The mission of the NPA East is to support and sustain the rights of the natural products industry to do business in the 12 states that comprise the East region. As the leading voice for the profession, our primary purpose is to advocate for the rights of consumers to have access to products that will maximize and maintain their health, and for the rights of retailers and suppliers to sell these products.
NPA East unites a diverse membership, from the small health food store owner to the largest natural foods suppliers and manufacturers. We champion consumers' freedom of choice in our marketplace as well as strengthening and safeguarding the rights of retailers, suppliers, and others who support our industry. NPA East creates an environment that stimulates strong markets, which in turn, fuel growth for our constituency. We act together with uncompromising integrity, and we encourage all to reach even higher standards of quality.
The primary benefit of membership in NPA East is advocacy. By building a network of active members throughout the region, we champion the rights of retailers at the statehouses, keeping watchful eyes on legislation that could harm our industry and prevent our members' right to do business. We also encourage legislation that supports the goals and objectives of the industry. No other organization provides this critical service to the retailers and suppliers that reside in the East region.
The National Products Association (NPA East) was established in 1970 in Washington, D.C., as a non-profit corporation, U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501-C (6). We promote optimum health by preserving access to, and facilitating markets for natural products, including natural and organic foods, vitamins, supplements and cosmetics.
