Food Products Association (FPA).

The merger of the Food Products Association (FPA) with the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), will herald a new phase in the development of the National Food Laboratory (NFL), which supports new product development in the food industry, the organization has claimed. Kevin Buck, president and CEO of the NFL, which is an independent affiliate of the FPA, said the merger would provide substantial opportunities for growth in the NFL's work in supporting innovation and new product development, as it becomes part of the nation's largest trade association serving the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods industry. Founded in 1976, the NFL's activities include new product strategy and concept development, product innovation and commercialization, sensory evaluation, consumer research, food safety, quality assurance and analytical testing.
