Nutrition Business Journal: July 2016

In the race to the shelves in sports nutrition, marketing is too often sprinting across the finish line while science is still warming up. Products make it to market, unproven and unready. Studies are cited before they are published. The sprint to profit in the “what’s next?” relay is an event often ill-suited to the slow and steady methodology of hard, and expensive, science.

Condition-specific: what is the perfect mix of ingredients and supplements for individual ailments?

Learn the successes and pitfalls of companies focused on this question, and learn more about why the industry is perhaps trending away from specific conditions toward general vitality in NBJ's August Healthy Solutions issue.


Nutrition Business Journal: September 2016

Innovation plays a key role in an industry constantly looking for the next way to bring more health to more people. Innovation as it relates to communicating with consumers, distributing products, and most importantly, the products themselves.

Our September issue focuses on advances in these areas in the supplement industry, as well as the possible effects of the new, potentially innovation-squashing NDI Guidances.


Nutrition Business Journal: October 2016

In our modern age where the vast majority of the population has the answer to ‘what does X do?’ in their hand-held Google-accessing machine (read: iPhone), people are no longer content answering that lone question. The follow-up is typically ‘where did X come from?’ and to react correctly companies need a quality, reputable, transparent supply chain process.

Learn what to look for in a supply chain and how to promote those characteristics to the public in our October Supply Chain issue.


Nutrition Business Journal: November 2016

Personalized nutrition holds a promise for the health of the people like nothing the supplement industry has ever conceived. Optimized health with optimized precision. The best mission of supplements has always been to keep people healthy rather than treating the sick, and personalized nutrition might do that. The right nutrients in the right doses for the right people.

Learn more about the future in the November Personalized Nutrition issue.


Nutrition Business Journal: March 2017

In the second annual installment in Nutrition Business Journal’s exploration of the supplement industry’s dark side, the less responsible elements get held up to the light. There is no shortage of rogues in this year’s gallery, but will a shift in the regulatory climate bring more rats out of their lairs? Is self-policing more important than ever? And where should the searchlight focus? Those are just some of the questions addressed in Dark Issue 2, as NBJ calls out the bad players and challenges the better actors to step up.

Nutrition Business Journal: April 2017

A time has come for business, and perhaps the natural products industry in particular, to step up. With governments marching into political paralysis, trapped in a cycle of idealogy eclipsing positive action, the need has never been greater for companies to make decisions that are good for the people and the planet but also, good for their bottom lines. Business as a force for good? Yes. It's possible, even profitable, for corporations to make the right decisions. And that's what we found in the winners of every award we gave this year.


Nutrition Business Journal: September 2017

The millennial generation is certainly more than the sum of its keystrokes (or its stereotypes). They are defined by the digital, but engage in earnest with the real world every day. They communicate in texts and tweets, but build relationships on values impossible to capture in 140 characters. That there should be some entanglement of technology and health should be no surprise.

The first-ever NBJ Millennial Issue brings us face-to-face with its complexities. At 92 million, the millennials dwarf the 61 million Gen Xers and even eclipse the 77 million baby boomers who so defined half of the 20th century. More than that, the NBJ research underpinning this issue reveals that those 92 million consumers, each of us a few inches of screen away from a purchase decision, are not only concerned about their health, they’re quantifying it, researching it and taking charge of it.

Nutrition Business Journal: May 2017

Multiple factors and forces suggest the practitioner channel is drawing closer to a number of next big things, any or all of which could drive the supplement distributors and brands working in that space into a new era of acceptance and success.

There’s still one big reason why people aren’t buying their groceries online

Eighty-four percent of shoppers say they don’t order groceries online because they prefer to physically see and choose them for themselves, according to new research from Morgan Stanley. While that number was unchanged from the year prior, the share of people who tried but didn’t like ordering groceries online increased from 17 percent to 27 percent in 2017. Read more at Quartz…


Imported organic food may be falling short of U.S. certification

An audit overseen by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General found that the agency’s Agricultural Marketing Service couldn’t prove that all imports labeled as organic were verified to be from certified organic farms and businesses overseas. The agency also, apparently, hasn’t perfected how to make sure that imports sprayed for insects at the port don't end up labeled as organic. “The lack of controls at U.S. ports of entry increases the risk that non-organic products may be imported as organic into the United States and could create an unfair economic environment for U.S. organic producers,” the report said. Read more at Bloomberg…
