Human life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past centuries. Today we can expect to live nearly 50 years more than in the 18the century. Better public health, better food safety, food security and diet are some of the main causes for the populations living longer and this is a challenge in particular in developed countries both for families and for the healthcare system. This conference addresses the challenge and presents different approaches from China and the Nordic countries. It builds on the long-lasting cooperation between the two regions within the food and nutritional care in the framework of Food4Growth. It gives forecasts of the nature of the challenge and solutions that can address the challenge. It outlines solutions that we have identified to be the most challenging. The conference takes a closer look at the Nordic approach in relation to how eating, nutrition and food service can be dealt with in ageing societies in order to secure safe, nutritious, healthy and liveable eating solutions. It presents some of the promising results from the last decades of R&D in Denmark and China.
