What does “Innovation” means?
It means finding new paths, new unexplored ways, new findings that lead to a general improvement. Innovation is also implanting and launching new, enhanced and better products. In the dietary supplements and wellness industry means also finding new way of taking and assuming nutraceuticals, which provide a beneficial effects to consumers or which are mor practical or simply better and tastier. In fact we have been used to think that nutraceuticals ate boring pills with no taste, similar to drugs or pharmaceuticals.
We cannot be more wrong: food supplements have more in common with food that one might think (think about the name nutrition) and not only are a wellness tools but also can be an indulgent moment (and for this taste is quite important!)
OFI has been dealing with innovation from a very long time, studying and developing every day new innovative formulation, new customer friendly products for a continuous improvement in people wellness and life styles. OFI has been a pioneer when launched the liquid stick pack as food supplements. A pocket format, ready to use, ready to drink, practical, convenient and especially so tasty!
