Roquette Unveils Food Innovation Centre in Singapore

Roquette, a leader in plant-based ingredients, has opened a new customer experience centre in Singapore. This new facility aims at further advancing Roquette’s leadership as a strategic partner to its customers for food innovations that suit the Asian palate.

According to a 2021 study of PwC, Rabobank, and Temasek, Asia is now the largest food consumer market, with an additional US$4.4 trillion in spending expected by 2030 – considering that 55% of this increase will be directly driven by consumer choices. Furthermore, the pandemic has changed consumers’ habits, especially in what and where they eat.

Since then, eating healthier and using sustainable ingredients have become more prominent in Asia. The new Roquette facility will have a pivotal role in building a stronger Asian food story in the development of innovative and sustainable food experiences.

“Asia’s diverse countries and culture, cuisine choices, dietary preferences, and varying maturity of food production systems has made Singapore, the location of Roquette’s regional headquarters, ideal as a regional food innovation hub where like-minded companies develop future-ready and sustainable food solutions beyond its shores,” said Rohit Markan, CEO of Roquette Asia Pacific.

With 90 years of plant-based innovation under its belt, Roquette says it has the expertise to reimagine food concepts that meet the unique and essential needs of various consumer lifestyles.

“The expertise we have accumulated gives us considerable advantages in the food and nutrition sectors. Singapore offers a vibrant ecosystem for food innovation to flourish and to develop new solutions for a more sustainable food system in the region” Markan said.
