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.
