The Roquette Foundation for Health has announced that it is a partner of the “Microbiota” exhibition, being held at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris.
The Roquette Foundation for Health was created by Roquette, a global leader in plant-based ingredients and a pioneer of new vegetal proteins. the Foundation has teamed up with cultural organisation, Universcience, to support the exhibition, and fits with the Foundation’s mission of supporting innovative and educative programs in the areas of food and nutrition..
Anne Lambin, head of the Roquette Foundation for Health, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie with this exhibition, which is opening in Paris first, before being transferred to other venues outside of France. Visitors will have fun while learning all about the inner workings and secrets of our microbiota. The intestinal microbiota we have in our gut from birth plays a critical role in keeping us healthy. A thriving microbiota is a sign of a flourishing organism from a physiological, psychological and behavioral point of view. The digestive system and dietary habits are covered to give visitors a better understanding of their body. This partnership fits perfectly with the Foundation’s and the Roquette Group’s objectives of improving the well-being and health of millions of people around the world.”
Edouard Roquette, chairman of the Roquette Foundation, added: “Since it was created a year ago, the Roquette Foundation for Health has been actively involved in programs to improve health through food and nutrition. The Roquette Group is proud of the work that our Foundation and the organisations it supports are doing in the area of Lille, across France and around the world. By establishing the Foundation, the Roquette Group has given a new dimension to its social commitments, a dimension that resonates well with our employees and all our partners.”
The Microbiota exhibition at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris is open until August 4, 2019. It is inspired by Giulia and Jill Enders’ bestseller “The discreet charm of the intestine” (published in France at Actes Sud) and was conceived in partnership with the researchers of INRA (National Institute of agronomic research) .
