Future Food Asia 2020 to reward agrifood innovations

Future Food Asia 2020 is an AgriFoodTech conference for the Asia–Pacific region that enables start-ups to present their innovations for industry recognition, which has been announced by ID Capital. The past three editions of Future Food Asia (FFA) have distributed US$1 million in awards and provided a platform to 38 start-ups to present their innovations.

The conference allows industry experts in the AgriFoodTech sector to share their views on industry opportunities and challenges. It will feature discussions about major challenges in the sector, such as the supply-side shocks caused by African Swine Flu and other biosecurity threats.

This year’s FFA, in collaboration with the Bühler Group and Givaudan, will also feature a Plant Protein Innovation Award and a Plant Protein Masterclass, which will provide some of the secrets of scaling plant-based food formulations and manufacturing.

“Future Food Asia Award fosters collaboration between multinational companies and start-ups in Singapore and in the Asia–Pacific region. This supports EDB’s efforts to develop Singapore as a leading centre to develop and commercialise agri-food tech solutions,” said Lee Eng Keat, Executive Director of Agrifood Commercial & Professional Services at the Singapore Economic Development Board.

Corteva Agriscience has joined FFA 2020 as a Title Partner. Corteva aims to establish a global analytics centre and an R&D lab in Singapore, using innovative approaches to make agriculture value chains more productive and sustainable. Dole Packaged Foods Worldwide has also partnered with FFA2020.

The FFA 2020 award event will be held in Singapore on 2 and 3 June 2020, where 10 finalists selected by the FFA jury will present their innovations and compete for the US$100,000 grand prize. Applications for the award are now open.
