Innovative Urban Farming Competition 2023

Presently, we are facing a new wave of price hikes of imported raw materials. Although the market has predicted that it is not going to be permanent, but it is still ongoing. This affects many types of businesses. One of the biggest impacts is the agriculture sector – feed for poultry farming, crop production, fertilisers and many more. This will result in a chain reaction to all food and beverage businesses.

The primary aim of this competition is to create an opportunity to encourage Malaysians to help at least in reducing the cost of food and innovate for better health. Therefore, an innovation in agri-foodtech – the first important step is to create a solution to a problem. Participation in this competition will bring about the innovation to a higher platform which will benefit many small communities in Malaysia.
