Investor Pitching Series – Innovative F&B Products

In the dynamic world of F&B where the landscape is constantly changing due to increasing affluence, a well-travelled millennial generation that is increasingly looking for unique personalised experiences, tech disruptions and more, brand owners and producers need to continually innovate to stay ahead of the game.

If you have an exciting product that is set to transform the landscape, inspire a new consumption trend or simply enable F&B producers and retailers to scale up, we invite you to submit your entry and stand a chance to turn your ideas into reality!

Shortlisted teams will get the opportunity of a lifetime to pitch to a panel of judges from the retail, foodservice and tech industries in a focused trade environment, and stand the chance to have the ideas or products taken onboard.

Entries will be accepted from the following categories:

– A product prototype
– An actual product that is ready for the shelves
– A brand new flavour or design
– A groundbreaking packaging concept or technology that can help to extend a product’s shelf life

Date : 17 July 2018, Wednesday
Time : 5pm – 6.30pm
