UNPA welcomes two new executive members
Zhucheng Haotian Pharma Co. Ltd and Essential Formulas have joined the United Natural Products Alliance as executive members, bringing UNPA’s membership to 83 companies from around the world.

“Zhucheng is the world leader in the manufacturing and distribution of inositol and skullcap (​Scutellaria baicalensis) and is one of the top three stevia producers in the world,”​ said Loren Israelsen, UNPA president. “The company brings state-of-the-art manufacturing and category leadership in a number of product categories that are sold in more than 60 countries, and we warmly welcome Zhucheng to our growing roster of best-in-class Executive Members.”

“The addition of Essential Formulas to UNPA brings a leading health food retail brand and market leadership in the probiotic category, which is so important to the dietary supplement industry,”​ added Israelsen. “The Dr. Ohhira line of probiotics is one of the best in the world, and we welcome the knowledge and expertise Michael Schoor and his company bring to UNPA in this respect. I would also note that few companies possess the level of sophistication on the political and regulatory front, which we also warmly welcome.”

William Schoor, executive vice president of Essential Formulas, said: “The ability to speak with a unified voice is very important if the public and the nation's regulators are to fully and completely understand the intricacies of the dietary supplement industry. UNPA has been leading the charge on behalf of our industry for decades, and we are very appreciative of the opportunity to lend our experiences and know how to this effort."
