The leading voice of the food industry in Asia

As a non-profit society based in Singapore, FIA represents and promotes the views of the food and drink industry throughout the region, using science-based advocacy to help shape public policy.

With both eyes on the future, we aim to be the primary think tank for the food industry in Asia, a valuable partner in regional development and a leading resource for those wishing to future-proof their businesses.


FIA was formed to enable major food manufacturers to speak with one voice in Asia, principally in response to the region's rapid economic growth and complex challenges in areas such as regulatory standards, food safety, and effective public health approaches.

Our members share common values on issues relating to food safety, regional development, and the responsible promotion of balanced diets and lifestyles. Through our high level forums, FIA aims to promote a coordinated approach on these issues.
