EHPM is the leading European trade association representing the food supplements sector.
With our Members, National Associations from 14 European Countries, Companies, Service Providers, we unite, represent, inspire & support over 1,600 health-product manufacturers at the European and global level.
We support the food supplements sector with:
- Collaborative platforms: to develop sector-wide approaches to guarantee the high quality & safety of food supplements as well as concrete policy proposals to cope with the regulatory challenges detailed in EHPM Manifesto for the food supplements in Europe.
- EU policy dialogue: Advocating the development of a level-playing field, fair regulatory framework that would recognize the role of health-products in the betterment of EU citizens’ health and in keeping the cost of the EU healthcare under control.
We proactively cooperate with the European Institutions and stakeholders to strengthen the overarching strategy for a healthier Europe enshrined in the Farm to Fork and the European Green Deal.
EHPM action aims to contribute to the solution of long-standing regulatory challenges with a proactive and balanced approach.
The full application of the Mutual Recognition Principle (Reg. (EU) 2019/515), a workable and fair approach to the assessment on Botanical Health Claims on foods and food supplements (Reg. (EU) 1924/2006), a proper and transparent use of the EU Risk Management Procedure concerning substances in foods and food supplements other than vitamins and minerals (Reg. (EU) 1925/2006): These are main regulatory objectives EHPM aims to achieve through the development of concrete inputs towards the European Institutions and National Authorities.
Besides the regulatory challenges peculiar to our sector, food business operators are facing an unprecedented challenge: Brexit will inevitably new create barriers to trade and cross-border exchanges. These changes are unavoidable and stakeholders must make sure they are ready for them. EHPM will provide its members with up-to-date information to meet this challenge.
