There is just one month to go until the second Healthy Ageing APAC Summit in Singapore, organised by FoodNavigator-Asia and NutraIngredients-Asia, featuring keynote presentations from Nestlé, PepsiCo, Kirin, BioCeuticals and FANCL.

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.

Editor-in-Chief of both titles, and Regional Head of APAC at publisher William Reed, Gary Scattergood said: “We are delighted to announce that the event will be attended by a raft of great speakers from so many leading brands, which really goes to show how important this issue is.

“Last year’s event was hugely successful in shining the spotlight on the efforts food and nutrition companies are making to promote healthy changes across all life stages, and this year’s summit is shaping up to even better.”

The 2018 summit was attended by over 170 delegates from across the globe, with 90% revealing in a feedback survey that it met or exceeded their expectations. 85% said it provided significant value to their business.
