Building up associations

IADSA has been involved in establishing more than 15 of its associations over the past decade. We work with companies and authorities to build national associations in countries where one does not exist.

For the past decade IADSA has been a trusted source of information about regulatory and scientific developments in the world and the technical requirements of food supplement manufacture.

Originally created as a body to bring together the food supplement sector in Codex Alimentarius discussions, IADSA has expanded its operations considerably. The organisation now has:

  • Regional and national regulatory programs in many parts of the world where food supplement regulation is being harmonised or modified.

  • Scientific program to address the most relevant and in many cases most challenging issues for policy makers.

  • A technical program focused on continuing to build quality in manufacturing of supplements.
