Nestle’s announcement that it’s expanding rapid fire into the new world of Health Sciences is evidence that it there’s a massive opportunity for food to get closer to the world of pharma and possibly provide an alternative.
Nestle obviously has a head start in this space as it’s been part of its vision for years, but given the ageing global population and the importance of health to this demographic, it makes sound business sense.
What’s interesting is how this might challenge the pharma world who’ve been successful at fighting disease with a pill for every ill.
