Justine's in Singapore!

Sep 1, 2017


So, Justine and the team are headed to Singapore to participate at the upcoming Vitafoods Asia.

Justine will be during the Keynote Panel Discussion on "The war on diabetes: Hunting for preventative solutions to Asia’s obesity crisis".

The panel is being chaired by Dr Jörg Hager, Head of Nutrition and Metabolic Health Unit - Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences SA Switzerland. Justine, along with Bruno Kistner, Policy Director, Food Industry Asia (FIA), Secretariat - Asia Roundtable on Food Innovation for Improved Nutrition (ARoFIIN) Singapore and Prof Rob M. van Dam, Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore, Co-Editorial Director - the Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative (ADPI) Singapore form a dream team to discuss the issues that are staring us in our face today.

With a global increase in the prevalence of obesity, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, nutrition continues to play a key role in its prevention; opening up a breadth of opportunities within the functional nutrition and nutraceutical market.  

With rising costs in healthcare worldwide, finding sustainable solutions for the prevention of non-communicable diseases is becoming a main priority for governments around the world, creating a unique opportunity for the functional nutrition industry to step in as global solution providers.  

This panel discussion will provide an understanding of the weight management supplement/product market in Asia as well as reviewing strong case studies of industry/government collaborations.

So, if you are in Singapore and want to get some free cookies, head over to our booth (b26) at Marina bay Sands between 5th and 6th September.
