International Probiotics Association

The International Probiotics Association (IPA) is an international organization with members equally divided between industry and academia and its goal is to provide a unique forum for the exchange of research and the latest breakthroughs in probiotic technology and new product development. IPA holds NGO status before Codex Alimentarius and is the global voice of probiotics as the majority of the world’s industrial producers are members.

Additionally, IPA will work with government bodies and industry to assist in establishing scientific standards for probiotic supplements, probiotic pharmaceutical products and functional foods. IPA will educate consumers on the proven health benefits of probiotics for humans and animals by attending trade shows, health tours/walks and other media functions. IPA promises to always put forth timely, unbiased information to every interested party, and share the documented benefits of probiotics  to its international forum of members.
