Focused Exchange on Oral Care

The Healthy Bite, launched in 2019, is the first-ever venue enabling a focused exchange on the newest findings in functional and active ingredients for oral care formulations. The Healthy Bite is bringing together world-leading experts in the oral care industry. Insights, discoveries, and new solutions will be on display to support cutting-edge innovations paired with economic advantages. The forum on oral care ingredients will again take place online on June 21 and 22, 2022 – featuring several world-renowned companies and experts as presenters.
The Healthy Bite 2020 could unfortunately not take place as a in-person event, due to COVID-19. Instead Omya hosted a webinar in coorporation with Mintel, the world’s leading market intelligence agency, offering unique access to insights and the latest developments in the Oral Care market, focusing on trends and innovation within the industry.

About 50 participants from leading global companies, universities and institutes took part in lectures and a panel discussion, aiming on essential aspects for the successful formulation, testing and marketing of oral care products. The feedback on this initial conference was hugely positive, so much that Omya will continue hosting Healthy Bite events.
