Major issues to be discussed at the meeting include laying out conditions of food fibre and methodologies to find the volume of fibre in the food, according to Dr. Charal, adding that it would benefit Thailand because the country exports a large volume of vegetable and fruit drinks.

Other significant issues to be discussed are reviewing quality standards for infant food and analysis of possible risks from food containing either excessive vitamins, or their lack.
