Explore The Impact Of Tech In Food & Drink At SFFA And RPB Asia's SG Food Tech Week

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Highlights include investor pitching sessions, panel discussions with industry experts and face time with top buyers

Explore the latest developments in food technologies and how they are revolutionising various facets of the speciality food and drink industries at Speciality & Fine Food Asia (SFFA) 2019 and Restaurant, Pub & Bar Asia (RPB Asia) 2019’s inaugural SG Food Tech Week.

SG Food Tech Week, developed in consultation with Edelman Predictive Intelligence Centre, will bring together the top minds in food and beverage technologies and consultancies with policy makers to uncover key challenges and opportunities in this space. The keynote session and panel discussions will focus on topics like blockchain and its impact on supply chain management, big data trends and smart manufacturing and how to balance the power of predictive technologies with consumer privacy*. Themes for each session will also be co-curated by SFFA and RPB Asia’s panel of Industry Ambassadors to ensure that the content is relevant and tailored to the specific needs of C-suite, senior management and policy makers from the region.

Jonathan Hargreaves, Vice Chairman, Edelman Predictive Intelligence Centre says, “Predictive data and technologies are integral to doing business in today’s landscape. It is now vital for companies, in addition to learning how to utilise and implement such technologies, to understand their target consumers’ interaction with big data and intelligence. This will then help determine what customers really want, the type of data and technology needed to grow the business and more importantly, build consumer trust.”

Start-ups and SMEs in this space will also be invited to showcase their latest technologies in the second installment of the highly successful investor pitching series PITCH!. The competition will focus on spotlighting the latest technological solutions and innovations that tackle pressing hospitality challenges, streamline workflow and address the need for sustainability in various food production processes, providing contestants with valuable face time with industry heavyweights, investors and mentors. Call for entries will be launched soon on the event websites.

“Food and technology have become increasingly interconnected over the years with the impact of new technologies on this industry far reaching and diverse. SG Food Tech Week provides accessible ways for food producers and brands to do a deep dive and explore which technologies work best for their business,” says Christopher McCuin, Managing Director of Montgomery Asia. “Through PITCH!, start-ups in the food technology field will also have the opportunity to bring to the table cutting-edge technologies and innovations and present them to potential investors to secure new distribution channels and funding. This is such an exciting time for our industry, and we look forward to discovering more of such revolutionary and disruptive technologies at the shows.”


SFFA and RPB Asia will be held from 17 – 19 July 2019 at Suntec Singapore. Details on the keynote and panel sessions can be found here. More information on keynote and panel speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
