GMP registration demonstrates Mazza's commitment to the quality production of botanical extracts for health, nutrition, beauty and personal care products, and complements the company’s existing organic certifications
Mazza Innovation is pleased to announce that its Delta, British Columbia, botanical extraction facility is now a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) 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 US, 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 US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR part 111 regulations for the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of dietary supplements. Utilising 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 recognised by the US 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,' he added.
'NSF International welcomes Mazza Innovation as a GMP registered facility,' said Dr Cheryl Luther, General Manager, Dietary Supplement Programme, 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 programme available.'
About the Mazza PhytoClean method: The PhytoClean water-based extraction process purifies and concentrates bioactives by pressurising water at moderate temperatures; this greatly increases the water’s ability to solubilise bioactive compounds.
In effect, this extraction process generally provides better yields and purities than industrial solvents. This environmentally friendly, clean process can be applied to extract a wide range of compounds for use in nutraceuticals, cosmetics, flavourings, colourings, pharmaceuticals, functional foods and beverages.
