Asia-Pacific’s population is ageing at a rapid rate, opening up huge new opportunities for food, beverage and nutrition companies.
The number of older persons in the region is expected to more than double from 600 million in 2018 to nearly 1.3 billion by 2050.
The event brings together brands, suppliers, regulators and market experts to assess how the industry can meet the food and nutrition needs of older consumers of today and tomorrow.
Crucially, it also comes from the perspective that healthy ageing begins from conception, and therefore assesses healthy food and nutrition solutions across all age spans, which help ensure people will ultimately enjoy a healthy older age.
