To showcase local capabilities and set an exemplary model for the industry in the region, the new FoodTech Zone at the upcoming FHA-Food & Beverage, held 31 March to 3 April 2020 at Singapore Expo will underline best-of-breed agriculture and food innovations that have been making waves across and beyond Singapore.

Visitors at the FoodTech Zone will get to see latest innovations in agri-tech, aqua-tech, food science, process, packaging and automation technologies, refrigeration and air-conditioning technology, transport storage, logistics, sustainable packaging and food waste, from exhibitors such as BioPak Sustainable Solutions, Detpak Packaging, D-Logic Refrigeration, Epromas International, Japan Seiko Glass, Mill Powder Tech, Multivac, Newtech Machinery, SEPA Korea Corp and TUV SUD PSB, amongst others.

Beyond the exhibits, visitors can stay on to catch additional features such as specialised showcases and seminars to keep engaged throughout. These features include:

FoodTech 4.0 Pavilion — showcasing the leading products and services for digitalisation, automation, aquaculture, sustainability, food waste, urban farming and more. Also housed within is the Dreamcatcher Theatre, a creative seminar space for thought leaders from Feed9B, GS1, Impossible Foods, Sustenir, The Good Food Institute, WWF and many others to share their insights and perspectives on agri-tech, blockchain, food tech, investments, start-up ecosystem and market opportunities for the industry.

FoodTech Start-up Village — Located within the FoodTech 4.0 Pavilion, the FoodTech Start-Up Village is a community gathering of innovative and cutting-edge solution providers supported by venture capitalists such as AgFunder, Atlas Ventures, Big Idea Ventures, DSG Consumer Partners, GROW and Innovate360, among others. These young entrepreneurs will get to network with the pioneers in the food tech space and will be invited to pitch new ideas to a panel of experts on the Pitching Floor.

“With the accelerated need for countries and regions in Asia to produce enough food in order to sustain rising populations, comes the demand for new and innovative ways to produce food locally, and preferably in an environmental-friendly way. In Asia we have already witnessed some instances of sustainable food production and packaging, and the new FoodTech Zone is therefore designed with the sole purpose of underlining some of the recent innovations and best practices by the industry for our attendees at FHA-Food & Beverage,” said Mr. Martyn Cox, Event Director, FHA-Food & Beverage.

“A great brand should resonate with the ethos of today’s modern consumer. Alternative protein, food waste, and environmental sustainability are more than just fads. These are relevant topics modern consumers truly care about, creating potential for tremendous growth in the food tech space,” said Mr. Nadim Muzayyin, Analyst at DSG Consumer Partners — a leading Southeast Asian & Indian consumer focused venture fund. “We are especially excited to be speaking at the Food Innovation Theatre and participating in the pitching panel at the FoodTech 4.0 pavilion at FHA-Food & Beverage. This is a great opportunity for everyone in the industry as we get to engage with new startups and young entrepreneurs who need the exposure and experience for their future growth.”
