Furthermore, KraftHeinz, Brands Suntory, Kellogg, Fonterra, GSK, F&N, Usana Health Sciences, NTUC Fairprice, Danone, Nature's Way, Redmart, Ocean Health and Proctor & Gamble with have senior representation at the the summit.
With the number of over-60s in Asia set to double to 1.3 billion by 2050, the event will look at how the nutrition and food industry can meet the needs of the rapidly ageing populations of today, and more crucially, tomorrow.
This means we'll be shining the spotlight on the latest product innovations, ingredient discoveries, and research targeted at older consumers, while also assessing what industry is doing to improve the health of younger consumers, so they can ultimately lead a more active and healthy life, and enjoy their golden years for longer in the future.
