“Nature’s Herbs, then a division of NaturPharma, which was acquired by Twinlab in 1989, was a founding member of the Utah Natural Products Alliance back in 1992,” said Loren Israelsen, UNPA president. “Recently, under the leadership of Twin’s CEO Naomi Whittel, the company expressed a strong desire to rejoin the ranks of UNPA and add its considerable influence to the growth and progress of the Utah supplement industry as well as the global natural products community. We are thrilled to have Naomi and her team back in the UNPA family.”
“UNPA has been a great advocate for the industry for the last 25 years, and the Twinlab family of brands is proud to once again be a part of this organization,” said Naomi Whittel, CEO of Twinlab Consolidation Corporation. “In rebuilding our company, we went back to our roots to get inspired for our vision for the future and have come full circle from our Nature's Herb brand being one of the original founding members of UNPA to now Twinlab rejoining it today.”
