GELITA to Host Global Food and Active Nutrition Symposium






Hear the very latest developments in “Active Lifestyle – Active Nutrition” from highly regarded international speakers


GELITA, the world’s leading manufacturer of gelatine and collagen peptides, will be hosting its biannual Food and Health & Nutrition Symposium in Heidelberg, Germany, on 23–24 October. Speakers from diverse areas of expertise will provide food for thought and hands-on sessions to examine the dynamic environment of active nutrition and novel product design concepts.

As a regular industry platform to exchange ideas and network, the GELITA Symposium aims to inspire anyone who’s involved in the development or marketing of food products to think beyond the box and not only see what’s possible, but what others are doing as well.

Along with regular food items and novel ingredients, the popularity of dietary supplements and functional food products continues to growing, offering a wide variety of benefits across a wide spectrum of markets and applications.

Taking to the podium this year and addressing these issues, Daniel Anthes, Senior Associate at Zukunftsinstitut GmbH, will discuss how megatrends are shaping our food culture, whereas GELITA’s own Suzane Leser will take a close look at what’s hot in sports and active nutrition.


Amongst others, Marius Robles, cofounder of Food by Robots, will examine “eatnomics,” the new food economy, and Edelman’s Sebastian Schwark will present the Trust Barometer 2019, demonstrating the level of consumer trust in food ingredients.

As ever, the GELITA Symposium will provide a highly interactive environment with attractive hands-on sessions to look taste and feel inspiring aspects of food development. Industry professionals from all over the world are encouraged to attend this exceptional event, which runs for two half-days.

The 300 Euro attendance fee covers hotel accommodation and catering, as well as a special once in a lifetime evening event.
