In 2019, HPA-China launched a focused conference in Shanghai on the ever-growing industry segment of probiotics. For a first time event, it was a major success with close to 300 attendees.

Although China’s probiotics industry started late, its development speed is extremely rapid. In 2010, the market size of China’s probiotics products was about 22.2 billion RMB. By 2017, it rose to 55.3 billion RMB with an annual growth rate of 17%. If this growth rate is maintained, the market is expected to reach a scale of 142 billion RMB in 2023.

Probiotics China Summit was created to accelerate the interaction between the global probiotic industry and China’s food and supplement industry. The first Probiotics China Summit was held in Shanghai on June 18, 2019 and won widespread praise from the industry.

During the one-day event, there were over 80 brands and 70 supplement OEM manufacturers as well as dozens of probiotics importers and 10 E-commerce retailers in attendance. Some of China’s top food companies sent their R&D teams to gain the latest information on this growing sector. The 2019 summit was sponsored by the following industry leaders:
