Between the New Products Zone which showcases the latest and most innovative products on the market, a VitaTrends section that provides insight into the latest trends in nutrition, and a networking session, Vitafoods Asia is considered the trade event of the year in Asia for nutraceutical professionals to hobnob.
World Suicide Prevention Day
The World Health Organization (WHO) is a co-sponsor of the event that promotes suicide awareness and efforts to prevent suicide. WHO estimates "3,000 people commit suicide daily," equaling "one death every 40 seconds" worldwide. Prevention is key as "for every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may attempt to end their lives."
