Consumers across the world are looking for ways to improve both longevity and quality of life; however, this is no small feat. With many internal and external factors, healthy ageing is a multifaceted process influenced by all areas of life. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines healthy ageing as “the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age.” Such functional ability refers to an individual's intrinsic capacity, including the ability to walk, think, see, hear, and remember. It also accounts for individuals’ externalities such as different communities, societies, relationships, values, and services.
People are living longer, and every country is seeing growth in their older populations' numbers. The rate of ageing is faster than ever. The WHO estimates that by 2050, the share of the world’s population aged 60 years or older will nearly double from 12% to 22%. As ageing populations continue to rise, consumers across different demographics are becoming more aware of the role that nutrition plays in healthy ageing.
