Natural Products INSIDER Sept/Oct 2017

INSIDER’s September/October 2017 print issue covered a range of topics important to marketers, manufacturers and formulators of health and nutrition products. These articles focused on the application of science-based ingredients that drive innovative and compliant products for the global consumer market. As official media for SupplySide West, the world's largest trade show of professionals in the health and nutrition marketplace, INSIDER’s September/October 2017 issue previewed the September event. Throughout the magazine, INSIDER noted the educational offerings at SupplySide West that align with the content of the articles. In addition, the September/October print issue had a SupplySide West Preview section (starting on page 100) that teased the upcoming live content. In this section, speakers wrote one-page articles addressing the topic they will cover at the live event, and INSIDER include callouts with information on where the event is and how to register, including a QR code to online registration.
