The U.S.-China Health Products Association received an Export Appreciation Certificate from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Commercial Service Health Team during this year’s Natural Products Expo West.
The award was presented to the association’s executive director Jeff Crowther for the association's work in successfully promoting the export of U.S. products from Jarrow Formulas, All American Pharmaceutical, Pacific Health Labs, Forward Foods LLC and Chef Jays. The association accomplished this by working closely with its retail member, World Health Store, which is the first foreign owned and managed health food store in China. The award was also presented for the association’s ongoing market intelligence reports to the U.S. Department of Commerce to ensure government-to-government dialog continues towards the further opening and overall development of China’s dietary supplement and natural health product industry.
U.S.–China Health Products Association is the only U.S based non-profit association working in China. The association was established by Crowther and its founding members Jarrow Formulas and NSF International. Its missions are to work toward a more open regulatory environment in China, to increase dietary supplement and other natural health product exports to China as well as work on creating a safer more transparent supply chain through its work with NSF International.
