The Frank food Company is extremely lucky to have partnered with our farming group led by Emily Sutanto from Bloom Agro. Not only are they the first veggie farm in Indonesia to receive international Organic Certifications from the EU & Japan, they're just great people to work with.
The location is great for 2 reasons. The first is the because they located in an elevated position between Volcanoes Merapi and Merbabu providing nutrient rich soil in which almost anything grows. The second is the location in the region. The farm is located less than 2 hours north of Yogyakarta meaning we can get vegetables to Singapore quickly without long freight journeys. Better for the veggies and better for the environment.
So no one in the business(yet) is actually named Frank! We wanted to pick a name that represented our approach to working with food and farmers. Open, honest or Frank if you will.
With Duncan’s background in restaurants and Liam’s in marketing we have both seen large corporate food companies muddy the waters with on-pack images of happy farms or using words like ‘organic’ or ‘farm fresh’. Built into the Frank DNA (and name) is a promise to be brutally honest about the source of our produce, the farming methods practised and the compensation for hard work the farmers put in. We do our best to deliver on this promise by featuring the farmers in videos, spending time at the farms ourselves and inviting customers to visit the farms themselves. Get in touch if you are interested in visiting.
So setting up a farm on the side of an active volcano seems doesn’t seem the greatest idea. But there is a good reason for it. The ash produced by volcanoes creates a soil condition called Andisols. These are nutrient rich, allow ease of root penetration and have excellent water holding capacity.

Duncan is a veteran chef with stints in some of the world's most famous kitchens. His focus is on food sourcing & sustainability food production. Currently based in Ubud Bali Duncan closely works with local food producers in Indonesia
The boxes contain over 45 varieties of vegetables weighing a minimum of 4kg for Small, 6kg for a Regular & 12 Kg for Large boxes. Our combination of vegetables changes seasonally, however we do our best to ensure mainstay items like carrots, broccoli, tomato & kale are included each week
You are able to select for a Tuesday or Thursday delivery - both are delivered between 3pm - 7pm.
In order to work with small batch farmers and receive premium produce we believe that the subscription model works best to give farmers steady consistent orders and customers who are willing to take in-season items.
The vegetables have an organic certification from either the EU, Japanese & USDA bodies. Items that don’t come from the same location and the same farming practices are used but they were not submitted for approval in the first round due to budget constraints. We expect these items to be certified some time this yea
At this stage, no. The boxes are packed at the source and to ensure speed of delivery we do not allow customisations
You can pause your subscription for up to 1 month at any time. This can be easily done by logging into your account and clicking “subscription” in your personal settings
Typically vegetables are delivered to customers in Singapore within 12 hours of leaving the farm. Vegetables are usually picked the day before delivery ensuring freshness
Yes you can cancel at anytime. Firstly pause your subscription and we’ll be in touch to assist.
