Become a Member of the
United Natural Products Alliance

UNPA is an international trade association representing more than 100 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 25+-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 health 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.

Executive membership

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.

Associate membership

UNPA's Associate membership category extends membership to industry-related service companies and professionals. Associate Members enjoy a majority of the same benefits and services as Executive and Science & Technology Services members, along with the camaraderie and sense of distinct purpose that comes with UNPA membership.

Vetting and requirements

To be considered for membership, companies and other organizations must have demonstrated competence in quality management, adherence to accepted industry standards and practices and must have an executive commitment to safety, science and research. 

All UNPA members agree to abide by a Code of Conduct and Practice, agree to UNPA policies, as well as the terms of use for UNPA member logos.

Our admission procedure requires that companies applying for Executive membership be fully vetted and voted in by UNPA’s Executive Committee.

Science & Technology Services and Associate member candidate companies must be fully vetted and voted in by UNPA’s Membership Committee.
