The Lost Ingredients Lab is the inaugural project of Genesis. It began as a pilot to address the gaps and challenges in the food and agri sector for local regenerative agricultural ingredients, underutilized but possessing high nutrient value to reach in the international market. Following a market feasibility study 4 ingredients, young jackfruit, gotukola, seaweed and mushroom were chosen.

The companies accepted into the Garage programme where 3 SMEs would be groomed to enter the international market were based on these ingredients. An accelerator programme was also run parallel, where 3 tech companies would be empowered to reinvent the local agri and food sector through technologies such as block chain, traceability, and dehydration services.

Plant Based manufactures a vegan burger patty product using organic young jackfruit. Their vision is for clean and healthy plant-based foods. They also have a range of other plants-based products that they are constantly innovating and improving.

Lak Nature International manufactures dehydrated fruit, vegetables, pot-herbs, pharmaceutical herbs and spices. They launched in 2019 with a range of dehydrated products, in-brine products and FMCG products.
