The Kratom industry serves millions of Americans each year, enabling individuals to benefit from this natural and safe botanical. We are committed to being a resource for Kratom manufacturers and retailers – and the consumers they serve.

Mission: Our mission is to protect Mitragyna speciosa (Kratom) by supporting and defending the businesses that sell it, crafting quality standards that all manufacturers and retailers can utilize, and using grassroots advocacy to educate policymakers and the general public.

Vision: Uniting the Kratom industry. Freedom of choice for consumers. Quality standards created by the industry, for the industry, and adopted by the industry. Regulation based on scientific evidence, not misconceptions.  

Values: We are committed to accomplishing our goals with integrity, truth, openness, and collaboration.
