Member companies of International Probiotics Association (IPA), Global Alliance for Probiotics (GAP) and Yoghurt Live Fermented Milks Association (YLFA) are joining forces to create a single broad representative platform – a European branch of IPA, called International Probiotics Association Europe (IPA Europe).
The creation of a European branch of IPA will reinforce IPA as the global voice of probiotics and is a natural evolution from an increasingly successful collaboration between these associations, which together represent about sixty companies. IPA Europe will seek to expand even further, and is open to membership applications from companies.
As the precise structure and governance of the IPA Europe is still under discussion, GAP/YLFA will continue to exist until the new organization is formally established. Further information will be announced in the coming weeks.
Any questions directly linked to the creation of IPA Europe can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
