Health and Nutrition

FIA advocates a multi-stakeholder approach to addressing the dual burden of over-consumption and under-nutrition. We are working to raise awareness of the steps the industry is taking in Asia to help address this complex challenge, and we are building effective partnerships between the private sector and governments throughout the region to meet specific public health goals.

FIA harnesses the power of partnerships through evolve, a multi-stakeholder platform to co-create localised solutions that seeks to improve diets and stabilise the rates of malnutrition in Asia.
