Thailand has an established domestic Agri-Food industry, bearing abundant natural resources, a large workforce and breakthroughs in R&D. Additionally, the country is a leading exporter of the world’s food. Supporting the development of Agri-Food Tech will be essential to develop Thailand as a global innovation hub industry in line with Thailand 4.0.

The very first Agri-Food Tech Expo Asia (AFTEA) roadshow targeting the Thai economy aims to explore the capabilities of Agri-Food Tech in the country, as well as to generate ideas through the convergence of thought-leaders and industry professionals in the Thai Agri-Food scene. Key takeaways include:

  1. Highlighting initiatives to integrate Agri-Food Tech in the sector
  2. Raising awareness about Agri-Food technologies targeting critical issues in Thailand

Time Agenda
14.00-14.10 Opening Remarks
14:10-14:25 Keynote Address: Enabling Agri-Food Tech adoption in Thailand 4.0 to ensure food security
Thailand has been a leader in food production and manufacturing for decades, with the food industry contributing roughly 23% of the country’s GDP. In recent years, Thailand has created an environment to encourage widespread adoption of food innovation. As the pandemic urges the world towards establishing food security, Agri-Food Tech will be an essential pillar in moving Thailand away from food supply issues, and toward producing diverse and nutritious foods to promote healthy diets.

This session will discuss:
  1. Opportunities and initiatives in digitalising the food supply chain
  2. Connecting systems to promote Food Safety, Security and Sustainability
  3. Supporting the nationwide adoption of Agri-Food Tech
14:25-14.40 An ecosystem for startups in Agri-Food Tech to thrive
The implementation of local Agri-Food Tech in Thailand is in its early stages with heavy reliance on high cost, imported technologies. This creates an opportunity for innovators to create innovative, affordable and accessible technology to serve the industry. However, a startup ecosystem can only thrive with support of a strong ecosystem.

Hence, this session aims to discuss:
  1. Identifying trends in the local Agri-Food startup tech scene
  2. Bridging the gap between entrepreneurs and initiatives, programs, funding to accelerate growth for startups
  3. How investor-entrepreneur partnerships address common challenges faced by Agri-Food Tech startups
14:40-15.20 Panel Discussion: Towards the Future of Food: Balancing taste, nutrition and sustainability with Agri-Food Tech
As a vibrant hub for food innovation, Thailand has successfully established itself as one of the world’s leaders in the Future of Food. Endless opportunities for agri-food innovation have contributed to the rise of value-added, green label, and sustainable foods. However, a saturated, competitive market can make it harder to stand out. What are the latest market trends and how can Thailand stay ahead in the Future of Food?

In this session, we discuss:
  1. Solutioning with Agri-Food Tech for a sustainable post-pandemic food system
  2. The role of alternative proteins in the Future of Food
  3. Food Innovation: Understanding Thailand’s consumer choices and barriers to commercialisation
15:20-15:30 Closing Remarks
15:30 onwards Networking Session
