ESM is Highlighted for Quality and GMP Compliance

ESM Technologies is highlighted in Nutrition Industry Executive’s June issue in their featured article “GMP Compliance”.  The article discusses the importance of supplement manufacturers choosing ingredient suppliers who have received their GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certification from NSF International.  Currently, this certification is directed toward manufacturers of finished products and supplements, and does not directly pertain to ingredient suppliers.  However, many suppliers are realizing the importance of attaining their cGMP certification as manufacturers are demanding more from them.

ESM Technologies is one of few ingredient suppliers to have already received their cGMP certification.  “Certification by NSF International demonstrates our continued assurance to maintaining exceptional quality standards, which has been made even more critical by the evolving regulatory environment in the U.S., the EU, & around the world,” comments Dr. Kevin Ruff, Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs for ESM.

“By obtaining NSF GMP certification, ESM is demonstrating their commitment to producing quality, consistent ingredients for the dietary supplement industry,” said Ed Wyszumiala, General Manager of NSF’s Dietary Supplement Certification Programs. “The value of ESM’s GMP certification is also transferred to their clients as they now have third-party verification that they are a qualified vendor that is meeting the highest GMP requirements.”

GMPs for the current NSF Dietary Supplements Program are included in NSF American National Standard 173-Dietary Supplements, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplements, and are consistent with the requirements that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has outlined in 21 CFR § 111.
