The indomitable and irrepressible Travelling Gourmet TM finds…

MARVELLOUS and exotic foods and beverages at Speciality and Fine Food Asia 2022. SFFA 2022 is back in Singapore after a 2 year hiatus due to the vile china virus wilfully spread by china worldwide. I found many unique products from Myanmar, Uzbekistan, South Africa, Rwanda, Australia, Indonesia and more!

Speciality & Fine Food Asia unveils 5-in-1 trade show for the F&B industry this June 22 to June 24, 2022.

With the addition of Speciality Coffee & Tea Asia, Meat & Poultry Asia and Food2Go alongside Restaurant, Pub & Bar Asia, this year’s edition of SFFA is set to be a mega show of new products for the F&B sector.

The fourth edition will also house co-located trade show Restaurant, Pub & Bar (RPB) Asia, and see the launch of three new co-located shows – Speciality Coffee & Tea Asia (SCTA)Meat & Poultry Asia (MPA) and Food2Go.

Many Australian products like Wines and more were on display at the Australian Pavilion. There was Karibee Honey from Western Australia, Taka Gin infused with First Nations (aboriginal) native botanicals like eucalyptus gum leaf plus Jasper and Myrtle Chocolate with Cacao from Papua New Guinea. An unusual product was Circle Harvest Edible Insects Superfood which comprise crickets fed with fruit and vegetables. I have eaten Deep Fried Grasshoppers before in a Mexican Burrito. They are very crunchy! Trade Commissioner Amelia Walsh said: “AUSTRADE Singapore are excited to be back in person promoting some of Australia’s finest agri-products at SFFA in Singapore..

I also tried Coffee from Rwanda by Kawah for the first time and I liked the effervescent citrus profile wit the acidity of Kenyan coffee. The strong coffee is very smooth wth no bitter aftertaste. Made from Arabica Bourbon beans for more than 10 years, women account for 90% of the process of making this organic coffee from farm to cup. This coffee won ‘Best of the Best’ and ‘Coffee Lover’s Choice’ at the 2021 Great Taste World Competition. The producer assured me, “Rwanda is very peaceful now. Come and visit us.”
