European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA)
The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) is the voice of the sports nutrition industry across Europe. Its membership includes international sport nutrition brands; specialist companies; ingredients’ suppliers; industry publications; and national associations.
ESSNA campaigns in favour of appropriate and proportionate EU legislation that does not adversely affect the sector. To do this, we are in close dialogue with a wide variety of stakeholders to do this. We work with officials from the European Commission and the European Food Safety Agency, Member States’ Governments, Parliamentarians from the European Parliament and Member State legislatures and other trade bodies and sporting organizations, so that we are best able to represent the views of the specialist sector in a wide range of discussions.
ESSNA also takes the argument for sports nutrition and the reputable brands involved in the industry to TV and radio, the mainstream press and the specialist media, as well as to anti-doping organisations. We work to disassociate responsible brands from those tarnishing the reputation of the sector and so improve perceptions of the industry. All ESSNA Members sign up to the ESSNA Constitution that insists that they abide by all relevant rules and regulations.
