The webinar was focused on the uncertainty caused by the current regulatory situation in Europe for probiotic foods and food supplements, and on how policy makers can design coherent policies to address the triple challenge of better consumer information, a competitive and innovative European industry and legal certainty for this category of ingredients. 

After the introduction of IPA Europe President Esben Laulund, legal expert Katia Merten-Lentz presented the current situation and potential scenarios. The Q&A was moderated by Karen Vokes, Chair of the IPA Europe Regulatory Committee.
