20th International Conference of FFC
at Harvard Medical School, Boston

Osato Research Institute (ORI) attended the Functional Food Center's 20th International Conference held at Harvard Medical School in Boston from September 22 to 23 and made a presentation during the "Functional Food and Neurological Diseases" session.


As Prof. Francesco Marotta was not able to attend the conference, Mrs. Amélie Moreau, Manager of Scientific Communications at ORI, presented on his behalf the results of the recent study he conducted on FPP® entitled "A 2-year follow-up study with fermented papaya preparation (FPP) modulating novel risk markers of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disease in middle-aged subjects with impending metabolic syndrome."
The Functional Food Center's 20th International Conference gave us the opportunity not only to scientifically present the antioxidant and immunological properties of FPP but also to display FPP at an exhibitor's booth. The ORI booth displayed information leaflets highlighting the properties of FPP as well as documentation on the research and studies conducted on our fermented papaya product by our own scientific team and other renowned researchers.

The exhibitor booth gave us the unique possibility to meet face to face with scientists and physicians. In one-to-one discussions, we were able to answer their many questions on FPP, and to further explain the contents and properties of our product, as well as the quality of its production process under strict international guidelines (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000 and FSSC 22000).
