There is a consumer trend worldwide to demand wellbeing food and drinks to match a healthier lifestyle. This pushes many manufacturers in the global food and drink business to explore the potential of probiotic culture. It opens up new business opportunities for niche manufacturers who develop functional food and beverages with health claims.
Companies in the forefront are able to licence their partners and distribute their products to other geographical markets. By taking advantage of the probiotic culture in dairies, yoghurts and beverages traditional food companies are able to cross the borderlines between healthcare and pharmaceuticals and explore new business opportunities. Innovation is the key to be successful.
To reach this position companies collaborate with universities and biotech firms to deliver added value functional foods and beverages to consumers worldwide. It is already a reality that consumers embrace the concept of wellbeing food and drinks and this will enable the food and drink industry to break new grounds in the 21st century.
Our groundbreaking Functional Foods & Beverages conference will bring together the world leading expertise in the development of probiotic food and drinks with health claims.
