One year after the success of its 1st edition (more than 120 people coming from dietary supplements brands, academic, ingredients, CMO, etc.), the Congress on Dietary Supplements and Innovation will be held again in Saint-Raphaël (South of France) the 19th & 20th of September.

These Nutriform Business Days (www.nfbd.fr) will be a unique opportunity for food supplement brands to interact with stakeholders – the academia, regulatory experts, consumer and marketing specialists, representatives of the European and French authorities, scientific experts from Europe, from UK, from the United States.

The main theme of this first congress is innovation – whether in terms of product development, marketing and distribution.
Its objective is to provide clear and precise tools so that each of the participants may develop their own strategy and stand out from their competitors.

The discussions will take place in the five plenary conferences and five round tables over the course of two days.

Industrial meetings will also provide specific information on ingredients marketed for this industry.
