Highlights From Savour!’S Official Platform Launch Event
Thank you all for joining us for Savour!’s official platform launch event last Saturday morning, on 15 August 2020! We are thankful and appreciative that over 80 of you took the time out to attend and celebrate a momentous milestone with the Savour! team.
Zatalyn Ho, the emcee for the event, started off the launch by giving an introduction to Savour! followed by an opening address by Katrina, the CEO of Savour!, who is behind securing many of the merchants, B2B customers and strategic partners, share with us her purpose and journey of starting Savour! as well as express her gratitude towards the team, mentors, investors, merchant partners, B2B customers, and everyone who supported her during her startup journey.
Our two guests of honors, Mr Eric Chua, the parliamentary secretary for the Ministry of Social and Family Development & Ministry of Culture, community, and youth as well as Mr Mr David Chua, the CEO of National Youth Council were there to grace our event to deliver their opening remarks. Thank you to both guests of honors for their wise words and encouraging thoughts.
Indeed, as quoted from Mr Eric Chua ‘While the outlook for the immediate future for us may not be as rosy. We here in Singapore have one another to support one another and work towards building a greater future together, whether we are in a team or collectively as separate organizations.’
In Mr David Chua words, ‘Follow through on your conviction and passion. Believe in something and do something about it.’ This is what team at Savour! believe in which motivates us to always go back to our purpose of starting Savour! and working towards our goals.
Leading up to the launch, the team at Savour! has been working tirelessly with our shared passion about environmental sustainability and helping those in need to strive to achieve our common goal of making a larger environmental and social impact in the world, with one less food wasted and one more organization empowered at a time.
Thereafter, we have Mike, the CTO of Savour! who is behind developing Savour!’s amazing web and app platform, where he unveiled the platform and demonstrated the process of how to use Savour! for our B2B customers to start placing orders and applying for sponsorships.
We then conducted a mini-game segment on Kahoot consisting of 6 questions relating to food wastage and food insecurity in Singapore and internationally. I am excited to announce the top 3 winners ‘ KE7, Elijah & huiqi’ who will be walking away with a $10 Savour! e-voucher each to use on our platform.
Moving on to the most exciting segment of the event, Jessie, our emcee for the 2nd half of the event, and Katrina shared about Savour!’s upcoming fundraising initiative, launch video, special launch promotional campaign, and social media contest!

The 2nd half of the event focused mainly on sharing with our audience ways to reduce food waste, where we had two live virtual zero food waste workshops.
