Fry has worked for more than 30 years in virtually every phase of
the dietary supplement business, ranging from the importation and
procurement of raw materials, through formulation and marketing
of consumer products, to the wholesale and retail distribution of
supplements. Ed believes that the free flow of coherent, truthful,
and empowering information is as essential to the well-being of
consumers as the products themselves.
