The big stories
The rising prevalence of dietary-related disease (such as obesity) is driving health departments across the globe to pressure the food industry to take a more proactive role in supporting the health of their consumers. Regulatory bodies are putting measures in place to help protect consumers from food and drink that may negatively impact health.
In the next two years
Regulatory bodies are striving to protect vulnerable people such as the elderly through tighter control of the manufacture and marketing of products targeting people. Planetary health is set to become as important as human health, and in regions like APAC, regulators are starting to crack down on misleading claims on food and drink.
In five years and beyond
Online platforms such as blockchain or mobile device apps are set to become increasingly important channels for communicating information about food and drink to consumers. Expect greater attention to the role processed foods play in health, as regulatory bodies consider even stricter regulations for food and drink additives.
