FFA2020 Day 3 Highlights: Winner Winner (Plant-based) Chicken Dinner
Thank you for joining us for day 3 of Future Food Asia. Our highlight of the day was plant-based innovation:
In the afternoon we had our exclusive plant protein masterclass hosted by Bühler and Givaudan.
“We see a huge opportunity to move away from traditional meat sources and create delicious and fantastic alternatives…and here we see Singapore as a hotbed to enable us to drive this.” – Dr. Ian Roberts, Bühler
Thai Wah hosted their physical satellite venue in Bangkok, hosting a panel discussion on the future of FoodTech in Thailand, a presentation by Let’s Plant Meat, and a live chef session introducing plant-based meat as an ingredient.
We heard three more pitches by our FFA finalists:
AgriSea (United States): ocean agriculture company developing salt-tolerant crops to be grown in salt soils or coastal ocean waters
Flurosat (Australia): full crop cycle analytics provider for tracking, monitoring and managing crops
Fyto Foods (Singapore): developer of plant-based meat resembling uncut real meats when sliced or diced, with the look, taste and nutrition of real meat
And from our two winners of the Plant Protein Award:
DAIZ (Japan): developer and manufacturer of Miracle Meat, a plant-based ingredient derived from germinated soybeans
Let’s Plant Meat (Thailand): plant-based meat startup focused on research, manufacturing & building awareness of environmentally friendly meat alternatives.
