Malnutrition, including both undernutrition and overnutrition, is not an issue that can be tackled by any party on its own. Instead, it requires a concerted effort from various stakeholders to deliver the message and as it turns out, investing in such initiatives make business sense as well. By Ada Wong, head of public affairs and communications, Asia, FrieslandCampina

Piet Hilarides, chief operating officer, Consumer Products Asia, FrieslandCampina, gives an overview of the dairy industry in Asia and what manufacturers can capitalise on and how they can meet growing consumer demand for dairy products.

With an estimated nine-billion strong global population by 2050, providing sufficient nutrition would require concerted, collective efforts from food manufacturers, producers, governments, civil society and consumers to take place now. By Ada Wong, head of public affairs and communications, Asia, FrieslandCampina

Piet Hilarides is now the chief operating officer of FrieslandCampina's Consumer Products Asia business group.
