How to guarantee a quality supply chain for food supplements? The event organized by Tecniche Nuove in partnership with Pharmintech, will be held on April 11th during the two days dedicated to the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmeceutical and biotechnology industries.

Market data on food supplements

The market for food supplements is constantly growing and, in Europe, Italy has a leadership position, with Euromonitor projections that will see it hold, in 2021, 20.6% of the entire European turnover of the sector.

In 2018, according to FederSalus data, Italy was once again the main market in Europe in terms of size and growth (23%) – with 3.3 billion euro and a positive trend of + 5% – followed by Germany (13% ), France (9%) and UK (8%).
The sector is growing in all geographical areas, in line with the change in people’s approach to their health, and the publications of the international scientific community on food supplements are multiplying.

The consumption of supplements therefore increases and with it the need for manufacturers to innovate the offer: just think that 91% of the value growth of the integrators (136 million euros) is linked to new launches and that the investments in new machines and plants, research and development, training, new technologies represent 11% of turnover (Federsalus data).
All this requires particular attention both to raw materials and to the development of production processes at the forefront of both regulatory and communication aspects.
