Estimated to be worth $36.61 billion by 2029, the alternative protein market will be heavily influenced by Asia’s large population and increasing appetite for meat and protein. Since the global food system accounts for 26% of current global greenhouse gas emissions, investing in alternative proteins has one of the biggest impacts on decarbonization, with the highest CO2 savings per dollar of any sector (WeForum), and APA is the natural progression for companies that address climate change while targeting affluent consumers in Asia’s markets.

Exhibiting food tech companies include global players like Impossible Foods, Harvest Gourmet, First Pride, Big Idea Ventures, Finnebrogue, Tindle, Oatside, GrowthWell, Shiok Meats and many others.

APA’s exciting four-day conference program is highlighting the now and next for the industry, with over 40 thought leaders and experts from Good Food Institute (GFI), Nestle, Tyson Foods, Accor, AgFunder VC, CSIRO, GlobalData, Euromonitor, NTUC Fairprice, SaladStop!, SuperMeat, TurtleTree Labs, Singapore Management University (SMU), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), Innovate360, The Trendlines Group, Green Rebel Foods and more.

APA will also host the inaugural Big Idea Food Competition (BIFC), created by Big Idea Ventures, which will shine a spotlight on the best plant-based food entrepreneurs in Asia with the winner clinching an investment prize of US$200,000 at the finals.
