"This globally trusted food safety and quality certification provides an additional level of assurance and commitment to our customers that BI's ingredients have been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest possible quality standards across all levels of the supply chain," noted George Pontiakos, President and CEO, BI Nutraceuticals.
