Gstaad 2023 – Enhanced Nutrition in a Digital Age

Gstaad 2023 is now complete and we begin to plan for Gstaad 2024. Bengt and the Biogredia Team would like to thank all sponsors, speakers and attendees who have made Gstaad 2023 (the 8th Biogredia Summit) a tremendous success. We recognise the distance people have travelled to attend this event and everyone’s individual contribution.

Feedback has been universally positive and it is great to know that the efforts that are put in to make the event a success are recognised by those attending. Biogredia would also like to make special thanks to Carole and the team at Le Grand Chalet for their superb overall service, which undoubtedly contributed to the success of our Summit.

As photographs and videos are released, we will add them to this section, so please come back and see what has been added.

The 27th was it is the turn of our suppliers. In this session we heard about the innovations that our suppliers were bringing to our industry sector. Some of the presenters are featured above. In total we heard from seven presenters who updated attendees on products from their portfolios and which are available from Biogredia. We also heard about technical advances in production, new products and new ways in which messaging of these new developments are being marketed.

Topics presented included:

  • New developments with Hytolive
  • How Sensoril (Ashwaganda) and Wellmune have developed into a new blended alternative
  • Ingredient Solutions for the Digitally Native Consumer
  • Technology addicts, how it affects sexual health and libido
  • New products in the PLT Health portfolio
  • The future of vitamin K2 and Quatrefolic
  • A scientifically backed skin AND joint collagen product

The entire event was filmed, and we intend to make some content available over the coming weeks once the edits are completed. Feedback from delegates has been overwhelmingly positive, and work has already started to make Gstaad 2024 even better than its predecessors.

Today’s Conference Chair is Nick Morgan. Nick is Director of Sports Integrated and is additionally speaker at the Conference. He is a leading voice on the sports and active nutrition category and in particular its evolution and the role of innovation. Nick has previously worked with elite athletes as an Exercise Physiologist, and managed applied nutrition research programs at GSK.

Nutrition Branding strategy

Added to these, our keynote speaker Lucy Goff is telling the story behind the rise of LYMA Life. Following a health episode which had a major personal impact, Lucy left her career in journalism and public elations to set out to change people’s lives with the creation of The LYMA Supplement. LYMA’s natural engineering approach applies the latest scientific and technological breakthroughs to the genius of nature to make products that are proven to work.

The day concluded with social activities (a horse sleigh ride or curling) and concluded with a traditional Swiss meal in the neighbouring town of Saanen.

As our delegates start to arrive, Bengt and the team are making final preparations for the welcome reception and dinner at The Grand Chalet, this evening.

We asked UK Sales Director Nic White for his thoughts on this event, which is now in its 8th year. Nic told us,

UK Sales Director Nic White

“They say time flies when you’re having fun, which when thinking about our annual summit in Gstaad, it’s most certainly true – and not just in the regard that the 3 days always feels like it goes way too quickly, but also the fact that this is our 8th annual conference – where did those years go?! Each conference supersedes the last, and testament to this is those who return year after year – for many, this has become a ‘must attend’ event.”

Nic continued “Our credo is that business should be fun, and that’s what we aim to provide in Gstaad – a memorable event to attend, not just for our customers, but our supply partners too. With the Swiss Alps as a backdrop, Gstaad has so much to offer – from the stunning scenery, to the opulent hotels and amazing food & wine – the environment is conducive to networking, sharing ideas, learning, and so much more besides.”

To keep you up to date, we will let you know the key activities and feedback from each day in a special daily newsletter.
