Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the demand for Health Ingredients [Webinar]

This webinar explores consumer trends following the COVID-19 outbreak, products currently in high demand, new technologies and where the focus might be going forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruptions to the everyday lives of people across the globe. The virus not only poses a threat to the elderly, but also to those with serious underlying medical conditions such as heart conditions, diabetes and obesity. As a result, people are forced to review their daily routines, and consumer behaviours have been shifting.

People are becoming more health conscious and the demand for products which are believed to improve immune health has increased significantly. Products containing health and immune supporting properties such as vitamins, probiotics and adaptogens are in high demand at the moment, but what other products are likely to receive more attention in future?

With the prolonged lockdown across the globe and after preliminary panic buying of food, what long-term effect will the virus have on the market trends? How have companies adapted to this new situation and is a shift in consumer interests inevitable?
