Delegates from the International Probiotics Association and the Brazilian regulatory authorities ANVISA will discuss the science and regulatory landscape for probiotics at an upcoming workshop.

George Paraskevakos, IPA’s Executive Director, told NutraIngredients-USA that this is the first ever probiotic workshop between IPA and ANVISA.

“We have seen great interest for this workshop but more importantly a very enthusiastic response to this initiative,” ​he said. “With the market growing at the rate it is in Brazil and the potential segue into other Latin American markets, it is imperative that industry, regulations and the science are aligned.

“IPA is hopeful this workshop with its line-up of expert speakers will achieve this and highlight examples of regulatory frameworks that are currently being used successfully based on scientific principles, on industry’s know how but most importantly, on consumer needs as well.”

According to ANVISA, the workshop is an opportunity for probiotic stakeholders, including industry, academia, and regulators to hear about regulatory frameworks around the world that are currently being used successfully based on scientific principles, industry’s know-how, and consumer needs.

Industry presentations will be delivered by IPA’s Paraskevakos, Arthur Ouwehand (R&D Group manager at  DuPont Nutrition & Health), and Solange Henoud (Regulatory Affairs Manager, Americas for Lallemand Health Solutions).
