By developing environmentally sustainable technologies, Mr Gordon Tam Chi-ho has been a pioneer of urban innovative farming in Hong Kong. He founded Farm66 in 2013, which has used its patented indoor aquaponics farming ecosystem to grow stable, organic and high quality agricultural products for airline caterers, supermarkets and local consumers. Its digital agriculture solutions enable vegetables to be grown in scalable farming factories free from weather impact, pests and bacteria, as well as space limitations. Mr Tam’s vision of agri-tech struck a chord – in 2017, Farm66 beat 600 applicants and won Alibaba’s JUMPSTARTER campaign, becoming one of the three honorees that received a grant of HK$1 million. It went on to earn various accolades, including being listed among Forbes Asia 100 To Watch 2021.
