Dear Food Enthusiasts and Change-makers,
 
We are delighted to announce the
2022 FUTURE FOODTECH FESTIVAL (FFF2022) - this inclusive first-of-its-kind hybrid premier event is proudly organized by the Thought For Food Southeast Asia Regional Hub.  This highly-anticipated event will introduce the exciting, delicious, and innovative foods that are helping to build a more inclusive and sustainable food system across Southeast Asia and the world. The Future FoodTech Festival will combine important conversations about the changing food industry while showcasing the latest and greatest alternative proteins and plant-based foods.

 

The 6-day Future FoodTech Festival starting from 6-11 January 2022 is scheduled to take center stage in the famous foodie city of Kuala Lumpur on 8-9 January 2022 at the Publika Kuala Lumpur, and in partnership with UEM Sunrise. It is free and open to the public.


The Future FoodTech Festival is a key part of the journey to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) that is focused on #TogetherForOurPlanet and #OneStepGreener. The event also supports the outcomes of the World Food Forum and TFF Global Summit 2021, which will took place in Rome, Italy on 2 October 2021.
 
The FFF 2022 is most timely and relevant with rising concern about our planet’s future food security which has triggered the search for alternative sustainable sources of food. 
The Festival seeks to spark discussion on 3 broad focuses:

  • food and innovation that will deliver safer and tastier products;

  • concerns over climate change and the environment caused by current world food production systems;

  • greater access to a lifestyle that includes nutritious, safe and ethically-produced foods.


Additionally, through the intervention of this festival, TFF wishes to add value by coordinating activities across stakeholders throughout the entire market ecosystem and contributing to market-shaping so as to transform the existing system and create efficiencies that lead to better health for everyone. We anticipate a high degree of participation from governments, investors, NGOs, academic institutions, and private companies,  which are well-poised to use their influence, financing, and expertise to accelerate the success of the alternative protein industry. 
 
The Festival aims to bring together FMCG & CPG leaders, agropreneurs, researchers, investors, food ingredient developers, retailers, and foodservice providers to power up the unlimited possibilities of innovation and breakthrough technologies, and to co-create the enabling ecosystem and supply chain to scale up innovative solutions of next-gen alternative proteins, in particular, plant-based foods, as well as to heighten public awareness of alternative proteins and promote the education of future foodtech.
 
The Festival will also bring together local, regional, and global players and producers who will showcase their products in the MarketPlace. Whether you have an alternative protein product offering or looking to launch into the growing alternative protein space, this event will open up the floodgate of information and partnerships to facilitate success. 
 
We have developed a series of premium programmes with your interests in mind. You will gain valuable opportunities for you to network with participants from across the world and also be introduced to the Alternative Proteins platform via live discussions and interaction with industry leaders and experts.
 
Join us in this purposeful and impactful journey of Future FoodTech, and network with the movers and shakers of the industry to exchange expertise and experiences, and arm yourself with the latest information to take your future food adventures to the next level.
 
We look forward to warmly welcoming you to the 2022 Future FoodTech Festival

 
Sincerely,
2022 Future FoodTech Organizing Team
