Its database has grown organically to include comprehensive scientific, clinical, regulatory, product ingredient, supplier, manufacturer, brand and process data. Today its Integrated Data Platform is the most extensive platform within the industry, delivering responsive experiences across mobile, touch-based kiosks and desktop via unique software services.

The industry is navigating treacherous waters. UNPA is an important beacon of illumination.”
