The discussion will focus mostly on marketing nutritious products targeting infant and young children, though most of the lessons learnt apply to other nutritious foods (or even more widely to other beneficial consumer goods). It will share practical insight gathered from extensive research of models in this space by Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition and consulting firm Hystra.
