In this round-table discussion, leading figures in the global probiotics industry examine the state of play in the category, and what we should expect in the coming years.

Our speakers are: Ioannis Misopoulos, director general of the International Probiotics Association (IPA); George Paraskevakos, business development director at Canadian probiotics supplier Harmonium International; and Dr Jean-Michel Pommet, managing director of probiotics technology transfer and consultancy firm Gate2Tech.

Topics covered include the class action lawsuit faced by Dannon in the US for the health claims on its probiotic yogurts, as well as Kraft’s disappointment with its probiotic cheese product.

We also discuss emerging areas to watch out for, and the lack of consistent global standards for the category.
