UNPA \ UNPA endorses AHPA's Good Agricultural and Collection Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices for Botanical Material
UNPA has officially endorsed the Good Agricultural and Collection Practices and GMPs for Botanical Material that was recently released by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA). The document and accompanying assessment tools are designed to assist growers, processors and others promote proper identification of and reduce the adulteration of botanical raw materials, with a goal of providing high-quality ingredients for dietary supplements.
Some of you may remember that the genesis of this document was a botanical raw materials discussion group meeting held prior to UNPA’s February 2016 Raw Materials Summit in Salt Lake City, based on work AHPA had done previously.
UNPA strongly encourages all of its members to become familiar with the document and assessment tools (see link below) and incorporate them into their own growing, procurement and processing operations.
With warm regards,
