A greater perception of food intolerancesand the influence food has on our wellbeing, along with a greater concern forthe sustainability of the entire process of food production and distribution, havecontributed to people’s awareness regarding the standards of healthy eating.
It is a factthat the consumption of healthy nutrition in Western Europe has been rising andthat Portugal presents a great potential per capita. We know that, nowadays, Portugueseconsumers are also looking for a wide range of healthy, organic and dieteticproducts, specific ingredients appropriate for people with food restrictions, aswell as supplements, vitamins and sports nutrition.
