Vitafoods Asia, the event that shapes the food industry for optimal health through science and innovation, returns to Singapore between 25-26 September 2019.
31 May 2019, Singapore – At Vitafoods Asia, buyers can source products that address core and new health areas, such as combating the effects of pollution by using an oral nutraceutical.
Monteloeder is a returning exhibitor at Vitafoods Asia 2019, because, “Vitafoods Asia is a good platform to interact with customers from Southeast Asia” says Ignacio Cartegna, Vice President of Sales for Monteloeder.
“Our company develops branded ingredients that we sell in more than 40 countries,” adds Cartegna. He says that the main challenge is a “lack of resources and the disparity of legislation. If you want to develop something different, supported by clinical studies, that comply with the legislation, and that is capable of competing in the market you need resources.”
In Asia, particularly in China, India, Korea and Vietnam, pollution is a serious issue to which, Cartegna comments, Monteloeder are responding. “Exposure to air pollutants have been associated with premature skin ageing, dryness, acne, skin rashes, pigmentation problems, wrinkles. Among all the pollutants, particle matters of more than 2.5 μm are especially dangerous as they penetrate deep the lung tissues and are linked to many diseases.
This year, at Vitafoods Asia, he says, “We are presenting Zero Pollution, which is the first oral ingredient to prevent and repair some of the damaging effects leading to pollution exposure, especially on the skin. So, it is a skin product.”
To help companies like Monteloeder, Vitafoods Asia provides solutions for entities of any size to build a nutraceuticals business in Asia. Visitors to Vitafoods Asia can leverage the exhibition and conference to source ingredients and raw materials, meet with contract manufacturers, source branded finished products, discover packaging options, or source services that help address research, marketing, packaging, product development or regulatory issues.
