A recent study by Columbia University and the French National Institute suggests that six out of 10 people share articles that they have not read on Twitter.

The BÉNÉFIQ team continues to regularly share articles on our social media accounts, and rest assured, we do read them!

Why share content about ingredients and health foods on social media?

We believe that sharing information on the Web is an opportunity to advance knowledge in our field. Events and meetings, such as BÉNÉFIQ are crucial, but the Web creates links between new collaborators to discover innovations and disperse recent findings on potential ingredients and health foods.

So, while awaiting the in-person meetings which will take place via our B2B platform during BÉNÉFIQ 2016, you can join our LinkedIn group or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
