DFSS Square Logo Green

What is DFSS?

Where disruptive plant-based, alternative protein and cellular agriculture innovations come together

The Disruption in Food and Sustainability Summit (DFSS)  was launched in 2018 with  H.E. Dr Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State for Health and Transport opening the Summit.  The second edition will be taking place on March 29th, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt, Singapore. The focus of the summit is on raising awareness and fostering the growth of sustainable plant-based/alternative protein/clean meat and non- food (packaging) across the value chain with innovation, partnerships and technology as enablers.  Our objective is to showcase what is happening in Singapore and the region and to provide a platform for organisations looking to form partnerships and launch or expand their businesses in the plant-based, clean meat and sustainable space.
