Meet our February Associate Member Spotlight: Reader’s Digest

The “Associate Member Spotlight” is a chance for CHP Canada to highlight to Active members and the consumer health products industry the Associate members who have contributed to the achievements of CHP Canada and the success of the consumer health products industry as a whole.

Each month a different Associate member, who has engaged in the Association’s member programs (attends networking events, sponsorships, participates in relevant committees, task forces, etc.), will be put in the “spotlight”. This will include being featured on our website homepage, blog, and newsletter, outlining the fantastic services and/or products the Associate member has available to our Active membership.
