VitaFoods Europe, 2024

Waitaki exhibited once again at VitaFoods Europe in Geneva, from May 14th  -  May 16th .

This important event on the nutraceutical ingredients calendar attracted 20,000 visitors and played host to all major global manufacturers for 3 days.

Trends in functional treats, like gummies, highlighted increasing consumer preference towards convenient, fun and tasty ways to consume supplements. Collagen ingredients also remained a hot topic linking nicely with other major trends in women's health and supplement solutions that are not just anti-aging, but promote active aging.

After nearly 2 decades of exhibiting at this show it remains a crucial event for us -  building and maintaining important relationships with key customers and distributors, not only from within Europe but also further afield from USA, Canada, Japan, Korea and China.

Visitors to the Waitaki booth over the 3 days showed particular interest for our PernaTec Greenshell Mussel products in both powder and oil form for human and pet use, along with PhenActiv kiwifruit powder and CollaMex collagen chondroitin complex.

Toitu Certification 2024 - 2027

Waitaki has been an early and committed adopter of carbon emission reduction programmes, with continuous participation in the Toitu (previously known as CEMARS) scheme for 17 years.

Managing our environmental footprint is critical to the success of our business and this independently audited local programme reviews business practices and issues certification every 3 years.

Food production is a major impactor on water and greenhouse gas emissions so we are continuously and actively working to reduce our footprint and identify opportunities for further improvement now and into the future.
