The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) has announced another expansion in its membership as Cornelius joins Europe’s voice for the sports nutrition industry.

Cornelius has become one of the latest companies to commit ourselves to ESSNA’s core values of the highest safety standards and upholding EU regulations on the content and labelling of sports nutrition products.

The boost to ESSNA’s membership, which brings the total number of members up to over fifty, follows its first global conference, which took place in Brussels in September. The conference centred on discussions around the future of the sports nutrition industry at a crucial time for the sector, and saw a range of speakers from the EU Commission, UK Anti-Doping and UNESDA, among others.

Joy Thomas, Technical Business Manager at Cornelius said:

"We are very excited about joining ESSNA as the Sports Nutrition market is one of the key areas of focus for Cornelius. In addition to our stringent quality and audit procedures, regulatory compliance is a top priority for us. Membership is key to our aims and we look forward to working closely with ESSNA and other members."

ESSNA is the voice of the sports nutrition industry in dialogue with regulators and policy makers and it campaigns in favour of proportionate EU legislation that does not adversely affect the industry. ESSNA also acts as a “police” to the industry by monitoring and reporting irresponsible companies, which flout EU law and may put consumers at potential risk from dangerous products.
