Probiota Pioneers

NutraIngredients are pleased to announce our 2022 Probiota Pioneers.

As major universities look to spin-out and license key discoveries, global food and pharma businesses open up venture funds and external innovation programs and incubators to draw innovative entrepreneurs into their orbit – there are rich pickings for probiotic, prebiotic and microbiome pioneers in search of money, experience and a global platform for their ideas. But how can you win in a competitive environment?

NutraIngredients have been on the search for entrepreneurial consumer-facing, science or technology based start-ups and are pleased to announce that Beo Therapeutics, Genbioma and Lactobio have been confirmed as our 2022 Probiota Pioneers. 

We are hoping that our 2022 Pioneers will be joining us at Probiota in Copenhagen in February. Come meet them at the Pioneers Hub in the networking area at Probiota 2022.
