The meeting aimed to promote the establishment of an O2O (online to offline) business platform for sugar reduction. The sugar reduced business platform is to integrate strategies including technology research and development. The cooperation is fully supported and arranged by the working committee of ”Belt and Road”. By introducing the Swedish healthy lifestyle and sugar reduced concept, Bayn is able to export sugar reduction know-how and apply their R&D to new product development without added sugar benefiting consumer products.
”We are glad that our sugar reduced concept is acknowledged by JingDong, which can be an efficient market channel to their more than 260 million active users. We have discussed both on-line and off-line set up”, says Lucy Dahlgren, CEO of Bayn. ”We have mapped out a strategic direction for a sugar reduction market in China, and also for a technology development strategy including cloud platform integration and sugar reduced blockchain. We believe the O2O business platform forms a significant foundation for our business set-up in China and it will become a solid platform for all sugar reduction commitments globally.”
”We have studied and evaluated the Bayn sugar reduced concept since last year. We understand that sugar reduction means food system change, not only technically but economically. We are aware of the need for sugar reduction in China and we are glad that JingDong and Bayn had this first-time meeting to discuss a from evidence to action strategy”, says Yang Zhou, the executive director of the working committee of Belt and Road.
