GarGeon and FOLO Farm join forces to combat the issue of food waste in Malaysia


Folo Farm was founded in 2014

by a group of childhood friends who were concerned about the chronic illnesses affecting their loved ones.They wanted to provide their families with
healthy, organic food and decided to start an organic farm. However, they lacked the experience required to start one until they partnered with Ah Lek
and his wife, who have more than 20 years of experience in organic farming.

Today, FOLO Farm is a thriving organic farm that not only produces healthy vegetables and microgreens but also turns food waste into
rich organic compost.
The farm collects food waste from restaurants and hotels that partner with them, including the Renaissance Hotel,
to reduce waste management costs and save food waste from landfill by composting it FOLO Farm’s compost helps regenerate degraded soil and
restore the soil’s fertility, resulting in produce rich in nutrients.

FOLO Farm has also partnered with GarGeon to expand its network of partners in the F&B and waste management industries. GarGeon and
FOLO Farm’s partnership aims to create a whole movement of community and wellness by inspiring others to join them and form FOLO-type farms.
