EHPM was created in 1975 and represents approximately 1,750 health-product manufacturers in 14 European countries. Through our member associations we aim to provide consumers with safe, science-based, high quality products as well as accurate and helpful information about their nutritional value and use.

Over 90% of the companies that are members of EHPM through our national associations are SMEs. EHPM's focus is very much on securing a workable regulatory structure for these companies. EHPM is also a member of UEAPME (the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises), the European SME Umbrella organisation. UEAPME incorporates around 80 member organisations from 34 countries.

EHPM believes that:

  • Appropriate EU legislation for food supplements must be developed to prevent barriers to trade and ensure consumer choice"


Legislation on the levels of food supplement ingredients should be based on safety data obtained from nutrient appropriate scientific evaluation, to ensure the optimum health of consumers

Manufacturers should be able to respond to developments in nutrition science. Innovation must be encouraged to provide consumers with safe food supplements which meet their varied needs

Legislation must permit products to be accompanied by appropriate labelling information to educate consumers. Such measures will, in turn, improve the general health of the population and decrease the risk of some major diseases.

EHPM cooperates actively with the European Commission, the European Parliament, national governments, relevant trade associations and consumer groups, leading scientists and international contacts to reach consensus.
