One of the co-founders of supplement company Natures Aid has been announced as the new Chair of the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association.
Lynn Lord takes on the top job, succeeding Martin Last, who served for the last three year. Lynn will be supported by Robert Taylor, from Vitabiotics, who is now Vice-Chair.
Graham Keen, Executive Director of the HFMA, commented: “Martin has been a driving force behind ensuring that this organisation is at the centre of the important debates that influence and
affect our industry. This work is warmly appreciated and recognised by the HFMA Council, and all those involved within the health food industry. Lynn has previously played a vital role on the Council for the past five years, the last three as vice-chair, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming Lynn to her new role.”
Looking ahead, Lynn added: “One of my key objectives in this new role is to look at how we are able to channel and improve HFMA efforts in vocalising our messages. We are also dedicated to continuing to support our membership to the best of our ability and pursue the areas we know will be of most benefit to them in protecting our industry. This includes our vital efforts to explore how we can help manufacturers, brand owners and distributors to have an appropriate regulatory framework to operate within.”
