Mazza Innovation Earns NSF GMP Registration for Botanical Extraction Facility
September 15, 2016
Mazza Innovation Ltd. is pleased to announce that its Delta, British Columbia botanical extraction facility is now a GMP (good manufacturing practices) facility registered by NSF International. Mazza’s facility produces high-quality, clean-label botanical extracts for health, nutrition, beauty and personal care products using its award-winning PhytoClean™ water-based extraction method. Mazza’s process is a significant quality and earth-friendly advance beyond current industry solvent-based extraction technologies, and the company has already achieved organic certification under the U.S., Canadian, European and Japanese organic regimes.
Earning GMP registration from NSF International verifies that Mazza’s botanical extract production facility has the proper methods, equipment, facilities and controls in place for producing dietary supplement ingredients at a consistently high level of quality. NSF’s certification parameters were developed in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR part 111 regulations for the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of dietary supplements. Utilizing GMP guidelines assists companies to develop and maintain proper controls in their manufacturing processes so that products are manufactured and labelled in a consistent manner while meeting quality standards.
“The entire Mazza team is exceptionally pleased to achieve NSF International GMP facility registration that is recognized by the U.S. FDA and throughout the global marketplace," said Mazza Innovation president Benjamin Lightburn. “We’ve had an outstanding response from so many potential customers since we opened our new production facility earlier this year, and GMP registration confirms to the marketplace that Mazza has the quality processes to match its exciting innovative technology. We view GMP registration as a significant company milestone."
“NSF International welcomes Mazza Innovation Ltd. as a GMP registered facility," said Dr. Cheryl Luther, general manager, dietary supplement program, NSF International. “NSF International is the leader in dietary supplement GMP facility registrations, and Mazza Innovation joins over 567 NSF GMP-registered facilities who have met the requirements of the most rigorous GMP program available."
