Food Innovation Product Award 2019

Food Innovation Product Award (FIPA) aims to bring together food manufacturers and tertiary students from ITE, Polytechnics and Universities to collaborate and co-create new and innovative food products.

SFMA has organised two editions of the Food Innovation Product Award (FIPA) in 2016 and 2018, and brought together 48 food manufacturers and tertiary students to collaborate and co-create new and innovative food products through an innovation process to gain consumer and market insights, and facilitate the commercialisation of novel food ingredients, processing methods and products.

In the previous edition of the FIPA in 2018, 23 food manufacturers and student teams underwent a structured 9-month innovation process to develop new product prototypes. Home-grown firms Mr Popiah, Life3 Biotech, Jumain Sataysfaction, Tai Hua and Tan Seng Kee clinched the category awards at the inaugural FIPA Ceremony on 19 April 2018 where the teams were assessed on the innovativeness of product concepts and feasibility of commercialisation.

The third edition of the FIPA in 2019 took place from March 2019 to November 2019 as it continues to focus on innovation and product commercialisation through an enhanced 9-month innovation process to help food manufacturers develop business capabilities through design thinking, market and consumer insights, conceptualisation, prototyping, packaging, marketing and pitching. A total of 21 teams has been formed with institutes of higher learning from Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Institute of Technology an and Singapore University of Technology and Design.
