H.E. Askar Kuttykadam the Ambassador of Kazakhstan visited the Singapore-based Oceanus Group to discuss potential food industry partnerships and the Government Technology Agency of Singapore about digital transformation partnerships in the public sector

OCEANUS Group is a leading food technology company with expertise in four key areas: food production, distribution, services, and innovation. The discussion with Oceanus CEO Peter Koh focused on how the company’s integrated strategy could support Kazakhstan’s efforts to streamline its food industry and diversify supply chains.

Because FoodTech is one of its exciting areas of expertise, Oceanus Group can likely be Kazakhstan’s go-to partner for developing new goods, technologies, and business models.

The visit revealed a significant opportunity to strengthen trade ties and ensure food security in the region.
