Russian Dietary Supplement Industry: An Industry View of the Strategic Objectives for Development
17 June 2022
09:45—11:15
According to the WHO, almost a third of the world’s population lacks sufficient essential minerals. Roughly one billion people do not get enough vitamin D. Some 20 million children are born with health problems due to a lack of iodine in their mother’s diet. The Institute of Nutrition says that this insufficient intake of vitamins and minerals occurs year-round and needs to be corrected. In this situation, taking dietary supplements is the most affordable and logical way to solve the problem of nutritional deficiencies. Dietary supplements are regularly taken by 90% of the population in Japan, 45–80% in the United States, 59% in Denmark, 54% in South Korea, and 43% in Germany. In Russia, this figure does not even reach 20%. The development of public educational programmes as an integral part of the national Demography project in matters concerning nutritional support and the prevention of dietary dependent diseases could become a task for public-private partnerships to optimize healthcare costs. To what degree is the use of vitamins and dietary supplements a crucial tool to ensuring active longevity in an aging population? How important is it to draft a strategy for the development of the dietary supplement industry as a key state sector related to ensuring the health and active longevity of society, and what potential do these strategies have? What issues are most relevant today in terms of import substitution in the dietary supplement industry?
