SALT LAKE CITY—The United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), an international association of forward-looking companies dedicated to providing consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit and reliability, will present a two-day seminar, “Global Regulatory Update: How to Approve, Sell and Market Dietary Supplements in Latin America, the CIS region and Europe," June 18 through 19, at the Salt Lake City Marriott City Center in Salt Lake City. The conference is a joint venture with EAS Strategic Advice, a provider of market and regulatory insights to companies in the food and supplements arena with offices in Asia, Europe, Latin America and Russia.
The seminar will offer an opportunity to learn about regional and national approaches to innovative ingredients and health claims, as well as regulatory developments in the European Union, presented by a team of experts with experience in the EU, Latin American and Russian markets, as well as the Customs Union of Belarus, including Kazakhstan, Moldova and the Ukraine.
Topics that will be covered include:
- Harmonized and non-harmonized regulations: Where the opportunities are
- Strategies for getting dietary supplements to market
- Opportunities and challenges for marketing supplement ingredients
- Health claims approval in these markets
- Understanding local distribution and sales practices
- Key issues for successful product launches in each market
“These markets provide clear opportunities for North American supplement companies," said UNPA president Loren Israelsen. “But understanding the nuances of market-entry requirements, including the ongoing implementation of health claims and product registration in these various markets, can make the difference between the success and failure. This two-day conference will delve into the practical and important details inherent in doing business in these growing markets."
