VIRUN® & Amway Open Innovation Push for More Creativity and Technology; Introducing Unknown Thoughts in Industry

Feb 11 2014, 7:18am CST | by

Virun, and Amway Open Innovation, team-up to express their interest and efforts to foster creativity, invention, and innovation with foods, beverages and supplements. New product development is more difficult today than ever before; increased regulations, competition, market saturation and consumer perception make it difficult to introduce new products that, not only stand-out, but are what consumers will purchase and re-purchase.

Walnut, CA, February 11, 2014 --(PR.com)-- VIRUN and Amway Open Innovation will showcase their initiatives, processes and synergies with product examples in supporting the evolution of a novel concept to finished product.

Webinar, Unknown Thoughts …How to Reduce Competition on the Shelf

February 13th, 11:30 am Eastern Standard, Virun and Amway Open Innovation will discuss their take on new innovative food, beverage and supplement products entering the market. The webinar, titled, “Unknown-thoughts… How to reduce competition on the shelf” will elaborate the difficulty in releasing new products to market. Virun’s CEO, Dr. Philip Bromley, will share his experience working with industry and new product brands, the difficulty in competing on the shelf and the need for innovation in order to differentiate form others. Also contributing, Amway’s Open Innovation Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Deepa Shenoy will introduce and discuss how innovation as an open-forum is aspired – companies are looking for innovative concepts and Deepa will break-down Amway’s discovery process that welcomes innovation. Source-Omega’s CEO, Dr. Scott Doughman will join as well and give specific examples of innovation; from Source-Omega’s exclusive water extraction and other novel methods of creating niche markets where competition is reduced. Virun, Amway and Source-Omega will not only explore unknown-thoughts that relate to innovation, but, lend specific examples.

Has the word, “Innovation” lost its meaning?

From “throat-coating pectin” to Coconut Water with B Vitamins; it seems new food, beverage and supplement products entering the market are creating a sense of redundancy on the shelf. Food, beverage and dietary supplement companies are willing to invest in brands and markets but not in research and development as seen in pharma and biotech sectors. Consumers are knowledgeable and well-read so developing new and functional products today needs to match consumer expectations and be progressive. New products from smaller start-ups have very little space on the shelf to compete, let alone be visible. Also, co-packers and manufacturers typically give cost breaks with huge volumes, so to compete on price can be difficult in the beginning. Top-selling market categories of products are so saturated and, therefore, many times compete solely based on price. To compete in this environment, a new product must be truly different than others on the market. Innovation is a word that has transitioned from describing new and exciting things to a word used to describe me – to new products. Virun and Amway are examples of innovative companies that are both researching new and exciting technologies but also looking at industry partners for the same. From formulation to new delivery technologies, 2014 will be the year innovation stands-out and is more welcomed than ever before.
