The Asia-Pacific region is currently home to about 60 per cent of the world’s population of older people, defined as those aged 60 years or older. The number of older persons in the region is expected to more than double from 600 million in 2018 to nearly 1.3 billion by 2050.
This means the demand for nutrition and food products suitable for the elderly population will soar, while younger people are increasingly aware that the nutrition and health choices they make today will affect their quality of life in older age. This event will look at how the nutrition and food industry can meet the needs of the rapidly ageing populations of today, and more crucially, tomorrow.
After a hugely successful inaugural event in 2018, the Healthy Ageing APAC Summit will return to Singapore for a second year – organised by the publishers of FoodNavigator-Asia.com and NutraIngredients-Asia.com.
