The sports nutrition category remains one of the fastest growing areas of the food and drink industry as it moves further and further into the mainstream. The global sports nutrition market is expected to witness significant growth and reach $44 billion by 2021 (Allied Market Research).

Or will dairy proteins continue to focus in NPD?
