About the ISDI virtual event series

On 20 January, ISDI launched a virtual event series on policy and regulatory issues related to special dietary foods. It goes beyond an online seminar experience – it’s designed to bring the special dietary foods community together in new and exciting ways at a time when staying connected matters most.

These virtual events over the course of 2021 will bring together a first class faculty of international speakers from authorities, academia and industry. They will share their knowledge and experience on a comprehensive range of topical issues relating to special dietary foods:

  • NCDs & malnutrition
  • Infant nutrition (innovations, nutrient deficiencies)
  • Regulatory environment (complementary foods, baby formula)
  • Food safety (additives, contaminants)
  • Medical nutrition (stability of nutrients in FSMPs)
  • Analytical methods 

The programme is spread over the year and will include several events per quarter, packed with world-class experts, panel discussions, engaging breakout discussions, special social hours, and more.
