History and Origins of MedWell

The Mediterranean, with its strategic geographical location, has always been a key meeting point for peoples, cultures and trade. But beyond that, it is a region that boasts a unique biodiversity, with a wide range of species and ecosystems that make it a natural gem. This combination of cultural and natural richness has given rise to traditions and knowledge that have been passed down from generation to generation. Alsa Lab, which has always been attentive to the potential offered by this part of the world, wanted to concretize its vision focused on progress through an initiative that could combine Mediterranean tradition with the innovations of the modern world.
The award not only celebrates excellence in the field of nutraceuticals, but also serves as a bridge between deep academic research and the dynamic needs of today’s market.
“MedWell – Mediterranean Wellbeing” is not only a recognition for young talents and their innovative research: it is a commitment by Alsa Lab and its partners to enhance and promote a vision of well-being that draws from the history and nature of the Mediterranean, projecting towards the challenges and opportunities of the future.

Alsa Lab Società Benefit in the Service of Youth, Territory and the Environment

Alsa Lab, which became a Benefit Corporationin 2021, has a deep vocation in its DNA: the protection and enhancement of young talent, the land and the environment. This identity, which combines tradition with a forward-looking vision, has enabled the company to build a solid reputation based on unwavering values and a well-defined mission: not only to produce, but also to educate, inform and inspire. Collaboration with academic institutions, particularly academia, is a concrete commitment for Alsa Lab to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
The goal is to provide tangible support for education, research and innovation, always with an eye toward the younger generation and their potential. But Alsa Lab’s vision goes beyond national borders: the company aspires to spread MedWell’s mission throughout the Mediterranean basin, reflecting its ongoing commitment to safeguarding young talent and enhancing local resources.

And speaking of history, as the University of Naples Federico II is about to experience its 800th birthday in the best way possible, the MedWell Prize is meant to be another example of cultural integration between the prestigious Athenaeum and the business world.
