Senior leaders from the likes of H&H, Haleon, Mondelez and Melrose Health are preparing to take the stage in Singapore for our Growth Asia Summit 2023, where they will be sharing exclusive insights on day two on active nutrition, protein innovation and men’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 two we will be debating how COVID-19 pandemic placed health, wellness and good nutrition very much top of mind for consumers, and this shows no sign of abating.

This is creating huge opportunities for firms that can reformulate, fortify and innovate across all product formats, from snacks to supplements, to enable consumers stay active and healthy.

In addition to showcasing the latest trends, research and product development across the broad Active Lifestyle Nutrition space and more specific sports nutrition category, we’ll be honing in on how innovators in the protein sector are also riding the health and wellness wave as the popularity of plant-based products and flexitarian lifestyles continues to gather pace.

In the men’s health space, specific products targeting testosterone levels, prostate problems, liver health and hair loss continue to gain traction. We’ll be assessing the latest and exploring the white spaces for further innovation as consumers increasingly look for more than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ multivitamin.

On day one, we will be assessing Infant and Maternal Nutrition, and Women’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.
