Future Food Asia Award is a new event, which aims to show off Asia-Pacific’s newest and most promising startup companies that are supported by the Economic Development Board of Singapore.
The FFAA is a platform for identifying and promoting innovative new technologies and startups in the food and agritech areas in Asia-Pacific. FFAA is born out of the belief that agriculture challenges are often region-specific, and thus, the best minds to tackle these problems can be found within local teams. The world has battled with the supply and delivery of food for centuries. This issue will only become more challenging. Also, because of the rising middle class, changing food consumption patterns, and land scarcity, we need new solutions to improve food productivity sustainably.
The competition will be open from January 2017 until April 2017 and the applicants will be evaluated by an international panel of judges, and finalists will be invited to present to an audience containing investors, corporations, and technology teams (amongst many others).
The award event, held in May of 2017 in Singapore, will also feature distinguished keynote speakers on the topic of food and agriculture technology and sustainability.
