Singapore 30 by 30 Vision
The Covid Pandemic has exposed a food supply venerability in Singapore.
Singapore's reliance on imports for 90% of its food puts it at the mercy of external forces in exporting countries, the majority of which are beyond the Republic's control. Home-based producers now meet less than 10% of Singapore's nutritional needs.
According to Singapore Food Agency, Singapore imports food from some 170 countries. There has to be a change.
As a result, the SFA has set a goal for local produced food to meet 30% of Singapore's nutritional needs by 2030, reducing the country's reliance on imports and its vulnerability to supply interruptions.
3 Strategies that Government is embarking on are:
- Tapping on Technology, expanding agri-food production and automating systems via robotics and sensors
- Grooming Experts in the Field with Singaporean talent in urban food production processes and business models
- Encouraging Consumers in Choosing Homegrown Produce with initiatives with SG Framers' Markets and Supermarkets
Central Kitchen Singapore
Using Food Factory units as a Central Kitchen is one of the latest strategies that food manufacturer is embarking. Demand for them are increasing due to:
- Overall F%B labour crunch
- Tightly controlled food zones
- High rental at malls
- Economies of scale for small F&B establishments
- Sharp rise in new F&B business formations
- Government push for greater F&B productivity
Cloud Kitchen Singapore
When dining-in was restricted in April to June 2020, due to the Circuit Breaker, food business models emerged to offer direct delivery to clients' homes. Cloud Kitchens, which are centralised medium- to large-scale commercial kitchens made up of several small-scale identical modular kitchen units, grew as a result of this.
Each Cloud Kitchen is outfitted with the required processing equipment to support the production of ready-to-eat food products for direct delivery to consumers via online meal delivery platforms, with no direct retail or dine-in choices.
This trend will continue post-pandemic and food factory would serve to be a strong candidate to host cloud kitchens.
