Health & Nutrition Week announced

In November 2016, Health & Nutrition Week will make Frankfurt the hotspot of modern nutrition in what UBM, the organisers of Health Ingredients/Natural Ingredients (Hi/Ni) Europe, describe as "a unique showcase for the future of nutrition" - a week-long festival around the topic of natural and healthy food ingredients.

Conscious nutrition nowadays is a huge trend in the United States, Europe and especially in Germany, the company notes. 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.

The week-long festival – from 28 November to 2 December - 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 and nutrition community including world leading experts. Focus of the Health & Nutrition Week is the "Health Ingredients Europe and Natural Ingredients".

Health & Nutrition Week 2016 topics 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
