Virtual event

About this event

AgTech was already one of the most talked-about startup sectors before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but the crisis is accelerating what was already seen as a major shift in food production, logistics and consumption trends. Singapore for instance, had already announced in 2019 its '30 by 30' strategy which aims for 30% of food needs to be locally produced by 2030 and was well on the path to transforming the industry to meet those targets before COVID-19 struck.

Around the world, the demand for plant based substitutes and meat alternatives is growing substantially each year, with a number of startups in the region and abroad capitalizing on this trend. With that growth, comes more demand for vegetables - both from consumers and companies. Couple this with the threat of climate change, growing population trends and urbanization and you have a confluence of events that have given rise to new businesses and companies changing the way we farm, source and consume our food.

So what exactly is it like being on the frontlines of this change? Join us on July 16th at 7:30pm SGT for a discussion with Andrew Shearer, Founder and CEO of Farmshelf; Stuart Oda, Founder and CEO of Alesca Life and Vikas Garg, Founder and CEO of abillionveg - leaders of three companies changing the way we grow, transport and consume vegetables and food all over the world.
