#082 – Ting Feng: Kula Ai & the Future of Agriculture

  • October 9, 2018

 

Did you know we’re living in the future?

 

It became crystal clear for me during this conversation with Ting Feng, CEO & co-founder of Kula Ai & the Kulafoods App. Kula Ai is an Australian-based Agriculture tech startup that’s creating sustainable tech to find new ways to feed the world.

 

“We want to find a new way to feed the world.” –Ting Feng

 

They are using two technology-driven approaches to accomplish this forking huge task: the @Kulafoods app that connects users to all of the sustainable and healthy food vendors in their community and the soon-to-be-launched @KulaHarvest, a series of AI-powered urban farming hardware.

 

All I can say is wow. The future is now, and I’m all for it!

 

“My passion has always been to help hardworking members of communities, like the food producers, to have a platform, to have a voice, and to showcase their craft so that it’s equally as competitive as those selling in supermarkets” –Ting Feng

 

We also discuss:

  • Why they chose the name ‘Kula Ai’ & how the company came to be
  • Aspiring to create the world’s first sustainable food grid
  • How the Kulafoods app works
  • Building healthy communities, one city at a time
  • Launching in LA and NYC in the near future
  • Growing up on an organic farm
  • How the way we eat affects everything else we do
  • Do we want to eat ingredients or chemicals?
  • Urban agriculture is the future
  • The future of Kula
  • What it was like at Ting’s dinner table growing up

The word “Kula” means community in the Sanskrit language and we believe the access to nutritious food should be a basic human right.

I love the world of food and beverage, everything about it, it’s soo damn sexy! Every time we eat and drink it ignites us sensually…the look, texture, taste, smell, sound all in a unique combination, encapsulating a moment in time. The act of sharing a meal with friends, chatting, eating, and drinking together is so forking perfect. It is a feeling that echoes a sense that All Is Good! Very, Very good!
