Did you know 87% of menopausal women feel overlooked by brands and society?

So, how can you better connect and communicate with women as they move towards and journey through the menopause?

The global menopause market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.29% from 2022 to 2030 to reach USD 24.4 billion by 2030 and consumers will spend where they see representation.

People experiencing the menopause are continuously overlooked. Products are either not available in the UK, or simply do not exist. And with 50% of the population going through this life transition, how can we better meet the needs of these consumers?

Join this dynamic and informative panel of experts who will discuss how to improve the menopause experience through normalising the conversation. Find out how you could develop products that fulfil menopause-specific needs and the healthy diet.

There will even be the opportunity to get your questions answered in the extended Q&A session to really galvanise your business in this exciting sector.

How to deliver foods and supplements with scientifically proven joint and bone health benefits

Date: Thursday 19 January 2023

Time: 14:30 – 16:00 GMT

Booking: Complimentary (booking fee applies)

How do you deliver foods and supplements that are scientifically proven to benefit joint and bone health?

As consumers take a long-term and holistic approach to health, they will look to make changes to their diets and lifestyle to aid their joint and bone health. With this global market set to grow from 11.7 Billion in 2022 to 17.6 billion by 2027, there is a big opportunity for products that support joint health and allows consumers to stay active.

The global bone and joint health supplements market consists of a variety of supplements, including Vitamin D, K, Calcium, Collagen, Omega 3-Fatty Acid and Glucosamine-Chondroitin.

Consumers want to be convinced with scientific evidence. As they do not always physically see or feel the direct effects of taking a health ingredient in the short term – they are willing to try innovative products and ingredients, provided the benefits are proven.

This dynamic and informative expert panel will discuss the latest trends and strategies to grow the functional food and drink market around joint and bone health claims.

Panellists will examine how to deliver supplements and foods that are backed by scientifically proven joint and bone health benefits and create urgency among consumers for consumption.

What factors impact the likelihood of achieving adequate nutritional status in pregnancy?

Achieving adequate nutritional status during pregnancy is a challenge and there are a broad range of factors that can affect people expecting.

How to win in eSports nutrition

Why is it so important to have good nutrition in eSports?

The popularity of eSports has increased rapidly in recent years and is set to rise. ESports is one of the fastest growing segments in the nutrition market with the market expecting to reach US $398,950 million in revenue by 2026 and predicting to grow at a CAGR of 11% during 2021-26. 

Panellists will examine how to deliver nutritional supplements and food tailored to the needs of gamers with formulations that contain synergistically acting bioactive ingredients. How can we make sure these claims are backed by scientifically proven health benefits? And how do we deliver them in a format convenient for eSports players?

As eSports become more professional, eSport athletes require higher levels of cognitive abilities and motor skills for optimal performance. Like more traditional athletes, they may also benefit from adequate body composition and proper nutrition. However, there is a noticeable shortage of scientific knowledge in this area, especially around their nutrition.

This dynamic and informative expert panel will analyse the nutritional strategies that may enhance health, cognitive performance, decrease reaction time and minimise fatigue.
