The Biggest Disruption in Food is Approaching….Are You Ready?
We are witnessing the early stages of the largest disruption in food production patterns since the industrial revolution and the discovery of NPK (Nitrogen Potassium, and Phosphorous) in fertilisers.
So what’s changed lately? Why the sudden rise? Having nurtured a vegetarian & vegan community of 2000 members since 2009, I observed the motivation for change.
While the traditional reasons were religion or animal ethics, new motivators like health, sustainability and food justice started to grow. I presented these at the US World Vegfest in 2012.
Today, major institutions and government bodies are accelerating the change with the focus on the environment and health.
But, as Margaret Mead said
"it is easier to change a man’s religion than to change his diet"
Hence the need for animal-free proteins and this summit.
The Disruption in Food & Sustainability Summit (DFSS) is bringing industry and thought leaders in the plant-based meat space. I attended the summit last year and made valuable connections from South East Asia. Here are my highlights from 2018.
And how businesses can utilise innovation, partnerships and technology as enablers.
Keynote speakers include:
Just to name a few.
It warms my heart to see an Asian country taking the lead in holding this type of summit in APAC Region.
DFSS is the Flagship event of the Alliance for a Responsible Future (ARF), a corporate engagement programme in Singapore that aims to create a platform for plant-based companies and organisations looking to be greener and healthier to reach out to the plant-based & sustainability-conscious community.
