Published: Sunday, September 20, 2020

The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), is excited to present the virtual Sports Nutrition Congress on Oct. 21 to deliver critical information that will help companies capitalize on opportunities, address challenges and help ensure the long-term success of the perpetually growing sport and fitness food and supplement industry.

“This first-of-its-kind event will showcase industry and sports nutrition experts who will cover key sport nutrition industry issues providing the most up-to-date information, resources and practical tools and guidelines,” said AHPA Sports Nutrition Committee Chair Robert Wildman who serves as Chief Science Officer at Post Active Nutrition Brands.

"For more than a decade, AHPA’s Sports Nutrition Committee has guided companies to best practices that help businesses succeed while also promoting the responsible commerce of sports nutrition products. The committee leverages AHPA’s expertise working with regulators, industry veterans and legal experts to identify challenges and collaborate to find solutions. The strength of the committee is the collaborative approach between brands, suppliers, manufacturers, legal firms and testing facilities,” said Wildman.

“The sports nutrition segment of the industry continues to grow significantly and faces a unique set of opportunities and challenges,” said AHPA President Michael McGuffin. “AHPA established its Sports Nutrition Committee 10 years ago to provide a space for these companies to collaborate and establish best industry practices. Over the last decade the committee has helped companies provide consumers with informed access to high-quality products produced in compliance with all federal manufacturing and labeling requirements.”
