ARoFIIN presented as sustainable public-private partnership at EAT Forum


Matt Kovac, Executive Director of Food Industry Asia (FIA), was part of a panel discussion on “The Money: Business Practices and Sustainability” on 13 June, as part of the EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.


 

Among other topics, Mr Kovac spoke about nutrition literacy and the role played by sustainable public-private partnerships, like the Asia Roundtable on Food Innovation for Improved Nutrition (ARoFIIN), in tackling obesity and non-communicable diseases in the Asia region. Mr Kovac highlighted how, in two short years, ARoFIIN has been able to draw on resources from governments, academia, non-governmental organisations and industry in addressing challenges of obesity and undernutrition with a whole-of-society approach.
