Nutrition Business Journal highlights NASC

The U.S. Animal Nutrition Industry is the focus of the August 2009 Nutrition Business Journal. The role of NASC in providing a regulatory framework for the marketing of animal supplements is covered extensively throughout the issue.


In this issue, the growing pet market is explored from every product category – supplements, natural and organic foods, beverages, personal care and household items. NBJ also presents its 2008 sales estimates for the U.S. pet and animal market. Leading and emerging companies, brands and products, as well as industry trends, are also profiled.


Bill Bookout, NASC President, describes the regulatory landscape for animal supplements and explains what human nutrition companies could learn from the NASC approach (see the article on page 19). Interviews with representatives from numerous NASC member companies provide additional insight into the animal supplement industry. (A list of all NASC Members mentioned in the issue is found below.)
