It recently secured a distribution deal with Woolworths supermarkets, which saw its organic hemp seed oil stocked in all 948 stores across Australia as of January 2023.

Aside from the new launch, the company is also planning to build a data-driven capability to gain insights into customers’ goals, behaviours and profiles.

For gut and brain: Nissin launches FFCs containing lactic acid bacteria for the first time

Cup noodle maker Nissin Foods Group has launched Foods with Function Claims (FFCs) containing lactic acid bacteria for the first time.
