How to create business with healthy aging?
By 2050 there will be two billion people aged 60 or older, and many will be willing to invest in healthy food products that help them stay active, energetic, alert and enjoy the good things in life, such as the pleasure of food. They need functional foods designed to meet the specific needs of the body as it ages, foods with more protein and vitamins.
