Event description
Together with our distinguished guests, we will discuss the role of food supplements in promoting health and preventing diseases in Europe.

About this Event

The event is organised by the European Federation of Associations of Health Product Manufacturers (EHPM), MEP Simona Bonafè (S&D, Italy) and MEP Pascal Arimont (EPP, Belgium).

It will take place on the 18th of February from 18:30 to 20:00 at the European Parliament in Brussels. It features two panel discussions, namely:

  • Health promotion and disease prevention: the role of food supplements;
  • Food supplements and the new EU political term: opportunities and challenges.

An interactive discussion with both policymakers and stakeholders will follow.

Overwhelming evidence now supports the beneficial effects of food supplements on health. Within a balanced and healthy diet, the intake of food supplements contributes to keeping people healthy and containing healthcare costs. Additionally, SMEs play a key role in the European food supplement ecosystem, bringing value to the economy and society, as well as to the EU’s ability to drive innovation in the sector.

As a new political term is starting at the EU level, it becomes key to discuss the opportunities and the challenges that the food supplement sector is facing. Therefore, during the event, EHPM will introduce its Manifesto outlining the industry's priorities for the next five years.
