The Past Is Prologue for Nutraceuticals 3 Trends to Watch in 2021 Trend Brief Let's just say what we're all thinking: 2020 was rough. It threw every element of our lives into disarray. We suddenly had to become experts at navigating a new way of working, schooling and socializing. It was disruptive and it was challenging, but it was also transformative. And while the past 12 months might have felt like 12 years, it's time to look forward to what the future holds. If 2020 was the year of disruption, 2021 will be the year of mastering change. In the nutraceutical industry, the more things change the more they stay the same. The industry went into 2020 with bright hopes about a regulatory pathway for cannabidiol (CBD) in supplements, an emphasis on sustainability, and the possibility of an update to the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was a little busy during 2020, the CBD and DSHEA questions are still on the table in 2021. And while sustainability remains important, nutraceutical companies had their hands full dealing with supply chain disruption from the pandemic.
