WHY DO WE EXIST?

CSS is a member-driven trade association of the dietary supplement industry, established to maintain sustainable, independently verifiable and transparent standards across the entire supplement supply chain.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Members collaborate to review proposed third-party verification standards across all aspects of the supply chain with the goal of creating a common consensus rooted in application of international best-practices, validated testing and reliable scientific evidence.

HOW DO WE BEHAVE?

We operate in a manner consistent with the high integrity of each of our member companies. Values we count as important include:

  • Transparency
  • Respect
  • Communication
  • Teamwork

HOW WILL WE SUCCEED?

Our coalition will succeed as we focus on:

  • Maintaining high integrity for our industry
  • Seeking ways to keep things simple for our supply chain and customers
  • Ensuring that transparency and sustainability are core elements to all solutions
  • Seeking points of commonality across member issues and opportunities
  • Recognizing that we will not agree on all matters and that we often compete for customers, but that the opportunity to raise the bar for our industry and avoid collective risk will only happen through a cooperative effort

WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW

HOW WILL WE MEASURE SUCCESS?


Our first priority is to collaborate with third party verifiers to create a credible Non-GMO standard specifically for dietary supplements.

Our success will be measured by the adoption of our recommended verification standards by respected third party verifiers.
