The Food and Drug Administration last month published the good manufacturing practices for the dietary supplement industry, most significantly requiring all dietary supplement manufacturers to test and qualify their raw ingredient sources. The GMPs could help boost consumer confidence, and consequently sales, in an industry where confidence has waned in the past few years. However, it was almost anticlimactic as the industry prepares to mull through the 800-plus pages of the GMP document.

They'll be meeting amid a marketplace teeming with growth potential but whipsawed by intense price competition, Medicare drug benefits and renewed pressure on pharmacy gross margins.

Both supplement industry advocates and lawmakers are putting into motion early this year initiatives that finally will apply a little credibility to an often-criticized industry. Two industry groups — the Dietary Supplement Education Alliance and the Council for Responsible Nutrition — will be kicking off media campaigns this spring to better educate the press on supplement issues. And Congress in late December passed legislation requiring serious adverse events associated with nutritional supplements be reported to the Food and Drug Administration, an initiative that is expected to inject a jolt of much-needed credibility back into the industry.
