FHA-Food & Beverage 2020 to entice with new FoodTech Zone

The highly-anticipated FHA-Food &Beverage show will showcase the new FoodTech Zone to highlight best-of-breed agriculture and food innovations that have been making waves across and beyond Singapore. 
From novel farming methods to connected kitchens, the technological and investment potential in the food tech space has grown dynamically in recent years. In Singapore, the government is building a food tech start-up ecosystem as part of the nation's plan to become an innovation hub for Asian food and agriculture sectors. The republic is also encouraging companies — from food and beverage corporations to agri-food entrepreneurs and start-ups to invest in the development of innovative solutions from food production to distribution.
"With the accelerated need for countries and regions in Asia to produce enough food to sustain rising populations, comes the demand for new and innovative ways to produce food locally, and preferably in an environmental-friendly way," said Martyn Cox, event director, FHA-Food & Beverage. "FoodTech Zone is 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."
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 the three-day show. 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 pitch new ideas to a panel of experts on the Pitching Floor.

NYP Learning Studio - Aimed at promoting continuous learning and reskilling, the NYP Learning Studio will focus on developing manpower capabilities, enhancing skills and competencies, and improving productivity for the food & hospitality sector.

 “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 the potential for tremendous growth in the food tech space," said Nadim Muzayyin, analyst at DSG Consumer Partners – a 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 start-ups and young entrepreneurs who need the exposure and experience for their future growth.”
