DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences today announced its intent to enter into a strategic collaboration with BY-HEALTH, a leading consumer health care company in China.

The strategic collaboration would focus generally on research and development of probiotic dietary supplements with "new functions, new ingredients and new technologies," including joint research on intestinal microecology and the development of new probiotic dietary supplements and applications for use.

BY-HEALTH acquired Life-Space Group, one of the leading branded probiotic enterprises in Australia, producing and marketing probiotic products for all life stages.

Specifically, its HOWARU probiotics were recognised with a series of outstanding innovation awards from various industry organizations.
