The Council for Responsible Nutrition has swelled its ranks with the addition of three new voting members to its roster.
Joining the Washington, DC-based trade association for the dietary supplements industry is Dow Chemical Company, the Michigan-based supplier of products to the nutritional food and supplement industry, with ingredients such as Fortefiber, a soluble dietary fibre, in its portfolio.
Also signed up to CRN is Illinois-based Lipid Nutrition, a subsidiary of Loders Croklaan, which focuses on creating scientifically-sound lipid ingredients for nutritional supplement and food companies.
The third new recruit, Tennessee-based NSA, markets innovative products designed to improve consumers' health and well-being, including its flagship brand Juice Plus+.
"As we support our mission to enhance and sustain a climate for the industry to responsibly market dietary supplements and dietary supplement ingredients, it is important that we continue to build our membership base with responsible companies," said Steve Mister, CRN president and CEO. "We are particularly pleased to announce the addition of these three well-respected companies."
* Registration is now open for CRN's 2008 annual symposium on dietary supplements, which takes place 2-5 October at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico.
Speakers at the event will include David Acheson, associate commissioner for foods under the Office of the Commissioner at the US Food and Drug Administration, and Josephine Briggs, the new director at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.br />
