73% of Singaporeans today are keen to learn more about the brands they purchase, while 80% are willing to bear additional costs for a low-carbon Singapore. With more consumers considering nutritional and environmental factors in their food choices, there is a huge opportunity for innovation.
Food companies have been innovating healthier products such as snacks with low GI and high protein, building more sustainable businesses with biodegradable packaging, incorporating “ugly produce”, adopting ethical sourcing methods and more.
To better cater to the growing pool of health-conscious and socially responsible consumers around the world, you can develop healthy and eco-friendly products, and ensure your product labels accurately convey the ingredient origins and nutritional values.
As Singapore looks to be the Silicon Valley of food in a hungry Asia, we are housing a growing number of local food tech startups whose innovative solutions have boomed in recent years.
Plant-based and cell-based proteins require comparatively less space and resources to produce the same amount of food compared to traditional food sources, providing sustainable and nutritious alternatives for the world. Singapore was the first country in the world to approve lab-grown meat for sale in 2020 and continues to be a global leader in bringing novel food tech solutions to the table.
People consume food not only for survival or enjoyment, but also to proactively boost their health. Particularly in Asia, the elderly are a key growing demographic.
In Asia Pacific, the silver economy is projected to be worth US$4.6 trillion (S$6.2 trillion) by 2025, catering to 600 million seniors above 60. There are opportunities for you to create food products that address elderly needs in the areas of nutrition, texture, taste, and ease of preparation.
You can capitalise on the growing demand to supplement nutritional gaps for different demographics by creating products with tailored nutritional profiles and functional qualities. Some key trends for specialised nutrition in Asia include immunity-boosting foods, improved gut health, and demand for low-fat and low-sugar options.
The pandemic has placed a spotlight on food security, with supply chains for staple commodities coming under stress and global food prices hitting an all-time-high.
From food waste valorisation to the adoption of energy efficient solutions, there is a need to accelerate the use of technologies to scale domestic food production capabilities and ensure that our food sources are sustainable.
