Vitafoods Live! debates to take aim at key industry issues

From infant formula, to additives, protein, medical foods and omega-3 issues, our team of expert journalists will be taking aim at the most important and topical issues for the global food and nutrition industry at the Vitafoods Live! debate theatre next week.

Vitafoods Live! is a brand new debating theatre on the show floor of the Vitafoods conference and expo. Led by our team of expert editors and journalists, six dynamic debates that are central to some of the biggest industry issues and trends will be taking place over three days in Geneva.

The debates will cover topics including omega-3, cocoa flavanols, protein, infant formula, natural and healthy bakery, and medical foods, and will be broadcast over the show floor, the Vitafoods website and later on William Reed Business Media outlets.
