Latin America, the EU and the CIS region (the countries of the former Soviet Union) are some of the most dynamic markets for dietary supplements, with Latin America and the CIS continuing to see steady growth in the double digits. But successfully launching products in these markets requires a keen understanding of important regulatory requirements, harmonization efforts, trade blocks, health claims and marketing challenges.
To address these and a host of other issues relevant to establishing a successful presence in these markets, the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), an international association of forward-looking companies dedicated to providing consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit and reliability, will present a two-day seminar, “Global Regulatory Update: How to Approve, Sell and Market Dietary Supplements in Latin America, the CIS region and Europe,” June 18 and 19, at the Salt Lake City Marriott City Center in Salt Lake City.
The conference is a joint venture with EAS Strategic Advice, a global leader in providing market and regulatory insights to companies in the food and supplements arena with offices in Asia, Europe, Latin America and Russia.
The program will provide a unique opportunity to learn about regional and national approaches to innovative ingredients and health claims, as well as the latest regulatory developments in the European Union, from a team of international experts with detailed experience in the EU, Latin American, Russian, and the Customs Union of Belarus markets, including Kazakhstan, Moldova, and the Ukraine. Conference topics include:
- Harmonized and non-harmonized regulations: where opportunities are
- Strategies for getting dietary supplements to market
- Opportunities and challenges for marketing supplement ingredients
- Health claims approval in these markets
- Understanding local distribution and sales practices
- Key issues for successful product launches in each market
“These markets provide clear opportunities for North American supplement companies,” said UNPA President Loren Israelsen. “But understanding the nuances of market-entry requirements, including the ongoing implementation of health claims and product registration in these various markets, can make the difference between the success and failure. This two-day conference will delve into the practical and important details inherent in doing business in these growing markets.”
