The 4th Probiotics Congress: Asia

Co-hosts and Main Sponsors



Dietary supplements manufactured by incorporating various strains of probiotics are well established and are widely recognised as providing “dietary support”. However, the diversity of the Asia-Pacific region – geographically, culturally and economically – has produced variations in the gut microbiome, an important factor if functional probiotics are going to an effective tool to managing food allergies and potentially reverse certain disorders and diseases.

Against this backdrop, I am delighted to announce that the 4th Probiotics Congress Asia is co-sponsored by the Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology, GloRIA and the National Central University. The congress takes place on the 6th and 7th of March 2019 in Taiwan. It is co-located with the 5th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress Asia. 

The interface between pre & probiotics and the microbiome has become an increasingly interesting area of research. Early indications suggest that probiotics offer a potentially promising approach for preventing microbial dysbiosis. An interesting example of this is research from the US that has explored the potential of probiotics to restore the natural infant microbiome with immediate impacts such as a significant reduction of the carriage of antibiotic resistance and virulence genes, a lowering of colonic pH, and a major reduction of gut pathogens.

By hosting these two events at the same time we have provided you with a unique opportunity to be at a meeting where the cross-over between microbiome and probiotics research is a reality.

With a strong focus on Asia, including an update from the Asian gut microbiome project, this unique meeting is unmissable. It brings together leading global and regional researchers and key industry players working towards bringing microbiome discoveries to the market. As part of the Taiwanese GloRIA initiative, this is an unprecedented opportunity to create new large-scale collaborative networks inside the Pacific Rim and beyond.

Our full speaker panel can be found here


Be part of a meeting that provides time and space for sharing knowledge and networking opportunities that help the development of meaningful long-term relationships as well as excellent learning outcomes. Over two days you will find out more about the exciting research into probiotic strains and strategies for proving their efficacy and effective manufacturing, packaging and storage processes,

With built-in networking sessions, expertly led case study presentations, a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions, and panel discussions exploring key issues in the field this meeting is one you should not miss.
