Background

Southeast Asia is home to more than 600 million people with diverse cultures, diets and stages of economic development. Science helps determine optimum diets (including indigenous foods), sustainable agricultural productivity and paths to reduced inputs and environmental impact. Innovation is important for progress, which includes novel proteins, food engineering, drones and digitalization, as well as new plant breeding technologies and improved sensors for health and pathogens. Education on utilizing these technologies will be essential for stakeholders from food producers to consumers. This event will present some of the challenges and opportunities and host a panel discussion on steps for progress.

Food and nutrition are key determinants of our overall health status; and poor nutrition and lifestyle choices contribute significantly to chronic disease risk. In today's world, the food system has multiple players across the entire food chain with government, academia, industry and the general public working together to bring food to our tables. Science and technology are critical to make our food supply safe, sustainable, and nutritious. Scientists need to work with both government and industry to ensure sustainable diets are possible. However, criticisms are sometimes levied on industry collaboration with governments, questioning the integrity of the science being undertaken.

The International Life Sciences Institute Southeast Asia (ILSI SEA) Region is hosting a virtual 2.5hr-workshop with key experts working on the important topic of Science and Research Integrity on June 24, 2021, with particular focus on issues facing scientists in Southeast Asia.

  • Obtain views and perspectives from experts working on guiding integrity standards in science and research
  • Provide an overview of current efforts in the SEA Region to support scientific integrity in food and nutrition research
  • Facilitate the development of a regional network for supporting Scientific Integrity in science research and public health programs

Background

Nutrition information on food labels has been recognised as one of the strategies adopted to assist consumers in adopting healthy dietary practices. Nutrition information would include nutrition labelling (or nutrition information panel - NIP), nutrition and health claims, front-of-pack (FOP) nutrition labelling and ingredient list.

Recognising the potential of such nutrition information to help consumers in making informed food choices in planning healthier diets, the Ministry of Health (MOH) Malaysia amended the Food Regulations 1985 to mandate nutrition labelling for a wide variety of foods and made provisions for nutrition claims in 2003. Such nutrition information on food labels is also of importance to the food industry as food manufacturers would become more aware of the nutritional properties of their products and be encouraged to emphasise these properties to consumers.

In line with global developments and the public health needs of the country, MOH Malaysia gazetted many further amendments to the Food Regulations 1985 in July 2020, in relation to food labelling, nutrition labelling and nutrition and health claims. It is important to have a clear understanding of these amendments as they would have important impact on how all stakeholders perform their duties and businesses. These include food manufacturers, health care professionals, researchers and eventually impact on the consumers.

This regulatory update webinar focuses on these amendments, especially those contained in Food (amendment) No. 4, P.U. (A) 209, dated 21 July 2020.

Background

Southeast Asia is home to more than 600 million people with diverse cultures, diets and stages of economic development. Science helps determine optimum diets (including indigenous foods), sustainable agricultural productivity and paths to reduced inputs and environmental impact. Innovation is important for progress, which includes novel proteins, food engineering, drones and digitalization, as well as new plant breeding technologies and improved sensors for health and pathogens. Education on utilizing these technologies will be essential for stakeholders from food producers to consumers. This event will present some of the challenges and opportunities and host a panel discussion on steps for progress.
