In light of the evolving situation of the COVID-19; as well as heightened precautionary measures imposed by our University and Singapore’s Ministry of Heath, it is with regrets to inform that FSTG 2020 will be postponed till further notice.

We hope to update you on the new conference dates as soon as the situation is under control and look forward to your continuous participation later on.


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 2020 (FST Global 2020) 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, Mr. Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry & Ministry of Education. A new national food 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 2020, delegates would have the opportunity to listen and interact with distinguished speakers from Singapore government agencies (SFA and ASTAR), local and international academia, and food industry. Jointly organised by NTU Food Science & Technology (NTU FST) Office and NTU-Institute of Advanced Studies (NTU-IAS), FST Global 2020 will take place March 4 - 6, 2020 at NTU, Singapore
