TRIA has made the news! 📰

During the Singapore Budget 2019 on 18 February, finance minister Heng Swee Keat placed emphasis on zero waste and used TRIA and UglyGood as examples of start-ups using innovation to tackle environmental issues.

“Just as we closed the water loop, we can now turn our attention to closing the waste loop. There are already start-ups tackling this challenge. Two companies, UglyGood and TRIA, have been working on innovative ways to convert food-related waste into useful products. These are good examples of opportunities in our zero waste movement. So I hope to see more of such initiatives in the coming years.”

We’re also excited to mention that TRIA’s co-founder and CEO, Ng Pei Kang, had a special feature in the Lianhe Zaobao on 19 February. The office was abuzz with excitement when we were paid a visit by the photographer.

The Singapore government is launching a Zero-Waste Masterplan in the second half of 2019 to better manage of food waste, packaging waste and plastics. We are happy to be part of the journey to solve waste issues!
