Over 200 international exhibitors are expected at the Agri-Food Tech Expo Asia (AFTEA), which is part of Singapore’s first focussed exhibition platform for emerging and established agri-food players in Asia.

The event, organised by Constellar with DLG (German Agricultural Society), is a key event of the Singapore International Agri-Food Week which will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Halls A and B between 26 and 28 October.

Agriculture is a key economic sector in Southeast Asia which the World Bank said accounted for 11 percent of ASEAN’s gross domestic product in 2020.
However, rising shortage of agricultural land, climate change, farm labour shortage stemming from Covid-19 and supply chain disruptions have impacted agricultural production in the region.

There is a critical need for collective action and expertise to accelerate the pace of technology adoption and innovation in the region, said Jean-François Quentin, Group Chief Executive Officer for Constellar.

Thus, AFTEA plays an essential role in catalysing and facilitating connections between the agri-food tech community, he added.

AFTEA’s inaugural edition spotlights knowledge sharing and technology solutions to address farming and food supply challenges to improve quality, efficiency and output of agricultural processes, increase crop yield and self-reliance.

Several worldwide and regional launches of agri-tech solutions and innovations can be expected in agriculture, food processing and packaging, food safety and security, novel food technologies, plant-based and alternative proteins, and more.

In addition, industry experts, leaders and stakeholders can participate in targeted engagement platforms, to empower them to make better informed decisions when exploring solutions and collaborations.

These platforms include a specially-curated Sandbox and the Living Lab, as well as Constellar’s signature business matching and hosted buyer programme.
