About Future Food Asia 2021

As the AgriFoodTech sector comes of age, its 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, generating new approaches to building the future of food. The sector just looks different – we aptly coined this phase  AgriFoodTech2.0 and made it the theme for the 2021 edition of the Future Food Asia conference.

The FFA 2021 conference was hosted from June 7-11, convening executives from leading corporations, emerging entrepreneurs, key investors, sector experts and many other agrifood industry stakeholders.

Over the course of 5 days we explored the catalysts that have helped propel the sector into its 2.0 version and what it holds in store for the entrepreneurs, investors and corporations in the ecosystem. FFA2021 also hosted an innovation showcase from 10 leading start-ups that are building solutions to increase the sustainability of Asia Pacific’s agrifood supply chain.

With a focus on disruptive solutions to overcome the hurdles on the path to a more sustainable food future in Asia Pacific, the jury named Allozymes and Senior Deli as co-winners of the 2021 Future Food Asia Award. This was the first instance of an announcement of co-winners at Future Food Asia, a testament to the quality of the start-up finalists and overall maturity of the agrifoodtech sector.
