Insect proteins and technologies as solutions to solve deep issues in ASEAN


 As insect based protein alternatives gain a foothold worldwide, startups in the ASEAN region do not remain far behind. A new breed of entrepreneurs in the region are striving to make the industry more accessible and bring it into the mainstream by growing insects more efficiently and developing improved methods for breeding, processing technologies and scale up sustainably. Join us on an online session (zoom) to learn more from a group of ASEAN based Insect technology startups on Saturday, 31st 13:00-15:00 hrs SGT (+1 JPT).
