The Dietary Supplements Feature Area

In partnership with SYNADIET (the French dietary supplement association), Natexpo takes centre stage with the introduction of the Dietary Supplements feature. As a platform for innovation and information, it will allow the sector’s buyers and sellers to get up to date on the latest industry developments and develop their business and know-how.

Through about 15 talks and a permanent exhibition on the raw materials used in dietary supplements, this space offers visitors advice, information and training on a range of topics such as nutritional advice for people with special diets (vegetarians, vegans, athletes, elderly people, pregnant women, slimming or gluten-free diets, etc.), plants that can be used for everyday health, specific regulations on plant-based dietary supplements…

In addition to the discovery of plants used in food supplements, SYNADIET will present their history and age-old traditional use in many parts of the world.
