Washington, D.C. – Following several years of Congress being closed to the public due to the global pandemic, members of the Natural Products Association (NPA) gathered in Washington, D.C. for a fly-in day to advocate on behalf of the natural products industry.
“This was a wildly successful event with great representation from our members,” said NPA Director of Government Affairs Kyle Turk.
“Over the last four years, we have faced and overcome tremendous challenges. From ensuring the dietary supplement supply chain was deemed essential during the COVID-19 pandemic, withstanding Food and Drug Administration (FDA) challenges to NMN, CBD and NAC, to protecting against mandatory product listing which would’ve put the industry one step closer to being regulated as drugs, NPA’s members have exemplified what it means to be industry leaders. The natural products trade is stronger because of their participation in events like fly-in day.”
NPA’s fly-in day brought together over one hundred prominent natural products industry stakeholders who met with nearly 90 congressional offices advocating for greater access to supplements through Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), to ensure that the FDA is protecting consumers against adulterated products and strengthening the dietary supplement supply chain through friend-shoring and reshoring.
