  • Qina: Wearable Technologies & Personalised Nutrition

    New article from Qina:

    “Wearable technologies, commonly referred to as wearables, are electronic devices that can be worn on the body to measure health-related data. The most popular wearables are wristwear, followed by eyewear & headwear, footwear, neckwear, and bodywear.

    The wearable technology market has been growing and is forecasted to exceed 186.14 billion USD in revenue by 2030. Consumers aged 18-34 are the biggest population using wearables. Females, people with a college education, and household income exceeding $75000 are more likely to use wearable devices.”

  • Bring the joy of cooking into children’s lives with School Food Matters

    Are you a chef who is passionate about the future of the food industry? Have you got a few spare hours to help educate the food producers and chefs of the future? 

    SFM provide fully funded food education programmes that look to engage students with the journey of food from cooking and growing to selling and marketing their produce, touching on sustainability and the future of the food industry along the way. 
    Learning from people already engaged in the industry is incredibly inspiring for young people and we love to offer students the opportunity to experience a cooking session with a real chef and the chance to chat to them about their career path. If you think you could offer up a half day or more to visit a London school, we’d love to hear from you. 
    Please contact for further details. 

  • Qina: How AI and digitisation are impacting personalised nutrition

    “The personalised nutrition market, as other industries, has not been spared from global challenges starting from Ukraine’s turbulent war, to extreme weather and rising cost of living.
    However, this has not stopped consumers’ interest in health personalisation.

    In fact, a recent survey showed that 39% of US consumers prioritise the importance of spending on their wellbeing even more now, than they did a year before. Despite personalised nutrition becoming a crowded market, there are still plenty of untapped opportunities for food and ingredient brands looking to capture consumers´ attention as and when the dust has settled.”

    This article will focus on the current state of the personalised nutrition industry and how food, ingredient and health brands need to act smart and capitalise on this trend.
