“OUR SPORTS NUTRITION SOLUTIONS SHOW HUGE GROWTH POTENTIAL”

GELITA Expert Interview with Martin Walter, Global Category Manager, Healthy Aging & Sports Nutrition

When did your GELITA career begin?

I joined in early 2008 as an intern, when GELITA gave me the opportunity to write my thesis about the market potential of collagen peptides in Asia. I then worked in different business development and product management functions, where I was responsible for the market introduction of our Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®), including the award-winning FORTIGEL® and FORTIBONE®. Today, as Global Category Manager, I’m responsible for developing our Healthy Aging and Sports Nutrition portfolio. We focus on consumer needs, such as better performance in sports or improved mobility for the aging population. Our solutions are market-oriented and show huge growth potential.

“WE DEVELOP THE PRODUCTS OF TOMORROW”

GELITA Expert Interview – Natalie Leuwer, Category Manager, Nutrition and Health Ingredients

How long have you been at GELITA, and what does your role entail?

I’ve learned everything about GELITA from scratch. After joining as an apprentice in 2008, I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees with the company as a partner. I then worked in the Marketing & Communications department, handling digital communications, communications material such as videos, and market intelligence. These experiences were all excellent preparation for my role as Category Manager, where I’m now responsible for developing the product portfolio for food specialties. I ensure all new products are market-oriented and serve specific consumer requirements. The other key parts of my role are helping these new products grow and making already established products more successful.

“In these difficult times, having a reliable partner definitely helps”

We are in a world where the unexpected happens and things change fast. Following two years of COVID and lockdowns, we now have war in Europe, high inflation globally, the energy crisis, shortages of raw materials and, most likely, recession in some parts of the world. In our new Three Questions interview series, Thomas Muthny, GELITA’s Global Vice President Central Supply & Operations Planning, explains how we are tackling these supply chain challenges to ensure uninterrupted business for customers and suppliers alike.
