Our membership includes big international sport nutrition brands; smaller specialist companies; ingredients’ suppliers; and national associations.

ESSNA was founded in 2003 with the intention of creating a forum for discussion and vehicle for actions on the concerns of the specialist sports nutrition sector in order to secure appropriate and proportionate European legislation on sports nutrition products.

Today, ESSNA is 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 Code of Conduct that insists that they abide by all relevant rules and regulations.
