Event Overview

Functional foods, health and dietary supplements market in India, expected to grow by 20 percent to USD 6.1 billion in 2019 – 2020 is one of the fastest growing food segments. Increasing health consciousness, income and standards of living has boosted this growth. As an effect of much-awaited enforcement of FSSAI regulations implemented from 1st of January 2018, the manufacturers have to ensure compliance with their existing and new products. With the new regulations, there is a visible paradigm shift in the licensing norms, product approvals and marketing strategies.

Moreover, a recent Assocham-RNCOS joint research has revealed that 60 per cent to 70 per cent of dietary supplements sold across India are fake, counterfeit, unregistered and unapproved and are extremely difficult to identify. With the assistance of new regulation, efforts are directed towards making use of the time to throw light on new licensing norms, approvals that will be now necessary and mark the future paradigm of marketing among others.
