THE NEW AGE FARMERS

Our Tale

At nature’s hug we are passionate about the growth of sustainable and traceable products. Being farmers ourselves, we take special pride in producing and distributing from our local farms right here in Singapore. We aim to be the primary importer and supplier of traceable products that are free from chemicals, additives, and genetic modification. We distribute to acclaimed restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores.

Sustainability Statement

 

Nature’s hug sources all products in accordance to the following guidelines:

  • We operate with transparency and require the same from our suppliers overseas
  • We measure our energy usage and operate on renewable energy
  • We are dedicated to staying informed on all issues that affect the sustainability of our industry.

As a supplier of sustainable seafood, we pay immense attention to the long-term survival of fish species and their ecosystems. Choosing to consume sustainable seafood will not only be of benefit to your health and the environment, but also help support our industry's goal of feeding the world.

 

 

 

Sustainable

SEAFOOD

Health benefits:

 

Seafood is nutrient-rich, serves as a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals and is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Fish that are caught unsustainably are usually species higher up on the food-chain where higher concentrations of toxic pollution are absorbed.

 

 

Environmental benefits:

 

Fisheries are removing fish from the oceans faster than they can reproduce. Almost 75% of the world’s fisheries are either fully exploited, overexploited or have collapsed. Sustainable aquaculture lessens the stress on the environment.

 

 

Feeding the world:

 

Marine aquaculture has the ability to produce 16.5 billion tons of fish per year, which is more than enough to feed the growing population and to meet the nutritional needs of people worldwide.

Sustainable agriculture is a way to grow food in a manner that does not have an adverse effect on the environment and that is healthy for consumers, animals and land on which it is grown or raised on. It also takes into consideration the health and welfare of workers, which supports and gives back to the local community. Sustainable agriculture is not only about conserving but preserving as well. As a rule of thumb, sustainable agriculture believes what gets taken out of the environment should be put back into the environment.

Health benefits:

 

How your food is grown or raised can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts. Organic products are free from GMOs, pesticides, and most importantly are fresher and taste better.

 

 

Environmental benefits:

 

Organic farming is better for the environment because it reduces pollution, conserves water, and uses less energy. Not only does organic farming build healthy soil, but also combats serious soil and issues like erosion. Organic farming helps preserve more natural habitat areas and encourages birds and other natural predators to live happily on farmland and serve as a natural pest control.

Our eggs are imported from our own farm in Thailand. We are GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certified. GAP is a voluntary audit that verifies our eggs are produced, packed, handled and sored as safely as possible to minimize risks of microbial food safety hazards. GAP ensures that practices address environmental, economic and social sustainability for on farm-processes and results in safe and quality food agricultural products.

Health benefits:

 

Eggs are a nutrient goldmine and very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. One large egg has different amounts of 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high – quality protein, all for just 70 calories.

 

While egg whites contain some of the eggs’ high-quality protein, riboflavin and selenium, the majority of an egg’s nutrient package is found in the yolk. Nutrients such as:

 

  • Vitamin D, critical for bone health and immune function. Eggs are one of the only foods that naturally contain vitamin D.

 

  • Choline, essential for normal functioning of all cells, but particularly important during pregnancy to support healthy brain development of the fetus.

 

  • Lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that are believed to reduce the risk of developing cataracts and slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration, a disease that develops with age.
