Food waste is one of the largest waste streams in Singapore and it has grown by around 20% over the last decade, with 744 million kilograms of food waste generated in 2019 alone. While waste generation is part and parcel of human civilisation, modern-day technologies have allowed us to transform thrash to treasure. Functional food products and innovative packaging materials have been developed with enhanced processing methods that efficiently upcycle these side streams.
