The global ageing population is expected to reach 2 billion consumers by 2050 (2.1% annual growth).
There is a growing need for protein-fortified solutions to provide the senior consumer with the nutrition they need.
Around the world, patients and the elderly can find it difficult to get the nutrition they need to recover well and stay healthy as they age. Much of the nutrition offered is unattractive in taste and texture, limited in variety, and not resembling ‘normal food.’ Patients and the elderly often have a reduced ability to chew, swallow, taste, metabolise and digest.
The needs of the growing ageing population, and forecasts indicating that the functional food market will be worth USD $63.3 billion by 2022 (2.7% CAGR), present an opportunity for food and beverage producers to create great tasting nutritional solutions.
NZMP’s Medical Nutrition team have teamed up with a food manufacturer to combine the goodness of dairy and world-leading expertise to create a range of delicious high protein concepts to meet the taste and texture issues that elderly and patients face.
Our nutritional protein solutions will be available to sample at the NZMP stand (No. H120) at Vitafoods Europe 2018 . Alternatively, you can book a meeting in advance with one of our team via the contact form below.
