AHPA's Good Agricultural Collection Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices for Botanical Material (GACP-GMP) has been endorsed by the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA).
"UNPA is confident that this comprehensive guidance and its accompanying assessment tools will help promote proper identification of and reduce the adulteration of botanical raw materials, with a goal of providing high-quality ingredients for dietary supplements and other natural health products," stated UNPA President Loren Israelsen in a letter of endorsement. "We will encourage our member companies to incorporate the AHPA GACP-GMP into their own growing, procurement and processing operations."
UNPA is the most recent association to endorse AHPA's guidance. The guidance has also been endorsed by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA).
