Course Introduction

The number of Singaporeans aged 65 and above is projected to double to 900,000 by 2030. That means 1 in 4 Singaporeans will be in that age group, up from 1 in 8 today. With the rapid increase of people aged 65 and above in Singapore, there are significant opportunities for the food industry to look into the older demographic population for product insights and to develop products to meet their nutritional needs. An adequate dietary intake is one of the key factors in maintaining good health and quality of life for the silver age group.

Subject matter experts from FIRC, BASF, Mintel and Tetra Pak will share the latest trends, technical application know-how in overcoming formulation challenges. Science-based health solutions will also be presented as a springboard for strategic innovation discussions and partnerships.
