The event will feature extensive expert insights from a raft of big-name brands, leading academics, market and trends specialists, policy experts, and the most innovative suppliers.

Building on our long-standing expertise in the microbiome space, we’ll be paying particular attention across all three days on the crucial role that probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics and postbiotics can play in meeting the region’s health needs and providing vast new product development opportunities, with the invaluable support of our partners at the International Probiotics Association .
