Natural & Organic expands 12% • Functional foods grow 6% • Russian supplement market jumps 35% • H1N1 flu stimulates supplement sales growth worldwide

BOULDER, COLO., (January 6, 2010) – New Hope Natural Media’s Nutrition Business Journal® (NBJ) today announced a live online presentation of new Global Nutrition Industry market research and intelligence on Thursday, January 21, 2010 at 1 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.

Nutrition Business Journal’s 2010 Global Nutrition Industry Web Seminar will address the many challenges and opportunities facing the U.S. & Global markets. Presented only once every two years and derived from aggregated analysis of more than 100 credible sources worldwide, NBJ's 2010 Global Nutrition Industry Web Seminar addresses market size and growth in supplements, functional foods, natural & organic foods, natural & organic personal care and household products.

Capsugel Senior Manager of Global Business Development Peter Zambetti, NBJ Publisher and Editorial Director Patrick Rea and NBJ Editor Carlotta Mast will present NBJ’s latest global market data from more than 20 geographic regions on six continents and discuss findings from NBJ’s 2009 Global Nutrition Industry Issue mailed to subscribers in December. Regions analyzed include: United States, China, Germany, France, U.K., Japan, Spain, Italy, Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, India, Poland, the rest of Asia and more.

“The global recession did its best to tear away at nutrition industry sales last year, but growth continued in the vast majority of markets—with China, Latin America, Australia/New Zealand, Eastern Europe/Russia and the Middle East each achieving double-digit expansion in 2008. According to Nutrition Business Journal estimates, total global sales are expected to rise another 6% to 10% in 2009. On the supplement front, the outbreak of the H1N1 flu pandemic, which surfaced in Mexico in April 2009 and touched nearly every country in the world by August, is helping to lift sales all over the globe as well,” said NBJ Editor Carlotta Mast.
