AgriProtein opens new R&D centre and global project management office in Singapore

Singapore, 18 December 2019

AgriProtein, part of the Insect Technology Group, the global pioneer in waste-to-nutrient upcycling, proudly announces the opening of their Global Hub in Singapore.

We are proud to open our state of the art R&D centre and global project management office (PMO) in Singapore. With the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board, the company will continue to invest in its research and process development. With over 18 colleagues already in Singapore this new hub underlines our commitment to R&D and the Asia Pacific region.

Our Singapore research facility will lead our global research into Anti-Microbial Peptides, Chitin and Chitin derived products in addition to serving as our global analytical chemistry reference lab. The Singapore team will also conduct larvae feed trials using local organic waste streams available in the Asia region.

The Singapore office also includes our global project management office, operating team and regional business development hub to tap into the strategic opportunities Singapore has to offer and will create further exciting job opportunities in a natural and sustainable nutrient recycling industry.

’We are very excited about the opportunities for our business in Asia and creating a global hub in Singapore will help us drive further expansion in the region as well as support our business globally’ says Jason Drew, CEO.

The global hub is led by John Diener, COO of AgriProtein, who commented: ‘Singapore offers an excellent combination of deep talent pools in the domains we needed, so it was an easy choice to establish our global hub here. We appreciate the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board in assisting us with opening our site in Science Park II’.
