UNPA agrees to support, promote animal supplements and health products

With National Animal Supplement Council, UNPA will help develop Chinese market for animal health brands.

The United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) and the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) have reached an agreement to advance in animals the beneficial use of nutritional dietary supplements and medications, both nationally and internationally.

Through a memorandum of understanding, the two organizations will cooperate to advance the state of animal health products; supplements and food regulation; safety and quality standards; consumer use and confidence of such products; and the establishment of appropriate compliance requirements.

Additionally, UNPA and NASC plan to further develop the Chinese marketplace for animal health products and supplements.

“We see the companion animal health products category as a vital and growing sector of the natural products industry,” Loren Israelsen, UNPA president, said in a released statement. “Our partnership can go a long way toward the responsible and sustainable growth of the animal health products and supplements market, backed with solid science and standards for quality. In addition, UNPA will act as the pipeline for NASC member companies to enter the Chinese market.” The UNPA is an international trade association of natural-health-product companies committed to providing superior quality, benefit, reliability and sustainability.

Bill Bookout, the president of NASC, also expressed his enthusiasm in the statement. “We could not be more excited about the collaborative relationship with UNPA…Ultimately, our organizations are dedicated to helping our members maximize the opportunities to make a difference in the lives of both people and animals, while always looking toward the global marketplace. With new and dynamic developments in China, we think UNPA is a great partner to leverage our core strengths, which holds great promise for both organizations.” The National Animal Supplement Council is a nonprofit industry group dedicated to protecting and enhancing the health of companion animals and horses throughout the United States.
