Want to scale your agri-tech business to the next level? The vibrant agri-tech industry in Singapore offers these programmes and resources that can help you catalyse innovation and scalable solutions to meet evolving needs.
Companies in the aquaculture industry can access a centralised platform of resources at Singapore’s Aquaculture Innovation Centre (AIC), one of our ten Centres of Innovation (COI). Led by Temasek Polytechnic, AIC is the first COI to be run as a consortium by different partner institutions and government agencies, and offers expertise, infrastructure and manpower from existing industry players.
AIC will drive R&D, innovation partnerships and training in nutrition, disease management and the breeding of superfish. The centre also seeks to raise industry standards through product testing, certifications and quality standards development.
You can tap complementary strengths and accelerate the development of sustainable aquaculture solutions to serve both the domestic and export markets. Find out how you can work with AIC here.
Our vision is to develop Singapore into a globally-recognised leader in sustainable urban food solutions and food safety. The Singapore Food Story (SFS) R&D Programme, led by Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), was established to turn our food challenges into strategic advantages and strengthen our food security and food safety.
The programme promotes the development of productive, climate-resilient, innovative and sustainable technologies for agriculture and aquaculture, as well as new biotech-based foods and ingredients.

To support the transformation of the agri-food sector into one that is highly productive, climate-resilient and resource-efficient, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) announced a S$60 million Agri-Food Cluster Transformation (ACT) Fund during its Committee of Supply (COS) speech in March 2021. The ACT will support agri-food tech firms’ efforts in (i) Technology Upscaling, (ii) Innovation and Test-bedding, and (iii) Capability Upgrading.
The ACT Fund replaces the Agriculture Productivity Fund (APF) with several enhancements to better support local farms to achieve Singapore’s “30 by 30” goal. Find out more on the ACT Fund here.
As you innovate and develop your products to cater to the local and international markets, you can adopt relevant food safety standards to maintain the quality and trust in your products and processes. These standards include ISO 22000: Food Safety Management System, and Global Food Safety Initiatives (GFSI) such as FSSC 22000 Food Safety Systems.
Learn about why standards matter in the food industry, and how they can help your business expand into new markets and boost customer confidence.
