The final phase of integrating the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice rule for dietary supplements that are scheduled to take effect in June could revolutionize the current state of the dietary supplement manufacturing industry. However, many dietary supplement retailers are unclear as to what these changes will be and how they can potentially impact their business and their customers.
In an effort to provide clarity to retailers on this important topic, Nutricap Labs, a leading New York-based vitamin and supplement manufacturer, has partnered with Natural Foods Merchandiser magazine to present a free webinar titled “Will Your Supplement Shelves Be Ready? Understanding the Retail Impact of the June GMPs.” The webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 2:00p.m. EST / 11:00a.m. PST, will be presented by Nutricap Labs Executive Vice President of Sales and Operations, Jason Provenzano, and moderated by the Editor of Natural Foods Merchandiser magazine, Anna Soref. Provenzano has been recognized for his expertise in the areas of GMP-certification, private labeling, and contract manufacturing by numerous industry publications, making him the ideal presenter for this informational webinar.
During his presentation Provenzano will address the following areas of concern, which will then be followed by a short question and answer session:
• What the June 2010 final phase-in will mean for companies with fewer than 20 employees
• How these regulations will impact the current state of the dietary supplement manufacturing industry
• Choosing between custom manufacturing versus private labeling
• Insider tips on how to select a GMP-certified manufacturer
When asked why he chose to present on this topic, Provenzano said “Currently there is a great deal of uneasiness in the dietary supplement industry about the upcoming GMPs. The goal of this presentation is clear up any ambiguity that retailers may have about these regulations.” Provenzano added, “One of the major topics that will be covered is ‘how retailers can decipher a manufacturer that is GMP certified from one that is not. This information alone can make the difference between a business succeeding and failing.’ I am looking forward to presenting this webinar and am confident that attendees will find it to be pertinent.”
