The fifth edition of Nutraceutical Summit 2009, one of the leading events to represent country’s Nutraceutical industry will be held on October 28-30, 2009, at The Lalit in New Delhi.

According to the organisers, ever-increasing competition in the Indian processed food market, demand for more and more qualitative products, rising income and health awareness has led to boost the Indian health and special food ingredients markets.

The organisers said even though the Indian nutraceutical and ingredients market was in a nascent stage, it was growing at a faster pace. Seeing the growth in world market and potential for India, many multinational and Indian pharmaceutical firms are entering in this arena. Also, these companies are introducing nutraceuticals as supplements to their main products in the therapeutic segments. FMCG firms are also venturing into this segment.

health beverages, avenues of business – focus on Ayurceuticals, Cosmacetuticals, Sportaceuticals, dairy processing, marine food supplements, strategies for companies to enter dietary supplements market, transforming SME’s to GNCS (global nutraceutical companies) and others.

The organisers also claim that the conference will offer opportunity to gain perspective through keynote addresses on the state of the industry as well as emerging trends and profit from networking by sharing information.

NuFFooDS Expo
Concurrent to the 5th Nutraceutical Summit, the organisers have also organised “NuFFooDS Expo,” a dedicated B2B platform to encourage business meetings, tie-ups, public-private partnership and buyer & seller meets. Further, B2C will bring the makers of health and food products face to face with the influential groups like dieticians, nutritionists and doctors as well as large health conscious and upwardly mobile consumers of the country.
