According to Sami Sassi from the conference’s organizing committee there is good interest to participate in the conference both from academia and industry alike. "The number of abstracts already received is good and so is the number of sponsors. The interest for resveratrol is strong globally and we have both our old trusted supporters working with us for the project together with few new ones,” he said.
DSM is one of the founding parties of the conference and has been supporting it since it’s inception in 2010. According to Ruedi Duss, global business and marketing manager for DSM’s ingredient resVida, participation for the Resveratrol2016-Conference is important part of the product’s identity. “ResVida has undergone 10 years of development and testing by DSM together with the leading universities globally. Resveratrol2016-Conference is an excellent forum for us to present our science for academia and to find new partners for future co-operation. ResVida has comprehensive safety data that is unmatched by any other form of resveratrol and is one of the leading resveratrol dietary and food ingredients to meet a high safety standard. We’ll be once again presenting new studies that will support our already strong sales for resVida.”
One of the new supporters for the conference is Mega Resveratrol from Danbury, CT. Mega Resveratrol is a pharmaceutical-grade product micronized for optimal absorption and bioavailability. The company specializes in high purity, natural and vegetarian trans-resveratrol products in the form of capsules and powders. For CEO Doron Efrat it is the focus on resveratrol that makes the Resveratrol2016-Conference so interesting. “We want to be in contact with the leading scientists globally working with resveratrol and the Resveratrol2016-Conference is the perfect venue for that. Our customers value the science behind our product and our participation in the Resvertarol2016-Conference is also important commercially for Mega Resveratrol.”
