Arun Lal, our VP of Sales and Marketing, gave a lecture to the final year students a Jhunjhunwala College of Arts, Science & Commerce in Mumbai.

In February 2018, Arun Lal, our VP of Sales and Marketing, gave a lecture to the final year students a Jhunjhunwala College of Arts, Science & Commerce in Mumbai. The subject of the lecture was “Recent Trends in Nutraceuticals and How New FSSAI Regulations Affect Them”.


Nutraceuticals is a new segment category of manufacturing for India. Before 2006, the Indian Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulated the entire spectrum from pharmaceuticals to food. As new food related products entered the market, it became too great of a challenge for one body to handle all the new regulations required.


This brought about the advent of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) to more specifically deal with food grade products. While the FSSAI was introduced in 2006, they did not release their first regulatory standards until 2016.

Nutraceuticals fall under the authority of the FSSAI and may include such categories as dietary supplements, functional foods, and other health-related food supplements. This new business segment is exploding rapidly and regulatory standards are important to protect consumers.


All the students who attended the lecture were interested in entering the field of Food Regulatory, Clinical Research Management, and Applied Nutrition and Dietetics Services and were eager to hear from an industry expert with as much experience as Mr. Lal. Hexagon Nutrition is eager to participate with colleges and universities to make sure the next generation of scientists, policy makers, and business managers know the present market conditions and how they can make the greatest impact.
