Infant nutrition - ‘Growth with confidence’

Infant formula was the fastest growing functional food of 2013. This one day conference will bring together producers, suppliers, health experts and advisers to look at current trends and market opportunities in the field of infant nutrition.

The day will be divided into four parts:

Market opportunities
Health, well-being and society
Breaking new ground
Next steps

Topics addressed by these sessions will include:

Sector growth, opportunities and emerging markets
Consumer trends
Industry best practice
Society and education
Technology and innovation
New research
Ingredients and organic products

Zenith International Chairman, Richard Hall, has this to say about the event: ‘Infant nutrition is generally in the news for the wrong reasons. It is a hugely important market with great growth potential. The question is how to provide affordable high quality nutrition at the same time as satisfying the best practice requirements of society – hence the conference theme ‘Growth with confidence’’.

There has been a great deal of interest in this event already and delegate places can now be secured via the ‘Book Now’ link at the top of the page.
