Moo-ving forward: Nuchev launches its first bovine product targeting school-going children and adults​  

Australian infant goat milk formula specialist Nuchev is launching its first bovine product for older children and adults as it looks to introduce a series of products aimed at enhancing digestion and immunity over the next 12 months.

The move stems from the growing demand for products focusing on immunity and digestion found through extensive consumer research it has undertaken in Australia and China.

“Goat and bovine [milk] are vehicles. Based on what we have observed, China is relatively advanced in illness prevention. So, we are very interested in giving consumers that immunity boost,”​ Scott Koetsier, Nuchev’s Head of Sales & Business Development told NutraIngredients Asia.

Indian anti-hangover first mover Morning Fresh eyes growth opportunities for RTD functional beverages​  

India-based Morning Fresh is actively expanding its portfolio across categories and formats to fulfil rising demand for functional products, particularly ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages.

Since its debut in 2015, the firm noticed that consumer demand for anti-hangover products and competition in the market have evolved significantly, and there is room to innovate using herbs and spices.

“There is a lot of room for innovation, especially in India where we have a huge body of natural ingredients such as herbs and spices that we can leverage to develop new products. There are also myriad possibilities in terms of format, including gummies and strips. We are working on product extensions and building a range of ‘wellness beverages,” ​brand founder Mitali Tandon told us.
