About this event

This event is part of Made in Singapore 2021 is a two-week-long free virtual event series showcasing pioneers and dreamers reinventing the way we live, work, and play on our little red dot and beyond. Check out the rest of the series here.

Here in Singapore, we love our food and we cannot lie. With a plethora of dishes and flavors from all corners of the world, It’s no wonder eating is the (unofficial) Singapore's favorite pastime. The local appetite has also fed local food success stories, the likes of Ya Kun Kaya Toast and BreadTalk, and in recent years, these home-grown brands have also taken Singapore food overseas, with some rising up from humble beginnings to take the world by storm.

The past years have not been kind to most industries, but F&B arguably ranks among those that got the toughest blows. With many biting the dust, those remaining had little choice but to adapt in order to weather the storm and continue putting food on the table.

Take a bite of what our panelists behind beloved local brands shaping our food tapestry have to share! They’ll discuss the challenges of starting and scaling a local F&B brand, how they have to reinvent themselves to cope with the devastating effects of Covid-19, and what the local industry will look like in the post-Covid world.

Our Panelists:

  • Janice Wong | Chef/ Artist, Janice Wong Singapore
  • Dave Pynt | Chef & Owner, Burnt Ends Hospitality Group
  • Vicky Hwang | Founder, Atlas Bar
  • Andrei Soen | Creative Director, Park Bench Deli
  • [Moderator] Vivian Pei | Academy Chair, Asia for the World’s 50 Best Bars
