Future of Food in ASEAN Forum


GlobalSF, a non-profit driving international economic development for San Francisco, has partnered with LEVEL3 to present an exciting and interactive evening of panel discussions. These discussions will bring together food companies and investors from across the region to:

  • explore the latest food innovation trends,

  • build partnerships for sustainable food systems across ASEAN,

  • discover alternate food ingredients that can feed 10 billion people without harming the planet, and

  • share what is happening across the pond in the San Francisco Bay Area! 

Panel 1: Building Sustainable Food System in ASEAN

How can an already-stressed food system feed 10 billion people sustainably? How can we address the key challenge of producing more with less, while ensuring the highest safety standards in Asia? 

Our panel experts will discuss how innovation and technology can radically transform and strengthen the food systems in Asia. They will also share what their organisations are doing to ensure that technology is being deployed and adapted to make the supply chain more productive, efficient and resilient.

Panel 2: Opportunities between the SF Bay Area & Southeast Asia

Join GlobalSF Executive Director, Darlene Chiu Bryant along with Senior Executive from Zume, Head of Global RIFF Fund, and Tanya Holland to find out more about growing opportunities between San Francisco Bay Area and ASEAN.
