Description

Micronutrients are at the heart of the potential of food systems to deliver optimal health. Food systems are at the heart of determining what people eat. The Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference will cover the broad spectrum of micronutrients – research, efficacy and safety, implementation and the policy and enabling environment. In addition, the conference will take a deep dive into how micronutrients might be optimized and protected within food systems. The Micronutrient Forum is striving to ensure greater participation from the agriculture, manufacturing, processing and distribution, retail and culinary sectors, to widen the conversation and drive multi-sectoral innovation towards sustainable solutions.
