Become a Member of the
United Natural Products Alliance
UNPA is an association representing many leading dietary supplement, functional food, natural products and analytical, technology and related service companies that share a commitment to provide consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit and reliability. UNPA seeks to build on a 24+-year history of industry stewardship by expanding its membership to include leaders in key market sectors, countries and product categories that are willing to contribute to the responsible growth of the natural and organic products industry.
UNPA is unique among industry trade associations in that its membership is highly collegial and collaborative within a respectful, productive business environment. This is partly because the UNPA dues structure is the same for everyone in each category, ensuring that all voices are heard equally.
We seek to create competitive market opportunities for our members while always doing what's in the best interests of the membership, the industry and the consumers they serve.
UNPA has three levels of membership. Membership benefits and deliverables are geared to best serve each group and provide unparalleled value.
Open to companies, whose principal business is the manufacture, sale or marketing of natural and organic foods, dietary ingredients, dietary supplements (or equivalents), beverages, ingredients and natural and organic personal care products.
Science & Technology Services membership
Open to analytical laboratories, analytical instrument manufacturers, and related technology providers--companies that provide a diverse range of technologies and expertise to the natural products industry.
