CRN approaches 150 members with new voting and associate members

Five more companies have joined the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), with three joining as voting members, and two new associate members.

The new members, which include Balchem, Solix BioSystems, Inc., and Suan Farma, Inc., as voting members and  NutriMarketing and Vanguard Global Associates LLC as associate members, take CRN’s roster to almost 150 member companies.

“Our goal is to seek out companies that are committed to the long-term, sustainable and responsible growth of the industry, and we’re proud to have these new companies with us,” said Steve Mister, president and CEO of CRN. “We’ve been very successful in serving our membership, and our efforts will continue to be strengthened as we continue to bring in strong companies.”

Reaping the rewards

CRN introduced a new dues structure last year, a strategy that has “reaped huge rewards”, Mister told us recently. The association now recognizes four categories of voting members: Branded finished product manufacturers, contract manufacturers, ingredient manufacturers, and ingredient representatives/distributors. Each category has different dues rates to reflect their relative business models and profit margins.
