It is estimated that 20% of the European population is over the age of 65 years, a figure that is expected to increase to 30% by 2030. One of the key health concerns of an ageing population is optimising bone health and this, together with an increased focus on children’s health, is leading manufacturers to invest in the development of products intended to build and maintain strong bones.
Leatherhead’s one-day conference Bone Health – Opportunities and Challenges for the Food Industry, held in collaboration with the National Osteoporosis Society, will deliver a diverse and exciting programme combining speakers from academia and industry to give up-to-date research on bone health and the importance of nutrition in maintaining healthy bones. Speakers from industry will discuss developments in the ingredients sector, and research showing their efficacy, together with the latest new global innovations in products launched on the bone health platform. Experts from Leatherhead’s regulatory and market intelligence departments will discuss the current status and limitations on bone health claims and the potential growth of this market. Further case study presentations will demonstrate how these trends are shaping manufacturer’s developments. Overall, this conference will give a complete overview of bone health, one of the most promising areas of development in functional foods.
