FoodAR – Advanced Research was founded in May 2018 based on the merger of two historical companies in the Italian nutritional supplements market: Dmf Dietetic Metabolic Food and Difass International. The company’s mission is to improve the quality of life of patients suffering from malnutrition, neurodegenerative disorders and frailty due to pharmaceutical therapy or a specific condition. The company develops, promotes and distributes Food for Special Medical Purposes (AFMS*) through pharmaceutical wholesalers, pharmacies, specialised shops, hospitals and homes for the elderly.
In recent decades, the founding companies have developed multiple formulas and registered nutritional patents, based on both applied research and clinical studies. FoodAR – Advanced Research has established long-term cooperation with opinion leaders and influencers, primary research institutes and hospitals such as Gaslini in Genoa, Bambin Gesù in Rome, San Raffaele in Milan, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Regione Lombardia and Fondazione Filarete. The unique and valuable network built up over time has enabled FoodAR to position itself as a reference point in the AFMS sector.
