Focusing on Food Export Sectors from Pakistan to Singapore

September 14, 2022 • 2:00 pm • Zoom Webinar

Recent data from the World Bank indicates that today’s global food system is highly complex and interconnected, with over 90% of food products exported from the points of origin. More than half of the world’s population is expected to rely in food sourced from other countries by the year 2050. ​

​In Singapore, the Singapore Food Agency (“SFA”) said that 90% of the food consumed is imported, in 2021, with a good majority from 8 countries. Any shifts in global food supply will affect Singapore’s food supply, diversified food sources can therefore add to the resilience of Singapore’s food supply, and Pakistan can be potentially accretive to this diversification strategy. ​​

In 2021, Pakistan exported USD35 billion worth of products worldwide and 17.4% was food products, including Singapore. What are on our plates today, and what else can Singapore food merchants' source from Pakistan? On the other hand, what are Pakistani palates like, and what can Singapore food merchants' interest Pakistani consumers with? What are the regulatory frameworks that Singapore and Pakistan companies need to contend with? ​

​ ​Join us at this 5th episode of FYIstival 2022: The South Asia Edition, and get some answers, prep for action, and add to the diversity of consumer choices for Singapore and Pakistan.
