By all accounts, the inaugural, virtual AHPA Sports Nutrition Congress hit it out of the ballpark!
With 225+ registrants, 20+ speakers, and 13 sponsors, the full-day event moved at a rapid pace, with informational nuggets and key takeaways from every session. Speakers from competing companies came together to share their insights, expertise and stories to help build a better industry. Registrants were the winners.

FDA issued a proposed rule on September 23, 2020 entitled “Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods”. The proposed rule would establish additional traceability recordkeeping requirements beyond what is already in existing regulations for foods on a newly published “Food Traceability List.” The category of “Herbs (fresh)” is included on the Food Traceability List and provides examples of parsley, cilantro and basil. Food products containing ingredients from the list would be subject to the same traceability requirements up to the point of retail.
