Product development has grown by leaps and bound over the past decade. New and novel ingredients are being introduced with higher frequency and multi-functional products with proven efficacy are becoming the order of the day.

Eminent speakers will share their knowledge and experience in this area and the paneI discussion towards, the end of the conference will provide opportunity for participants and speakers to interact and exchange knowledge.
