Asia faces huge challenges due to its rapidly ageing population, but it also provides vast opportunities for food, beverage and nutrition firms to cater to this burgeoning demographic. We will drill down into the latest research, trends, products and insight spanning a whole host of conditions including…

  • Bone, joint and muscle health
  • Metabolic health conditions, including diabetes, obesity and heart health
  • Immune health and general wellness
  • Dysphagia and texture-related innovation
We’ll be coming from the perspective that healthy ageing is a life-long endeavour, so we’ll also be hearing how new product development, reformulation and fortification can help improve public health across all life states.

Incorporating Protein Vision Asia 2022
Digital version of the session will be broadcast on 20 October, 2022 for registered delegates
Interest in plant-based alternatives across Asia shows no signs of slowing, as evidenced by the growing number of major brands, suppliers and trend-setting foodservice outlets continuing to ramp-up investment. With Asia tipped to be the largest region for plant-based food consumption in the $21bn global finished product market by 2025, on the back of consumers’ ethical, health and environmental concerns, plus extensive product innovation, we’ll be looking at the very latest developments in this category. We’ll also be exploring the cultivated meat and dairy categories, as well as looking at how traditional protein outfits are responding to the new challenges and opportunities.

Key insights will include…

  • How to sustain the momentum behind Asia’s plant-based food and beverage revolution
  • The opportunities for hybrid products to bridge the divide and improve health
  • Why Asia is ripe for the arrival of cultured products, spanning meat, seafood and dairy
  • The role of the traditional protein sector in driving the sustainability agenda, as well as delivering vital nutritional benefits
  • The latest consumer and regulatory insights across the region’s major markets
