Sabinsa Corporation announced today that its Payson, Utah, USA manufacturing facility is now registered to NSF International’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) program.
In addition to the distribution of Sabinsa’s branded, science-backed and patented ingredients to the global market, the Utah facility is a full-fledged contract manufacturing center providing finished dosages in bulk and bottled capsules and tablets, as well as providing intermediate steps, such as blending, mixing, milling, and granulating for ingredient customers. This facility also has in-house quality control labs covering analytical, chemical and microbiological testing to assure finished goods meet the highest standards. Inclusive are state-of-the-art stability chambers to allow for product stability testing in real time and accelerated conditions, helping customers place an accurate expiry date on their product.
Earning GMP registration from NSF International verifies that Sabinsa’s Payson facility has the proper methods, equipment, facilities, and controls in place for producing dietary supplement products. NSF GMPs were developed in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR part 111 regulation for dietary supplement manufacturing, packaging, and distribution. Utilizing GMP guidelines assists companies in developing and maintaining proper controls in their manufacturing process so that products are processed, manufactured and labeled in a consistent manner, and meet quality standards.
"Although we have been GMP compliant for a number of years, we felt that third party facility registration through NSF provided our customers with additional peace of mind," said Sabinsa Marketing Director Shaheen Majeed. "And since we are always working to be even better, additional sets of educated eyes on our facility will help us continue that dedication to excellence."
"As the variables in the QA programs of contract manufacturers becomes more pronounced, Sabinsa's earning NSF GMP registration for their Payson, Utah facility is a clear indication to customers and supply chain partners of their commitment to quality and safety. Sabinsa has an internal QA program seeking to constantly improve but welcomes NSF GMP registration for continual improvement, bringing additional rigor to make sure the company maintains GMP compliance," said Ed Wyszumiala, General Manager of NSF International’s Dietary Supplement programs.
