Food Industry

"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." (Hippocrates, 400 bc).

The global functional foods market continues to be a dynamic and growing segment of the food industry. The world market for functional foods and drinks is expected to reach $130 billion by 2015. Market growth is fuelled by product innovation and increasingly health-conscious consumers. Functional foods and nutraceuticals provide an opportunity to improve health and reduce health care costs.
Rapid growth will continue for several years, and functional foods are expected to represent a significant share of the total global food market.
