenasserim Hills to Titiwangsa Mountains,
nestled in the Sundaland biodiversity hotspot of the tropical and sub-tropical rainforests of Peninsular Malaysia,
we discover

Food Forest Farm.

“The Sundaland hotspot is thought to have 25,000 plant species, 15,000 of which are endemic, and 2,795 vertebrate species, of which 1103 are endemic.
This level of endemism makes Sundaland the second most important hotspot in the world.”

We exist to serve Mother Nature’s providence to our customers through quality and traceable, insecticide free, fresh produce. 


Our Farming Protocols are based on knowledgeable and caring plant growth. A healthy and resilient plant is the basic principle underlying our pests and disease management approach.

Clean Environment & Careful Attention
We manage clean and nurturing greenhouse conditions as well as attentive growing media and foliar care throughout the stages of a healthy and resilient plant growth cycle:

Pesticide Residue Testing
We date stamp our Pesticide Residue Testing at Harvest Day, and perform a self-assessment of our Farming Protocols, based on a farmwide random sampling of crops and greenhouses, on a rotation basis over a period of 3 months, twice a year.

Premium non-GMO Seeds 
We grow with premium quality non-GMO seeds. 

Our selected seed varieties are thoughtful regarding the suitability and right resistances in our growing climate.

We care for our customers and our fresh produce chain in our considerate selection of the agronomical traits in the seed varieties.
We grow seed varieties with unique and durable traits in taste, appearance, yield, shelf life, and homogeneity.

Energy-efficient Agritech Systems
We deploy energy-efficient Agritech systems to augment our commitment to growing safe, healthy, nutrient-dense and environmentally-mindful food.

We have adapted several Agritech systems such as Autopot, NFT, Drip-to-waste, and we continually strive to innovate and adapt agri-technology in our farming practices.

Nutritional Diversity 

The choice and leadership to grow a diverse range of food crops ensures insecticide free food sustainability that both provides the necessary nutritional diversity in our food diet, as well as the continuous delight of discovery in agriculture resilience, adaptive innovation and human creativity.

Transparency, Accountability, Care and Dignity

We are anchored in our values, which is the foundation of our purpose and our origin.

We strive to be in joyful service and sustainable practice of the dignity of life.



We celebrate working in partnership with supermarkets, specialty grocers, hotels, restaurants, and cafes,
to share our diverse range of insecticide free fresh produce to the marketplace, together.

We grow and deliver insecticide free fresh produce,

When a residue test result is less than the limit of reporting (<LOR), it is considered a “not detectable” result.
There are NO reported detections for any of the 45 individual pesticides screened in the lab analysis.

The results allow us to confidently draw the following conclusions:

  1. The Food Forest Farm fresh food crops on day of harvest are free of synthetic insecticide and residual pre-emergent herbicide residues, from any source, that may be harmful to human health and the environment,
  2. The Food Forest Farm protocols and unique IP for growing fresh foods avoids the need to use synthetic pesticides,
  3. The Food Forest Farm fresh food crops are not contaminated by pesticide drift from nearby farms that use pesticides to grow food crops,
  4. The Food Forest Farm soils, water and environment are not contaminated by insecticides or residual pre-emergent herbicides that are likely to contaminate food crops from dust, soil splash or plant uptake and translocation.
