The growing consumer knowledge about personal health and diet-related effects has further contributed to this ongoing trend, which has greatly benefitted the nutraceuticals industry in the country.

Functional food and beverages have received wide acceptance in the UK over the years with a growing awareness about their potential benefits. People have been observed to seek food products enriched with added vitamins, minerals and other health-oriented ingredients. The drive towards maintaining a healthy dietary regime in the country has also been receiving impetus by an escalating percentage of the aged population.

This category of nutraceuticals has been hard-hit by the recessionary environment prevailing in the European region over the years. However, the dietary supplement market still continues to thrive owing to a sustained demand from the upper class populace that considers nutritional supplements as an integral part of their dietary regime.

The growing awareness of diet, health and well-being amongst the masses is anticipated to further the access to a safer and more varied diet, which would include nutraceuticals products.
