WHY ASIA?

Asia represents one of the fastest growing markets in the world, with 66% of the global middle class expected to reside in the region and a population expected to reach 5 billion in 2050 that will account for 60% of global consumption.  It's estimated that Asia will more than double its total spend on food over the next decade, from US$4 trillion in 2019 to over US$8 trillion by 2030.
 

To meet this demand, governments across the region are aggressively pursuing strategies to ensure greater food security and this includes actively encouraging agrifoodtech and innovative food entrepreneurs to help grow the local ecosystem by establishing themselves in the region. 

By 2050 the population of Asia will be 5 billion,

accounting for 60% of global consumption.
