The ETA was established in 1970 to represent the interests of the enzyme industry across North America. In recent years, however, a need for consistent, globally-harmonized support for the enzyme industry led the ETA to expand its membership to Central and South American companies in 2016. “As enzymes grow in popularity and use in various industries, more companies engage the ETA for support in promoting education, health, safety and regulatory considerations for enzyme products,” said John Sedivy, Chair of ETA. “It’s our goal to provide an international collaborative forum for these activities to take place. The close business relationships between many North-, Central-, and South American enzyme companies provided the catalyst for expanding the ETA’s membership.”
