Description “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.). Food is a most important factor in the prevention of disease. It is also an important complement to medicine, to cure disease. Now convergence is coming to the healthcare market!

Is there an indispensable important missing link between food and medicine as of yet? If such a missing link is Nutraceuticals, what about the market potential? Why would Nutraceuticals be indispensable?

October 2011 the following could be read in Time Magazine: ”World renowned economists predict in the next ten years, the Nutraceutical Industry will expand to over One Trillion Dollars ; meaning it`s going to be the largest growing industry in the next decades” and furthermore: ”The growing Nutraceutical Business will rise to, and even surpass, the existing pharma-business”.

– Companies from food production, aquaculture, agriculture, biotech and nutraceuticals will probably all turn their focus to this new booming health market

How can Norway’s food industry enter the worlds new booming one trillion dollar health market?
