Join us to explore the role of nutraceuticals in enhancing health & nutrition through AgBioAsia 2014

The global market for Nutraceuticals is projected to reach US$250 billion by 2018 largely driven by the need for a disease free lifestyle, according to a Grant Thornton Study. Nutraceuticals have entered the world food market and have gained tremendous importance in the last few years in most developed countries. While USA and Japan are leaders in the segment, India, China and Brazil promises huge potential. With the mushrooming population and the percentage of undernourished children, India is poised to overtake China and represents an extremely favourable market for the growth of Nutraceuticals.

Recognizing the potential of India's rich and traditional natural resources that form the basis of Nutraceutical products, AgBioAsia will also focus on Health and Nutrition in order to leverage on this strength and transform the potentials into successful business opportunities. Besides, the conference will also focus on novel concepts to complement research & development in the nutraceutical sector, creating awareness, and generating social, economic and environmental benefits. Aimed at driving scientifically validated solutions, products and enterprises for the benefit of society, the event will connect the traditional knowledge to modern practices, science & technology and emerging business opportunities in the area of health and wellness.

Despite introduction of new regulatory regime in 2011-12, the sector continues to face challenges with product registrations, facility approvals, labeling and advertising, etc. Hence, the event will aim at developing key recommendations for industry and government for an organized and effective harnessing of nutraceutical and food technology potentials in the overall healthcare. This shall be achieved through a concerted effort involving the private sector, academia, government agencies and most importantly the entrepreneurs who shall be the key in building capacities, creating awareness and driving the growth of the nutraceutical industry. The need of the hour is to evolve the nutraceutical industry based on strong scientific and legal foundations. Overall, the discussions shall highlight India's strengths and the emerging opportunities in addition to address the challenge of preserving India's traditional and natural nutraceutical resources.
