Nestle looks East
Back in Feb 2011 I wrote about the formation of Nestle Health Sciences, based in Lausanne, that was set up to develop a scientific base for personalized health science and nutrition. It will develop and launch specialist food-based products to help prevent and treat conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes and heart disease.
The line between food and disease prevention is closing fast. Soon it will not be good enough to eat a healthy diet but one with the right balance of disease prevention additives.
This market will be zillions of dollars.
As you will see from the video, Nestle has just formed a new partnership that will give it access to one of the world‟s leading Traditional Chinese Medicine libraries. NSP will focus on gastrointestinal health and may in the future expand into the metabolic disease and brain health areas. Dick Stroud
