USCHPA Organizes Probiotic and Omega-3 Industry Summit in China

May 27, 2015

The conference will take place in Shanghai on June 23, one day before the beginning of Fi Asia-China.

In hopes of expanding the market for probiotic and omega-3 dietary supplements inside China’s strict regulatory environment, the U.S.-China Health Products Association (USCHPA; Lewes, DE) is organizing the China International Probiotic and Omega-3 Industry Summit to take place in Shanghai on June 23.

The goal of the event is “to promote and share valuable industry information as well as bring the industry together,” according to a release from USCHPA, a non-profit association dedicated to promoting commerce between the United States and China. The summit will take place the day before the beginning of the Fi Asia-China event that takes place on June 24-26, also in Shanghai.

According to USCHPA, probiotics and omega-3s are “two leading segments of the global dietary supplement industry,” but the ingredients have failed to reach their full potential in China due to the strict regulatory environment that has “curtailed investment in R&D and market entry endeavors.”

Topics to be covered at the event include:

·      Global market trends of probiotics and omega-3s
·      China registration and approval processes
·      Insights to China’s new food safety law and its impact on dietary supplements
·      Introduction to China’s growing cross border and B2C e-commerce platforms
·      Health benefits and current research of both probiotics and omega-3s

USCHPA will also be joined by several global industry partners in creating the event, including the China Clinical Nutritional Alliance, China Gate Consulting, Euromonitor International, the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s, and the International Probiotic Association.

The one-day event will take place at the Marriott Renaissance Yu Garden Hotel in Shanghai, followed by a two-hour cocktail networking party on the 21st floor of the hotel.
