THE FUTURE OF PERSONALIZED NUTRITION IN RETAIL
Finding New Revenue Streams in Health and Wellness
May 27, 2022
“Retailers will find lucrative new revenue streams in health and wellness.”
Forrester Prediction 2020
Using Personalized Nutrition to Boost Customer Loyalty and Your Bottom Line
Consumers have specific health goals based on an intimate knowledge of their physiology. Every consumer has a different need ⎯ an 85-year old who wants better muscle health, an injured athlete who wants to minimize recovery time, or a parent who wants food that will keep her kids alert in school. There is nothing more personal than health, and there is no one more loyal than a customer you help in achieving her financial & health goals. Join us at a one-day summit that will bring together scientists, food producers, and business people who are leading the way in personalized nutrition.

Prof. Hargadon founded the Mike & Renee Child Institute for Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management in 2006. The Institute’s programs are designed for science and engineering graduate researchers and faculty and include entrepreneurship academies as well as a year-long fellows program. The academies provide a framework for universities to build a network between their research and the investment community and combine a comprehensive and pioneering curriculum developed by Professor Hargadon with hands-on exercises that participants use to develop business opportunities and investigate the potential opportunities for commercialization around their research. The curriculum is taught by university faculty and practicing professionals: venture capitalists, angel investors, entrepreneurs, intellectual property lawyers, and others.
