The consortium takes an integrated approach that involves partners across the value chain working closely together to arrive at tailored, scientifically grounded marketable solutions.

Over the coming years the consortium aims to place in the hands of its members the technology, knowledge and insights that can guide the development of ground-breaking, personalized products and services. Newtrition is keen to collaborate in projects that advance research on personalized nutrition and aims to bring science-driven solutions to the commercial markets.
