Feed 9 Billion is proud to announce the introduction of the Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week – The Future of Food at the Singapore Food Festival (SFF) 2022 (24 August to 11 September 2022). The sustainable foods section is a welcome one to the longest running, nation-wide, annual food festival, in light of global food supply concerns brought on by the pandemic. Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week is held as part of SFF 2022, and supported by Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
About Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week, this is the world’s first food technology section in any restaurant week in the world to be launched. Showcasing sustainable, new technology foods across a range of plant-based meat and food alternatives from 14 food technology suppliers and 11 restaurant brands who will be curating a special food technology menu for this week, consumers will be able to get their first taste of some of these brands and new food products never before launched in the market.
Feed 9 Billion has gathered 14 local food brands in food innovation and sustainability and 11 restaurants and chains to collaborate and create unique menus that will showcase new food forms to consumers for the first time in Singapore’s history. With menus featuring plant-based beef and chicken from local food technology companies and the world-first soy alcoholic beverage, Feed 9 Billion hopes to attract diners to sample and give feedback on their impressions of the food. This feedback will help local manufacturers to further improve on their products, as well as pave the way for more dining establishments to embark on serving sustainable foods in the near future. Consumers will be able to sample these introductory dishes at 16 outlets island-wide from specially-curated food innovation menus created by these pioneering restaurants. These dishes include 1826’s Truffle Beef Mushroom Tart using Thoughtful Foods plant-based meats, Love Handle’s Yaki Udon using Kosmode Health’s W0W® Noodle and their in-house plant- based minced meat, Yum Cha’s Chicken Dumplings in Chilli Oil using Shandi Global’s plant-based chicken, and many more restaurants and dishes.
