The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) has announced further expansion in its membership as Synergy Tastes, Active Nutrition International, Nutritional Products International, the International Council on Amino Acid Science (ICAAS) and TdeltaS all sign up.
Synergy Tastes joins as a manufacturer and supplier of flavourings, extracts and essences and is based in the UK together with TdeltaS, a biotech company that deals with with nutraceuticals. Active Nutrition International, on the other hand, is based in Germany and is known for, among other things, its PowerBar brand.
Highlighting ESSNA’s diversity, Nutritional Products International joins the association as a sales and management company that specialises in marketing products in the United States. ICAAS, meanwhile, is a not for profit organisation established in Japan that explores the science around the use of amino acids. ESNA says that this latest expansion highlights how it is expanding its range of membership and the reach of its members from across the EU and beyond.
ESSNA chair, Dr Adam Carey, said: “We’re delighted to welcome all these hugely respected organisations to our membership and very much look forward to working alongside them in future. This solid growth of ESSNA’s membership perfectly reflects our increasing efforts to engage with EU regulators to make sure consumers are always protected and also coincides with our recently launched initiative to educate consumers on how to responsibly use sports nutrition products. We believe these new members will add great value to ESSNA’s future activities in this regard.”
