The challenges in the battle to provide adequate infant nutrition across APAC are as diverse as the region itself, with severe micronutrient deficiencies, stunting and, on the other hand, soaring obesity levels being witnessed.

That’s why in the second of our Nutrition Asia​ video series, we focus on the sector that has so much importance on the overall health and nutrition of the region, with the first 1000 days of life being pivotal to long-term wellness.

With the help of Danone’s Asia R&D director of infant nutrition Dr Jacques Bindels and Mintel’s food and nutrition analyst Michelle Teodoro, we assess the state of infant nutrition in Asia Pacific today, the challenges it is facing and the opportunities for future growth.

Watch the video to see Dr Bindels discuss how he gauges infant health across the region, his main R&D objectives and the latest nutritional developments.

Meanwhile Teodoro looks at the latest health claims and hot ingredients that are driving product innovation.

We then look at the latest research around infant nutrition fortification and analyse the implications it has for APAC, before shining the spotlight on the new categories emerging in the sector providing additional revenue opportunities for suppliers and manufacturers.
