To track probiotic ecommerce, this is the best tool we’ve tried. At the end of the day, it covers a lot of countries and products without losing accuracy. We always keep an eye on Lumina for anticipating the trends in probiotics. We have a very broad pipeline of development and always need to prioritise – we rely on these trend reports to sometimes decide on what we develop first.
