The event’s key host Nick Morgan says: “I think it is quite a defining moment for sports nutrition. It feels there is a positive outlook post COVID as consumers are looking to be proactive towards exercise and nutrition.
“However, whilst there is obvious reward there is arguably never been more risk with brands struggling to navigate the extent of their permission in addition to industry challenges like whey protein prices, containers costs and others.
“And it is these real applied topics that we want to get stuck into in addition to broader discussions on key trends and opportunities in innovation. It is going to be an exciting event”.
