National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) was awarded for its "efforts on behalf of the industry" by the Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ).
Bill Bookout, president of NASC, accepted the award at the annual NBJ Summit in Dana Point, California, USA. The award recognizes NASC for establishing fair and consistent regulation for animal supplements that allows companies to keep products currently on the market, while working toward establishing a long-term legislative solution to ensure safety within the entire animal supplement industry.
“NASC took it upon itself to address and solve a regulatory problem using one voice and a cooperative approach that the human supplement industry should pay close attention to,” said Tom Aarts, co-founder of NBJ. “When legislation is finally created for animal supplements, NASC will have had an influential voice in the process that will benefit both its members and the industry in general.”
