Using Personalized Nutrition to Boost Customer Loyalty and Your Bottom Line
There is nothing more personal than health, and there is no one more loyal than a customer you help in achieving her financial & health goals.
Consumers have specific health goals based on an intimate knowledge of their physiology. Every consumer has a different need ⎯ an 85-year old who wants better muscle health, an injured athlete who wants to minimize recovery time, or a parent who wants food that will keep her kids alert in school.
At this intimate summit of select innovative thought leaders, you will:
- Learn more about the power of personalization and how it will change your business,
- Answer key questions about the latest research in the gut biome and different metabolic types,
- Be part of the translation of current research into brandable attributes,
- Get exposed to the opportunities to create synergies between various scientific work, and
- Have a chance to network with a diverse group of thought leaders in the Personalized Nutrition space.
Join us on May 27, 2020 to learn and collaborate with the country's foremost nutrition scientists, food producers, and business people who are leading the way in personalized nutrition.
