What are the pro’s and con’s of targeting “hardcore” athletes vs. weekend warriors? What about competitive athletes? Some ingredients popular in this segment may be legal for sale as dietary supplements but might be banned by certain athletic governing bodies, including professional leagues and Olympic and amateur competitions. Further, what might be acceptable in the bodybuilding and workout consumer segment might be shunned by competitive athletes or casual “fitness” consumers. What is the value of banned substance testing and certifications, and what is involved in undergoing these programs?

09:00: Special Food and Food for Special Medical Purposes (FSMP)

With the release of related regulations and laws, FSMP has a very promising future in China. However, given the high access barrier posed by strict formula registration and supervision measures and government management policies, this multi-billion markets is still in its infancy. While expecting much from the FSMP market, food enterprises are still doubtful: what types of FSMP are there? What are their differences to health food and medicine? How to develop FSMP for clinical purposes? The forum will invite related experts to give their answers.

13:00: The Latest Food Industry Laws and Regulations

To promote the development of market and economy, the Chinese government is taking stronger supervisional measures on functional foods, health supplements, nutrition foods and FSMPs. It has developed standards for their production and marketing, while at the same time speeded up the approval procedure of imported and domestic products. Applications for “blue caps” and “orange caps” are also accelerated and registration procedures simplified. As a result, the booming of the market for health foods, FSMPs and nutritional supplements can be easily expected.
