D0704 Health Ingredient Opportunities (275)

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Objective and Background

The client sought opportunities preferably at a later stage, with a product on the market. Some areas of specific interest were: cardiovascular health, digestive (gut) health, glycaemic health, oral health, weight management, antibiotics, anti-oxidants, cognitive health products, energy products, eye health products, immune health products and products for healthy joints and bones.

Emphasis was placed on product opportunities rather than on new molecules e.g. ideally, these new products/ingredients will have been on the market for at least three years. The search was extended beyond the food ingredient area and included ingredients from other sectors such as dietary supplements.

~300 contacts were made including ~90 with public sector bodies including research institutes and centres, universities and technology transfer groups, and ~180 venture capital or investment companies amongst other contacts in the health ingredient industry. ~5000 abstracts were examined for ideas. Several thousand patent abstracts were examined.

The opportunities were divided into later and earlier stage opportunities and then sub-divided into health and nutrition sectors.
