BLL Federation of Food Law and Food Science (Bund für Lebensmittelrecht und Lebensmittelkunde - BLL) AK NEM represents the food supplements sector in Germany, its membership comprising the leading manufacturers and distributors of food supplements in Germany as well as their raw material suppliers and specialized laboratories, consultants and lawyers.
Boots UK is the leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer in the UK, with close to 2,500 Boots UK stores and around 60,000 employees. Boots UK’s purpose is to help customers look and feel better than they ever thought possible.
“We are delighted that BLL and Boots UK have joined Food Supplements Europe so early in its development,” said Ingrid Atteryd, Chair of Food Supplements Europe. “BLL’s approach is in line with ours of engaging in discussion with the political and scientific bodies. Boots UK brings unique experience of manufacturing, distribution and retail.”
“Food Supplements Europe is working to build an EU regulatory system that takes into account the specificities of food supplements and to provide solutions on regulatory, scientific, and technical matters based on knowledge, dialogue and transparency,” she continued. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with these new members of the association.”
