    Fueling Fitness with Brain Power

    Fueling Fitness with Brain Power

    12.05.18

    As sports nutrition goes mainstream, consumers are taking charge of their health and physical fitness. Common goals include improving performance, losing weight, and gaining muscle mass. Ultimately, consumers want solutions that address their needs directly—for example, caffeine for energy, and protein for satiety and muscle building. 

     

    A large majority of products focus on muscle health, performance, and recovery. However, other health needs play an important role in physical well-being. For example, you might be surprised to learn that cognitive health is critical to fitness success. Conditions that challenge our best efforts include lack of sleep, focus, and stress.

    • Emerging insights in sports/active nutrition;
    • The role of cognitive health and the impact on health and fitness;
    • Technology, solutions, and capabilities to address these market needs.

    Keys to Raising Your Quality IQ

    Keys to Raising Your Quality IQ

    03.21.18

    Commitment to quality is the foundation of good business, as it serves consumers and benefits the bottom line. Several highly-publicized incidents have gained attention from the media, regulators, and consumers, affecting the industry at large. At the same time new regulations have come online. For example, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the largest change in FDA guidelines in 70 years.

    These shifts make quality control more than a prescriptive guidance. Successful companies are building new regulatory approaches based on science, continuous improvement, and quality risk management. These processes and practices ultimately distinguish a company’s position in the industry, and with consumers. Mitigating risks through a comprehensive quality control and assurance program helps to ensure the safety and quality of goods sold in the health and nutrition marketplace.

    Participants in this webinar will learn what best-in-class companies are doing to establish their quality processes and practices. Join us to learn more about:

    • Consumer’s expectations and reservations
    • Key lessons and experience of building a world-class quality program
    • New tools, capabilities, and support available to design a quality program
