UOB joins Health & Nutrition Asia 2024 to discuss banking for sustainable food industry

Published at ফেব্রুয়ারি ২০, ২০২৪

International Desk: VNU Group, the international tradeshow organizer of Health & Nutrition Asia 2024, has entered into a strategic content partnership with UOB Thailand to produce the content about the Climate Journey: Steering Collaborative Change along the Animal Protein Value Chain during the half day conference program in Health & Nutrition Asia 2024.

As one of Asia’s leading banks seeking to support responsible growth in animal production and agriculture, UOB brings its commitment to sustainable financial practices and investments for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Asia. This market is a priority for VIV Worldwide, the VNU Group’s global network connecting professionals across the animal feed and food industries.

Mr. Ernest Tan, Executive Director, Head of Consumer Goods, Sector Solutions Group, UOB, said “Rising populations, an expanding middle class and rapid urbanization in Asia are dramatically changing food consumption patterns. However, the region faces constraints around arable land and water per capita. As a key part of the food system, the livestock and agriculture sector needs a just transition to sustainability in order to meet demand without further environmental impact.”

“With UOB’s extensive presence across Asia, we have an opportunity to promote more sustainable practices all along the food production chain. This collaboration with Health and Nutrition Asia provides an important platform to share ideas and solutions with stakeholders in the industry,” he added.

Ms. Panadda Kongma, Vice President Business at VNU Asia Pacific, highlighted the growth momentum in the livestock industry, citing a report by The International Market Analysis Research and Consulting Group: “The global animal health industry is expected to reach a value of USD 37.8 billion in 2023, projected to grow to USD 49.5 billion by 2032, with a CAGR of 2.9% during 2024-2032”.

Ms. Kongma stressed the significance of having UOB as a content partner at Health & Nutrition Asia 2024, stating, “UOB’s conference will shed light on the importance of sustainability across animal protein value chain, the interventions / solutions companies can take to improve sustainability and UOB: Sustainable Financing Solutions. A panel discussion with industry experts will be a highlight of the conference, offering a comprehensive perspective on the sector’s future.
