Biological Products Trade Association Changes Name
The Biological Products Industry Alliance (BPIA), formerly the BioPesticide Industry Alliance, is the new name of the U.S.-based trade association representing the biological products industry. BPIA membership includes biological products manufacturers and marketers, distributors, growers, food processors and service providers supporting agriculture, public health, forestry and specialty markets such as home and garden, turf and ornamentals and structural pest control.
The organization unveiled its new name at its semi-annual meeting last week.
In October of last year, the BPIA Board voted to expand its membership categories to include the biostimulants industry as well as growers and food processors. The burgeoning organization now represents more than 120 member companies and reports a 25 percent increase in membership in the last year.
BPIA’s next semi-annual meeting will be in Orlando, Florida, during the week of October 9.
