The Asia Food Challenge Report

A joint report co-authored by PwC, Rabobank and Temasek was exclusively launched at the summit.

“The Asia Food Challenge” report highlights an $800 billion investment opportunity in Asia’s agri-food sector over the next decade.

The report estimates the market to grow by 7% per year, with Asia to double its spending on food to over US$8 trillion by 2030, powered by population growth of an additional 250 million, the equivalent of adding another Indonesia to the region.
