Food Security

Malaysia has a strong reliance on agricultural import (about 18.3 billion USD) to feed up the nation. Urbanization, lack of innovations, labour shortages, and low incentives have led to a slow growth of agricultural productions. As such, a rapid price increase can be experienced over the years which food insecurity issue has been more significant than ever.

Food Waste

Malaysian generates an average of 15,000 tonnes of food waste EVERYDAY, which is equivalent to about 1.6kg per day! Notably, 3000 tonnes of them are still edible which could feed up thousands of families. In usual practice, these food wastes are dumping into wasteland and sea which drives land and water pollutions and affects the entire ecosystem.

Food Safety

As of 2018, nearly 441,000 tonnes of pesticide were used in Malaysia. Unfortunately, pesticide possesses a serious harm to our health. It could cause diarrhea, food poisoning, nausea, kidney failure, breathe issue, and cancers ultimately. Most importantly, they can’t be spotted with naked eye and get cleaned easily.

Food Miles

On average, Malaysia’s transport sector produces about 42 million metrics of carbon emission annually. This includes the transportation and delivery of agricultural foods starting from croplands to end customers like us. Moreover, the daily drive out to buy vegetables from the market is an unnoticeable contribution to this amount.

Our Initiatives

HAVVA enables everyone to enjoy nontoxic, fresh, and healthy food sustainably, which resolves food security and safety problems. We create a career path to marginal society, reduce food miles, and address global warming through innovative farming technology, methodology, digital platform, and AI integration. We embrace automated and low maintenance systems that anyone without prior skill can grow their food anywhere consistently, sustainably.

Specifically, we are proud to be an official Social Enterprise with the Social Enterprise Accreditation (SE.A) awarded by MaGIC in 2020. We are committed to working towards the United Nations Sustainable Developments Goals (SDG) in achieving a future-proof city, starting from a national scale.

HAVVA enables anyone to grow their own fresh foods easily and in turn to sustain themselves. To date, 511 HAVVA home users are producing about 11,986kg of fresh and NON-TOXIC foods for their own consumption a year. This has led them to be less dependent on external suppliers and import produces too.

With more than 25,000 kg of food being produced at home and local communities every year, we effectively reduce the carbon footprint from its food miles. Every year HAVVA users are saving 1900kg of CO2 collectively and these numbers are growing year on year.

Reduce 12,000L of Food Waste

HAVVA Vertical Compost Tower is now able to decompose 12 liters of food waste into fertilizer a year. We successfully sold off 1000 units which are avoiding food waste going into the landfill. Thus, it effectively prevents these wastes turning into landfill pollution.
