Organized by Nutraingredients USA, we’ll be discussing the competitive nature of the dietary supplement and functional food markets, the different expectations of consumers in these markets, market trends, regulatory considerations, success stories and more. The panel also includes:

• Jason Sapsin, a former Associate Chief Counsel of the US-FDA and current Fox Rothschild attorney working in the FDA regulatory, intellectual property and life sciences practices
• Jeff Hilton, Chief Marketing Officer at BrandHive, and a longtime public relations and brand development consultant in the natural products and foods businesses.

Recent Raves for Tap~Root

I’m pleased to share this recent feedback from a client:

“Risa Schulman has been a great partner in bringing our product to market. Her logical, thoughtful, and consistent manner is well grounded in regulatory experience and a love for communicating scientific and clinical concepts. One of the most helpful aspects was her mentorship as I learned to perform a first-pass regulatory review with more objective criteria. I truly have enjoyed working with her and hope that I continue to have the opportunity to do so.”Kehl Sink, Program Director, BioPharmX, Inc.
