Our peer-to-peer roundtable focuses on protein for athletes, and trends for product developers, including protein sources, personalisation, and the rise of plant-based alternatives.

– Day four, Healthy Ageing: the final daily theme offers market research insights into consumers’ new focus on wellness, the alignment between healthy ageing and personalised nutrition, and much more.
