Jarrow Rogovin, never a man to mince his words, says it is high time the IPA and other trade groups stepped up to the plate to defend a sector that has been under regulatory siege on both sides of the Atlantic for several years.

Speaking at the recent Microbiota conference in Paris, the owner and president of Californian dietary supplements manufacturer, Jarrow Formulas, and one of the founders of the International Probiotics Association (IPA), said more action was required to take on what he called, in Europe at least, regulatory “dirty pool”.

“We are going to have to see the trade associations, including the IPA, more active in going higher up the feeding chain to the [European] Commission and insisting on who gets appointed to these boards,”​ Rogovin said.
