After graduating from Purdue University in US with a Bachelor Degree in Industrial Engineering, Samantha Gunawan traveled around Indonesia and realised that not much effort and research done to help the local farming industry. Noticing as well that the current market was leaning towards a more conscious lifestyle, Samatha decided to explore the rich biodiversity of Indonesia’s agriculture by starting Blueboots Farm in 2015. Her dream was to make sustainable farming the coolest and most profitable profession of the future.
Currently, Blueboots have developed products that are minimally processed and using the freshest and safest ingredients, with no added artificial flavours, preservatives or colourings. They have also opened their farm to the public to allow them to experience the different possibilities of what the farm can offer both recreationally and educationally.
Blueboots’ goal is simple: to supply wholesome, locally sourced and sustainable food products: they creates products that are nutritious and delicious while using ingredients sourced from local farmers in Cijeruk, Bogor area. All while being mindful of the environment and keeping the carbon footprint to a minimal in the farming and processing methods that are used.
As Blueboots has shared “at the end of the day, what you choose matters. The way food is produced and consumed has and will become a testament to how we live. So let’s make a better choice for this earth, which has given us so much.”
