Singapore International Agri-Food Week (SIAW) returns for its third edition from 30 October to 2 November to showcase the latest innovations in sustainable food production in the region’s agri-food industry.
It will also spotlight decarbonisation initiatives to support companies in their transition to net zero emissions.
Held at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, SIAW is a focused platform for knowledge exchange, opportunities exploration, networking and collaboration to bolster food security and strengthen supply chains for the region.
The event is hosted by global investment leader Temasek and co-hosted by the Singapore Food Agency, in partnership with Economic Development Board, Enterprise Singapore, Singapore Tourism Board, Agency for Science, Technology and Research and event organisers, Constellar and Rethink Events.
Temasek International agri-food head, Mr Anuj Maheshwari, said: “Together as an industry, we need to co-create and catalyse solutions that can help feed a growing and discerning population.”
“In addition, the agrifood sector is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change. We can play a significant role to advance our efforts to decarbonise food systems globally and especially in Asia.”
IAW will open with a by-invite-only Roundtable on Novel Food Regulations, hosted by the Singapore Food Agency.
Focusing on accelerating the transition to a climate-smart food system – notable speakers for the Summit include Sunny Verghese, Executive Director, Co-Founder and Group CEO of OLAM, and Joseph Taets, Senior Vice President and President of APAC.
AFTEA will see a gathering of innovators from countries such as Singapore, China, France, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, the United Kingdom and more, who will be showcasing their innovations and developments in the agri-tech space.
These include Aerosprings Hydroponics, Siemens and Nutricell, amongst others. New national and regional pavilions joining this year include Western Australia, Bhutan and Spain.
