From June 29 until July 15, the Growth Asia interactive broadcast series will host a panel of expert insights from big food brands, leading academics, and the most innovative suppliers. More than 3,200 industry delegates will be joining these virtual sessions, which covers an array of trending topics such as healthy aging, snacking, to plant-based innovation.
Interest in plant-based alternatives across Asia shows no signs of slowing, as evidenced by the growing number of major brands, suppliers and trend-setting foodservice outlets continuing to ramp-up investment. Asia is tipped to be the largest region for plant-based food consumption in the $21bn global finished product market by 2025.
Across the region, the future growth potential is huge, as the middle-income group grows, urbanization gathers pace, life expectancy increases and consumer demands rapidly evolve, not least due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Asia is primed to be the global driving force for growth across not only mainstream food and beverage products, but also functional foods and supplements.
In the upcoming Growth Asia summit organized by FoodNavigator, we are shining the spotlight on how the industry can best navigate the region’s highly diverse consumer, regulatory, cultural and economic landscape in order to reap these substantial rewards.
Roquette is proud to be part of the virtual Growth Asia Interactive Broadcast series and sponsor of the Plant-based Innovation session taking place on July 6, 3PM SGT.
