“The Gluten-free Market: A Market Overview and How to Achieve Best-in-Class Certification”

Webinar, Thursday, July 31, 11 a.m.- 12 noon

Being able to demonstrate that your products are safe for the gluten-free consumer via a label with a visible certification mark from a highly qualified certifier is a true differentiator in the fast-growing and highly competitive gluten-free marketplace. In partnership with the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, UNPA presents a one-hour webinar on the exploding growth of these products, including information on certification and labeling that goes beyond end-product testing to include ingredient sourcing, employee training, cleaning practices, cross-contamination controls, operational management and an effective end-to-end testing plan.

Free to UNPA members; nonmembers: $99

“GMOs and Dietary Supplements: An update on the Supply Chain, Certification, Testing and Meeting Retailer and Consumer Expectations”

In-person seminar, Thursday, Sept. 4, Salt Lake City, UT

The path to certification for the labeling and certification for non-GMO food ingredients is relatively straightforward at this point, but that’s not the case for dietary supplement ingredients. Learn about the current status of GMO labeling, certification and testing, as well as an update on state and national legislative labeling efforts and most importantly, how to overcome supply chain issues, including meeting both retailer and consumer expectations in this timely and solutions-focused, one-day seminar.

Full seminar information and registration will be issued shortly, including registration discounts for UNPA members.

“21 CFR 111 Dietary Supplement GMP Overview & Top 10 Ways to Get a Warning Letter”

NSF Dietary Supplement Training

In-person training, July 22-24, Denver, CO

Prevent FDA warning letters! There’s still time to register your staff for this important educational opportunity, presented by NSF International in partnership with UNPA:

  • cGMP compliance requires that supplement companies engage in ongoing staff training
  • FDA inspectors look for records indicating staff training during their inspections
  • A number of UNPA member companies have reported a “no 483” outcome from recent FDA facilities inspections

These NSF sessions in Denver provide a convenient opportunity for your new employees and those that might be new to QA responsibilities to gain this training. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity—which includes a 10 percent UNPA member discount for both courses—to fulfill one of your responsibilities under 21 CFR 111.
