Background

Today, some key trends impacting consumer behavior in the Vitamin Minerals Supplements (VMS) category include the following: 

  • Employing technology to navigate a complex ecosystem - The rise of technology is making it easier for consumers to make more informed choices for health needs when faced with myraid of products in the market
  • Personalization - Technology also helps to provide consumers with more personalised solutions and provides confidence that the solution is efficacious.
  • Food is medicine - There is greater consumer awareness that certain foods provide significant nutritional benefits, therefore reducing the need for supplementation
  • Wellness>Health - Consumers are aware nutrition is just one part of their overall wellness ecosystem.

We are looking for VMS innovations to support the physical/ mental/social wellbeing of consumers (infants, toddlers, kids, mothers-to-be, elderly, etc), and technology that would help these consumers make more informed choices for better control and outcome of their health.
