Golan Raz, Head of Lycored’s Global Health Division, said in the release: “For Lycored, lycopene is more than a phytonutrient – it’s our partner. As we discover more about its many benefits, we want to share our findings with consumers, and these digital resources help us do that in eye-catching new ways. We hope they will increase awareness—in the nutrition industry as well as among consumers—about the valuable role of lycopene.”

Zev Ziegler, Head of Global Brand and Marketing, Health, added: “Wellness is usually a gradual journey rather than a sudden transformation, and companies like ours have a responsibility to help consumers make small healthy steps. Providing digital wellness tools is an increasingly important way of supporting them.”
