With India’s nutraceutical sector going from strength-to-strength, more start-ups are now also emerging in the country’s functional foods space.

In this episode of Nutrition Asia, we place our attention on the functional foods scene in India, where two start-ups, Voll Sante Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals and Merhaki Foods and Nutrition tell their insights and experience gained in the past few years.
