Consultancy Offers Perspectives On Growth In Functional Foods, Key Food Safety Issues

February 1, 2010: 02:04 AM EST
The strong growth over the past decade in functional foods that promise better health, increased longevity and prevention of chronic disease, is likely to continue, driven by two key demographic sectors: aging baby boomers and younger consumers, according to consultancy Cook Associates. Aging consumers are looking for foods that can solve or prevent specific health problems. Younger consumers, meanwhile, are buying probiotics, energy drinks, and vitamin beverages. This article also discusses safety-related food issues, including demands for more hygienic food production and distribution, calls for more informative labeling, and potential legislation related to the national obesity problem.
