As the world population is growing and urbanization is speeding up, this  happens at a cost. More and more often we read in the news about rising food prices, and not only- we can feel it by the faster speed with which our pockets get empty.

And the reason is not only the rising world population but also the extreme weather patterns that major food growing countries have experienced during the last decade. Singapore, one of the most densely populated countries in the world, has put aside quite some funds to find a way to feed its population, to encourage urban farming and research and development. Only 2% of the country’s land is devoted to farming and this is far from enough.
