Summit to Showcase Flourishing Functional Food Industry in Asia
Higher life expectancy across the globe, and growing health consciousness among consumers, has provided a bright outlook for the functional food and nutraceutical market. The value of the global nutraceutical industry is expected to reach nearly US$280 billion by 2021, and the Asia Pacific region is expected to contribute substantially towards this growth, as consumers in emerging markets in China and across Southeast Asia are becoming increasingly health conscious and wealthy.
Motivated by these positive indicators and the success of previous events, Duxes will host the 4rd Nutraceutical and Functional Food Asia Pacific Summit 2019 in Singapore, on June 25-26. The summit will gather delegates from across the functional food and nutraceuticals industry, including government officials, researchers, analysts, and representatives from leading companies and industry associations, to discuss trends and developments in the booming Asian market.
During the two-day event, speakers representing regulatory agencies and prominent NGOs will detail the regulatory framework for functional foods in prominent jurisdictions, including the United States, Indonesia, ASEAN, and China. Further testimony from industry leaders and researchers will provide firsthand knowledge on crucial product innovation to probiotics and plant-based products, the ascendant sports nutrition sector, as well as market trends toward healthy aging and personalized nutrition.
The 4rd Nutraceutical and Functional Food Asia Pacific Summit 2019 will provide a platform for high-level exchange and collaboration within the functional food industry, continuing Duxes'support for the industry's growth in emerging markets. Professionals, whose work relates to functional foods, health foods, food packaging, dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals, are invited to attend.
