Few industry topics in Asia-Pacific are as polarising as the infant formula debate.
On the one side, manufacturers are eager to tap into the region’s vast market to take safe, nutritious products to Asia; on the other, breastfeeding advocates have the ear of the regulators, effectively blocking the active promotion of formula in many countries.
So where is the middle ground for ethical industry players to compete on a level playing field—both against commercial rivals and their detractors?
What can Asia’s regulators learn from the experience of other countries? And is breast really best for all Asia’s populations?
On January 21 at 11am (China) FoodNavigator-Asia will invite a panel of experts that includes industry players, regulators and nutritionists to answer these questions and many others on this important subject.
