The third edition of the Food and Beverage Entrepreneurship competition, organised by Republic Polytechnic's (RP) School of Hospitality Diploma in Restaurant and Culinary Operations, will be launched during the RP Open House on 6th Jan 2022, with the theme – “Sustainable and Healthier Desserts”.
Background – Plant-based ingredients and mindful healthy eating have been trending recently and is likely to continue to gain more interest in our younger population. Furthermore, due to Singapore’s aging population, there is a growing demand for healthier desserts using environmentally sustainable plant-based ingredients with sustainable menu options.
Requirements –You and your partner have just started a home-based baking business with a focus on healthy desserts using fully plant-based ingredients. To expand your business, you are planning to partner with a trendy vegan café for them to sell your unique no-bake dessert on your behalf. Prepare a sales pitch presentation highlighting the dessert’s appeal to convince the café owners to partner with you.
The competition will give participants who have an interest in Food and Beverage the opportunity to demonstrate their innovative, problem-solving, creative and presentation skills in front of a panel of hospitality industry leaders.
Participants will gain an appreciation of a wide range of healthy vegan dessert options as well as types of innovation taking place within the food and beverage industry. In addition, participants will also be exposed to the latest food trends such as, sustainability and alternative ingredients adopted in the industry.
The top 10 teams may also be required to prepare two portions of their non-baked plant-based dessert for the judges during the finals subject to prevailing SMM conditions.
