Feed 9 Billion announce the introduction of the Feed9B

Singapore Restaurant Week – The Future of Food at the Singapore Food Festival (SFF) 2022 (24 August to 11 September 2022). The sustainable foods section is a welcome one to the longest running, nationwide, annual food festival, in light of global food supply concerns brought on by the pandemic. Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week is held as part of SFF 2022, and supported by STB.

Feed 9 Billion has gathered 14 local food brands in food innovation and sustainability and 11 restaurants and chains to collaborate and create unique menus that will showcase new food forms to consumers for the first time in Singapore’s history. With menus featuring plant-based beef and chicken from local food technology companies and the world-first soy alcoholic beverage, Feed 9 Billion hopes to attract diners to sample and give feedback on their impressions of the food. This feedback will help local manufacturers to further improve on their products, as well as pave the way for more dining establishments to embark on serving sustainable foods in the near future. Consumers will be able to sample these introductory dishes at 16 outlets islandwide from specially-curated food innovation menus created by these pioneering restaurants. These dishes include 1826’s Truffle Beef Mushroom Tart using Thoughtful Foods plant-based meats, Love Handle’s Yaki Udon using Kosmode Health’s W0W® Noodle and their in-house plant-based minced meat, Yum Cha’s Chicken Dumplings in Chilli Oil using Shandi Global’s plant-based chicken, and many more restaurants and dishes.

Ms Guo Teyi, Director, Retail and Dining, Singapore Tourism Board, says, “Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week adds to the diversity of experiences at this year’s Singapore Food Festival. We hope it will appeal to consumers who are mindful of the impact their food choices have on the environment. We are also pleased that it provides a platform for local culinary talents to showcase how they have combined food innovation with emerging trends.”

The Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week runs island-wide at participating restaurants from 5 to 11 September 2022. For details, refer to www.feed9b.com.

Alchemy Foodtech

Alchemy Foodtech was born out of Alan’s desire to protect his family’s health from a history of diabetes. Having lost his grandparents to the disease and witnessing many relatives struggle with diabetic dietary restrictions, he and co-founder Verleen recognised the important role food plays in diabetes prevention. Verleen, a food scientist by training, began with research into how food consumption relates to the disease. A key finding which became the foundation stone of Alchemy Foodtech was how refined carbohydrates (i.e., white bread and white rice) are one of the key causes of high blood sugar levels in our bodies. Common food items which feature heavily in our meals every day, they knew it would be an uphill battle to attempt to change people’s eating preferences and behaviours. Yet, time was of the essence in the fight against diabetes. Alan and Verleen decided to create specific food ingredients that would lower glucose release while maintaining the original taste of food. Alchemy Fibre™ became the breakthrough ingredient which is now patented.

RÓA

RÓA™ (pronounced as “row-uh”) is Icelandic and it means Calm. We have always been drawn to the idea of creating something that can bring a moment of calmness and pleasure to someone. It’s the same feeling when you are winding down at the end of the day, enjoying the stillness of the evening/night relaxing with a good book or drink. When the Midnight™ Cake was created, it was a pure passion project by our Chief Artisan Jane Tan. She wanted to create a beautiful and delicious cake that her god-daughter, Emma could enjoy. Being allergic to eggs, dairy and also intolerant to gluten from a very young age, it was tough to find a delicious cake every year for her birthday. A foodie trip to New York and Dallas brought a lot of awareness to Jane in terms of quality organic and vegan ingredients. She was convinced that using vegan friendly ingredients was the way to go for better health and the environment. After 9 months of R&D, the Midnight™ Cake was finally born. The joy to hear and see young children and people like Emma able to indulge in dessert was simply amazing.

REFERENCE QUOTATIONS FROM PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS

Kevin Yap, 3rd Generation owner of Straits Chinese Nonya Restaurant

My family has been serving Authentic Nonya Cuisines over three generations since 1953 and we pride ourselves in this tradition and heritage. However, despite being a traditional restaurant, we evolve to meet the constantly changing demands of customers. Now, it’s not only about whether the food tastes good, but is it sustainable? Plant-based foods requires less water to produce and emits less carbon dioxide. Thus, we hope that by participating in Feed9B Singapore Restaurant Week, we can be a part of this change to be more conscious of what we eat and think about the world we want our future generations to live in.

Lee Kian Chong, CEO of Canopy Restaurants

Canopy has always placed nature at the core of our identity. As we continue to grow, we strive towards a sustainable supply of food resources and to be a partner in the sustainable food journey of our community. Together with Singapore’s 30 by 30 Initiative and focus on food resilience, we hope to contribute by continuing to make delectable food sustainably for our future generations.

Felix Chong, Group Executive Sous Chef of Monti

We are starting to see a shift towards plant-based ingredients and diets. Working with plantbased ingredients is more interesting than mere vegetable. Clients are looking for more innovation and interaction, and we have to grow with their wants. Inspiring more plant-based eating in everyone is really important in our planet. It’s interesting to see the thoughtful fun and non-preachy approach the several plant-based startups in Singapore takes. It’s not just about vegan foods for vegans but delicious food for all for the good of our planet. We are asking the questions about the ingredients we are using and inspiring others to bring biodiversity to the plate, which is important for the future of the food industry.
