Qivana is a proud supporter of the Natural Products Foundation (NPF). The NPF is organized exclusively to stimulate and support research, education and knowledge regarding dietary supplements, nutritional foods, and related products, with the overall objective of advancing the knowledge of the public, and thereby, improving the public health.
Our CEO, Derek Hall currently serves as the Chairman of the NPF and has made it a major focus for himself personally and for Qivana in regards to the effort to level the playing field in the natural products industry.
Qivana intends to be a key player in the natural products industry for years to come and will do all it can to lead the charge against those who violate the regulations set out in the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA).
One of the initiatives currently underway by the NPF is called Truth in Advertising. Every month NPF’s attorneys send letters to companies who are violating the law, making them aware of their violation, with a recommendation as to how to remedy the violation. About 70% of those receiving letters make the required changes and achieve compliance. The names of those companies which do not comply are forwarded to the respective regulatory agency. The NPF works very closely with the FDA and FTC in this critical initiative.
The NPF is 501(c)3 non-profit organization which survives on donations from individuals and corporations. Qivana supports the Foundation with cash donations and extends its offer to all Qivana Business Owners to make a small donation. All donations to the NPF are tax deductible.
