The forum is an annual event aimed at fostering dialogue between nutrition researchers and food manufacturers to exploit recent advances in nutritional science for the benefit of all stakeholders.
Governments and health professionals acknowledge that food and nutrition are core to the health issues facing an ageing population.
Our food choices are both the cause and the solution. Developing and maintaining optimal health throughout life calls for diet and lifestyle recommendations tailored to individual needs.
Nutrition research is providing the evidence to underpin recommendations and to stimulate food innovation. The forum provides a regular opportunity to discuss recent advances in nutrition knowledge and their potential application to our food supply and to establish directions and commitments for further value-adding nutrition research.
