Health & Nutrition Week will make Frankfurt the hotspot of modern nutrition

fi_health-nutrition-week-logo_rgbConscious nutrition nowadays is a huge trend in the United States, Europe and especially in Germany. Consumers are more and more conscious of what they eat and are looking for healthy, natural and functional foods, making it impossible to imagine German supermarkets without terms like “free from”, “made with natural ingredients”, “vegan” etc. In addition to expressing a personal lifestyle, foods offer solutions for common diseases such as diabetes, obesity, food intolerances and malnutrition later in life. Also societal problems such as large-scale livestock farming can be reduced with the consumption of meat-substitute products. UBM, the world’s largest event organiser of food ingredients events, has announced that it will be hosting the Health & Nutrition Week in Frankfurt from 28 November to 2 December with the support of Messe Frankfurt. This week-long festival will feature a series of activities such as a 465+ strong exhibition, meetings, lectures, panel discussions and other events and will bring together the global health & nutrition community including world leading experts. Focus of the Health & Nutrition Week is the “Health Ingredients Europe and Natural Ingredients”, the world’s most important gathering of those offering and in search of natural and health ingredients.

Topics of the Health & Nutrition Week 2016 include:

  • Health, Nutrition and Wellness
  • Organic products
  • Clean Label / Food Labelling
  • Food science, research and development
  • Food safety and regulatory affairs
  • Food production and retail sales
  • Sports nutrition and science
  • Technology and future of the health and food industry
  • Food & Finance, Agri-banking
