UNPA’s Associate Member category allows companies and individuals, such as regulatory consultancies, including GMP, NDI, GRAS, labeling, formulators, technical, research, and other legal, legislative and related service providers; law firms; PR and media agencies; financial and investment advisors; academic and teaching institutions; and other professional and advisory providers to contribute to the responsible and sustainable growth and professionalism of the natural and organic products industry.
“As the natural and organic products industry matures, aligning best-in-class service providers with the manufacturing and distribution side of the business has become crucial to maintain the growth, quality and integrity of the industry,” said Loren Israelsen, UNPA president.
“Being able to fully utilize the expertise and resources offered by these seasoned professionals, who provide quality services to match the capital investments in manufacturing, science and technology we’re seeing from our existing membership, is a high priority for UNPA. This in turn provides tremendous benefit to all UNPA members. We welcome these 10 new Founding Associate Member companies and look forward to a long and productive relationship with each of them as UNPA continues to expand,” he added.
