Alessandro Hinrichsen, Latin America Business Unit Lead, Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition:

“The dietary supplements market in Brazil is predicted to reach annual sales of an estimated USD 1 billion by 2023. Now, lifestyle choices such as the decision to follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, as well as the rising popularity of gluten-free products, are also shaping the future of the industry.

“According to Euromonitor, demand for combination supplement products is also expected to rise among Brazilian consumers. Our DUOCAP® capsule-in-capsule delivery system is the ideal solution for manufacturers looking to formulate with ingredients that have previously been incompatible or have different release profiles.”
