Designing sustainable food systems for a better future

Global warming, along with land and water use, resource waste, biodiversity loss, animal welfare, food security, and sustainability are just a few of the global issues we currently face. These problems are all exacerbated by the increase in demand for animal-based products. A global shift in diets is urgently needed in order to ensure a sustainable future.


In this webinar, Shirley Lu, Managing Director of Asia for ProVeg International, will be talking to a policy maker from Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), along with food-industry professionals from Beyond MeatNestle, and Oatly who will share their visions and strategies for the future of plant-based innovation. The webinar will include a Q&A session with all participants, providing a unique opportunity for the audience to have their questions answered by experts.


Participants will come away with an in-depth understanding of food innovation and future market trends.



  • Dr Ralph Graichen: Senior Director, Food & Consumer at Biomedical Research Council (BMRC), A*STAR, will discuss Singapore’s ‘30 by 30 vision’, a policy to improve the country’s food security by producing 30% of its nutritional needs by 2030, up from less than 10% when the policy was launched in 2019.

  • Fred Zhu: New Product Development Director, Asia, Oatly
