When it comes to novel food regulations, SFA is in a league of its own.
In recent years, consumer demand for plant-based protein has often outpaced the industry’s supply chain capabilities. Failure to meet industry production targets may ultimately manifest in higher prices and limited availability to consumers.
A first-of-its-kind database from GFI APAC provides a broad view of the B2B ecosystem for plant-based meat production in Singapore.
New evidence suggests that Chinese leaders understand the massive benefits of making meat from plants and growing it directly from cells.
Cultivated meat—grown directly from cells, rather than farming animals—has been sold in limited quantities around Singapore since late 2020. But to scale up and reach plates everywhere, the industry needs to be supported by a thriving ecosystem of existing manufacturing companies, which already have the infrastructure to mass-produce products for their partners.
In a historic decision, Nanyang Technological University (NTU)—one of the top universities in Asia—has approved a new undergraduate course titled “Future Foods - Introduction to Advanced Meat Alternatives.”
