With Devon on board, we look forward to further advancing NPA’s mission of securing quality natural products for all, while moving the industry onward and upward.” 

“I’m thrilled to be joining NPA at a time of growth for the industry, especially as the association prepares to embark on fresh and compelling initiatives that will benefit all natural products industry stakeholders and consumers,” Powell said. “I’m eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to contribute to NPA’s evolution, and am excited to be involved in enhancing the association’s role within the industry.”
