Keeping an Ear (and Eye) on Excipients, Kirti Vatsa – Lead Procurement Analyst, Beroe, Inc.

If you’re listening to the market, you know that gelatine is the most widely used ingredient in the production of hard- and soft-capsules, accounting for a significant portion of the global market share of common excipients. Even with the advent of non-animal based alternatives, gelatine continues a leadership position with no significant disruption in sight. Owing its success to ease and efficiency of use in capsule production and high consumer acceptance, this session will address the role of gelatine in the global world of capsule excipients – along with other non-animal based excipients. With the market making sounds of demands for “natural”, “non-animal” and “clean label” – learn how gelatine meets the overwhelming majority of market needs.
