About This Webinar

 

Last month the Embassy of Spain and the Spanish-Singaporean Chamber of Commerce in Singapore launched a series of Dialogues about different topics of interest for Spain and Singapore. After a first Dialogue related to the oil and gas industry, we invite you to our second Dialogue on the Agrifood Tech industry.

Food production needs technological transformation in response to the restriction of resources, sustainability and biodiversity requirements, changing consumer habits, population growth, climate change and Covid-19 crisis threatening the international and local supply chains. In the context of the Covid-19 crisis, the collaboration between countries, sharing knowledge, proposals and innovation, makes more sense than ever before.

Spain has developed a strong R&D focus in the agriculture and food industry, adding competitiveness to its world leadership on agrifood exports. Spanish innovation meets quality, new alternative food, resilience and traceability.

Singapore also faces relevant challenges. Singapore is strengthening its food security and supply chain by setting the “30 by 30” national goal aiming at producing 30% of their food consumption by 2030. It will include new foods and alternative proteins, urban agriculture solutions, and above all boosting industrial productivity in the agri-food sector increasing the satisfaction of consumers.

In this panel, you will be able to meet and listen to two important players, Ms Yee Ting Wong from A*STAR and Mr Jorge Saludes from AINIA. The moderator, Mr Carlos Bonet, from AM FRESH, will guide and manage the discussion that will include also two presentations by the Spanish startup EKONOKE and the Singaporean startup DIMUTO.

A*STAR is the Singaporean Agency for Science, Technology and Research. It drives mission-oriented research that advances scientific discovery and technological innovation. It is a catalyst, enabler and convenor of significant research initiatives among the research community in Singapore and beyond.

AINIA is a Spanish Food Technological Centre and Food Industry Research Association, an institution promoted and managed by companies to perform applied research for the benefit of the industry and consumers. Its activity is based on the use of the best knowledge and the creation of solutions for all kind of food processors.

AM FRESH is a company specialized in fresh products that are delivered all around the world, devoted to innovation and technology.
