Did you know that Singapore wasted S$2,000,000,000 worth of food in just 2014 alone? Or did you know that Singapore's obesity rate was at 11% in 2014, a 50% spike in obese individuals compared to 2010 due to unhealthier diets?

If you feel strongly for those issues and want to incite change, then this is the event for you! Hear from our expert panelists from Food Bank Singapore, Gone Adventurin and Croeni Foundation as they share about their initiatives such as Makanpreneur, the first sustainable food entrepreneurship programme in South-East Asia, which offers a comprehensive and hands-on support for the next generation of food entrepreneurs to launch their own start-ups.

Take advantage of this opportunity to engage in a panel discussion and Q&A with the experts to improve your understanding of the trends, challenges and opportunities in this sprouting industry.

Furthermore, look forward to mingle with like minded participants from our #SOIMPACT Bootcamp, who are working on their own food-related initatives, and perhaps even trigger potential collaborations to make a bigger social impact in the food sustainability industry.
