The speakers in the forum came from the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) and DOST-ITDI and they have discussed about health and nutrition during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, proper food handling, nutraceuticals and functional ingredients, food packaging contaminants, and food preservatives.

Based on the results of the National Nutritional Survey conducted by DOST-FNRI last 2018-2019, only 44% of the Filipino households are food secure while 56% are not and these might have worsen due to the pandemic and the economic crisis that was caused by the pandemic.
