Albion Human Nutrition Division—Saint Clair Shores, Michigan: The UNPA is an association of dietary supplement and functional food companies that shares a commitment to provide consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit and reliability. Limited to 40 full members, new members must be fully vetted and voted in by existing members. Albion is grateful to have been accepted into the UNPA.
With membership in the UNPA spanning the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia it has world-wide influence in regulatory issues. In particular here in the US, it was instrumental in forming a relationship with Senators, Congressmen and the FDA to ultimately produce the house bill known as DSHEA. The UNPA continues to help shape laws and regulations such as GMP regulations, adverse event reporting systems, analytical method development, control of steroids masquerading as supplements and international quality management protocols.
As the UNPA is an active and vital trade association aligned with our human nutrition division, it will aid Albion in staying in touch with vital issues and trends in the supplement industry, allowing Albion to better serve our customers and partners. www.AlbionMinerals.com
