NPA Midwest/MAHO began as the Great Lakes Health Organization years prior to being chartered as the Mid-American Health Organization (MAHO) on July 9, 1975, in the State of Minnesota. In the mid-90’s the National Nutritional Foods Association requested that all regions take on the same affiliate name of the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) with regional identification. In 2008, NNFA went through another evolution to better encompass the definition of this industry and became the Natural Products Association (NPA). NPA Midwest/MAHO then became one of the five chartered regions of the Natural Products Association.
