About Future Food Asia 2021

We are proud to announce the launch of the 5th edition of Future Food Asia (FFA) Awards. Over the coming 5 months the FFA Jury will select 10 startup finalists compete for the US$ 100,000 grand prize. In the past four years FFA has acted as springboard for innovators and empowered 40+ early stage startups from Asia Pacific by providing them the stage to present their cutting-edge innovations and distributed over US$ 1 million in awards.

The startup finalists will showcase their innovations at the Future Food Asia 2021 Conference in June. The FFA Conference has become the voice of agrifood innovation in Asia Pacific, and brings together decision makers from leading agriculture and food corporations, influential investors, rising innovators and other key ecosystem players together.

As AgriFoodTech sector comes of age, the big promise of sustainability is about to move from a state of ‘theory’ to ‘assessment’. Talents from all walks of life start to come to agrifoodtech. All this is generating new approaches to building the future of food start to emerge and will fuel the FFA conversation in the coming months.
