Senior leaders from the likes of Nestle, Danone, H&H and Haleon are preparing to take the stage in Singapore for our Growth Asia Summit 2023, where they will be sharing exclusive insights on day one on Infant and Childhood Nutrition, Maternal and Women’s Health.

Under the theme of Trends and Innovation Opportunities Across the Life Stages, ​the summit will ​explore the very latest market opportunities across the region that is driving the growth of the global food, beverage and nutrition industries – Asia!

The summit will once again take place again in Singapore, at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel and conference centre, from 26-28 September 2023.​ 

On day one, we’ll be exploring the latest research, product development and consumer trends spanning the needs of mums-to-be and infants, from nutrition during pregnancy through to the all-important first 1000 days of life, in a region where we know parents are more than willing to pay a premium for scientifically-validated products.

Furthermore, in a region that is experiencing a surge in childhood obesity and diabetes, we’ll explore how the food and nutrition industry can deliver affordable, nutritious and natural products that kids want to eat, and parents can feel good about buying.

Finally, we will also assess how there has been a notable uptick in innovation and product launches beyond maternal health for women in recent years, including those targeted at the menopause, sexual health and reproductive health, alongside the thriving beauty-from-within category.

On day two, we will turn our attention to Active Lifestyle Nutrition, Protein Innovation and Men’s Health.

And on day three, will be focusing on Healthy Ageing​, as well as looking to future life stage innovation opportunities through the prism of Personalised Nutrition and Future Food Innovation.

Throughout the three-day summit, FoodNavigator-Asia.com​ and NutraIngredients-Asia.com​ will help you understand how the industry can best navigate the region’s highly diverse consumer, regulatory, cultural and economic landscape in order to reap the substantial food, beverage and nutrition rewards on offer across all life stages.
