The quality of our ingredients and the manufacture of our products is absolutely key to our ethos. We choose the companies we work with very carefully and we only use the best manufacturers in the UK for the blending, encapsulation and tubbing of our products. It is important to us that they are regulated and adhere to the highest industry standards. The manufacturers we work with have the accreditations listed below.
Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP)
The manufacturing facilities we use are also fully GMP certified. GMP covers everything from manufacturing procedures to personnel, premises, equipment, storage and transport – all have to meet exacting standards. The standard defined as GMP are the same principles that underpin pharmaceutical medicine.
We do not cut any corners, if we cannot produce a product adhering to these high standards then, we won't. In this way our customers can have complete confidence that the highest standards have been followed when manufacturing each and every one of our products.
