More than 40,000 pharmaceutical will visit the CPhI show in Frankfurt this week. But with an ever blurring line and shifting focus between the pharma and nutra industries, NutraIngredients guides you through some of the key nutrition angles to catch while at the show.

CPhI Worldwide, together with co-located events ICSE, InnoPack, P-MEC and FDF, will host more than 42,000 visiting pharma professionals over three days (Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th), with every sector of the pharmaceutical and huge parts of the nutrition industry all represented under one roof in Frankfurt.

With more and more nutritional ingredients companies looking to explore new routes to market, including the potential for use in over the counter (OTC) healthcare products, and other pharmacy-led routes – plus the potential for companies to explore a disease-led, pharmaceutical approach to the market – many in the nutrition industry are starting to see CPhI as an important show to attend.

And with a larger number of pharmaceutical companies taking an active interest in the nutraceutical and functional food space, it’s clear that there is a growing crossover between the two.

Here we spell out some of the key nutrition focused talks and educational sessions at CPhI this week, in addition to offering up our suggestions of just a few more pharma-focused talks that could provide nutrition professionals with new perspectives and some ‘out of the box’ thinking.
