The global nutraceutical event
With consumer awareness of functional nutrition higher than ever, and science and technology driving exciting new innovations, the future for nutraceuticals is looking bright.
The number of nutrition industry professionals who find the EU regulatory framework unhelpful has risen sharply over the past year, research shows.
Digestive health has hit the top of the nutraceutical industry’s agenda for the first time, a new survey shows. Experts have attributed the findings to growing consumer awareness of the importance of healthy gut microbiota, and of the potential of probiotics.
Many people working in the nutrition industry feel positive about the EU’s new process for the approval of novel foods, new research by the organisers of Vitafoods Europe shows. However, experts are warning that there could be adverse implications for some companies’ intellectual property portfolios.
How can personalised nutrition break out of its niche and achieve mass market appeal? This will be one of the major questions tackled at next year’s Vitafoods Europe, which returns to Palexpo, Geneva between 15 and
17 May 2018.
Vitafoods Europe has enjoyed another record-breaking year, with visitor and exhibitor numbers both significantly up on 2016. Almost 20,000 (19,951) visitors attended the global nutraceutical event in Geneva between 9 and 11 May – 13% more than last year. Furthermore, a record 1,034 companies exhibited – up 15% on 2016.
Europe’s probiotics market will continue to miss opportunities without a comprehensive approach that gives consumers accurate information. Probiotics will be a major focus at this year’s event (9 - 11 May, Palexpo, Geneva).
Almost two thirds of nutrition companies are implementing new forms of technology, with around half increasing their R&D spend this year, new research has shown.
Nutrition companies view stricter EU regulation as a greater challenge than the state of the global economy, new research has shown. Meanwhile, Brexit is not widely expected to have a major impact on the European nutrition industry.
Political and economic uncertainties have failed to dent optimism in the nutrition industry, research carried out exclusively for Vitafoods Europe 2017, the global nutraceutical event, has shown.
Personalised nutrition is rapidly emerging as a key issue for the long term future of the industry, new research has shown. Vitafoods Europe visitors where asked what they saw as the three most important trends in the nutrition industry.
Vitafoods Europe, the global nutraceutical event, has announced a major shake-up of its Education Programme, which will enable delegates to tailor their experience to their own business objectives.
Vitafoods Europe 2016 welcomed a total of 17,666 visitors through its doors – an increase of 13% over last year, and an all-time high. For the first time this year Vitafoods Europe took place across four halls at Palexpo, creating extra exhibition space for more stands and visitor attractions.
Vitafoods Asia, the world’s leading pan-Asian nutraceutical event, will be held in Singapore in 2017, it has been announced. Following extensive consultation with exhibitors and visitors, event organiser Informa Exhibitions has taken the decision to move Vitafoods Asia out of Hong Kong for the first time, in order to broaden its appeal further within the Asia Pacific region and worldwide.
