4 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT:

Retail Standards for Dietary Supplements

 

"When retailers each develop their own standards that are duplicative or inconsistent, or don’t appreciate the complexity of supplement manufacturing, they increase costs for manufacturers that may be passed on to consumers. 

Retailers must work with responsible supplement industry leaders to develop harmonized certification standards that best serve consumers, protecting access to a wide range of safe, high-quality supplements," CRN's Associate General Counsel and Vice President Megan Olsen in this short video

Olsen emphasizes that retailers must work with responsible supplement industry leaders to develop harmonized certification standards that best serve consumers, protecting access to a wide range of safe, high-quality supplements.

Harmonizing retailer-imposed standards for supplements is one of CRN's 10 priority initiatives for 2021.


“It’s critical that retailers and manufacturers come to the same table to make quality and safety the base price of entry into the retail supplement marketplace.”
