Welcome​ Message

Food security is a key national priority by many governments around the world. Singapore’s vulnerability is compounded by our limited farmland and high dependency on imported food. Enhancing our food security is of critical importance as the global food production is under mounting pressure from the rapid population growth and increasing impact of climate change. Technological innovations, from modern farming technology to reducing food wastage through novel processing technology, are needed for our current food industry.

With its strong interdisciplinary teaching and research credentials in Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is best positioned to contribute to the national effort to strengthen our food security. NTU food technology innovations have attracted significant interest and recognition from government agencies and food industry, and are well aligned with our government’s vision of achieving 30% of nutrition requirements from local food production by 2030 (30 by 30).

Food Science & Technology Global 2021 (FST Global 2021) aims to bring together FST experts from local and overseas institutions to share their research and innovation, and nurture new partnership and collaboration. The conference will be graced by the Guest of Honour, Ms Grace Fu, Minister for Sustainability and the Environment. The FUTURE READY FOOD SAFETY HUB (FRESH), a tripartite initiative involving Singapore Food Agency (SFA), Agency for Science & Technology and Research (A*STAR) and NTU would also be launched by our Guest of Honour at the start of the conference.

Being the first in its series, FST Global conference would take place biennially. For FST Global 2021, delegates would have the opportunity to listen and interact with distinguished speakers from Singapore government agencies (SFA and A*STAR), local and international academia, and food industry both physically and virtually. Jointly organised by NTU Food Science & Technology (NTU FST) Office and NTU-Institute of Advanced Studies (NTU-IAS), FST Global 2021 will take place April 27 - 28, 2021 at NTU, Singapore
