Social Entrepreneurship and Eco-park Development (SEED) seeks to be the first integrated social playground for the exchange, prototyping and showcasing of innovative and inclusive solutions to social challenges. SEED is a social enterprise and a social innovator hub for Asia and beyond, leveraging on SIP’s global network to build a robust and dynamic social innovator community.
The inclusion of 7 container restaurants in SEED was more than just to provide an F&B element in the park. It is in itself a prototype and showcase of a sustainability solution and a social business model. Being the first container restaurant enclave in Singapore, it shows how out-of-use shipping containers can find place in the daily lives of people through their culinary pleasures.
It is also the first time that entrepreneurs are given the platform to both embrace their passion for F&B as well as make their business model inclusive and impactful. Whether it is through offering jobs to the marginalized, raising awareness for sustainability or encouraging mindfulness, each container restaurant carries its own social mission, emblazoned on its unique design. They also offer sale of suspended coffees/tea and or meals to inspire kindness in everyday life through the simple concept of paying it forward.
