The conclusion of the Functional Food 2000 conference, in The Hague, was that this is an exiting time for the European functional foods industry. The conference focused on the commercial, regulatory, strategic, investment and consumer issues likely to affect the European functional foods market in the future. A forum was provided to discuss whether functional foods were likely to make a difference to overall health, and what ingredients would offer the most potential.

This report covers sectors where the children make decisions, such as confectionary and soft drinks, together with areas where the parents make the purchase but the children are the major consumers, for example, cereals or biscuits. All the major brands across Europe are discussed in this 250-page report available from Leatherhead Food RA at a cost of [pound]425.
