What is health and supplement product assurance?

Consumers are demanding clear verification that the food and dietary supplements, health foods, nutraceuticals, and alternative medicines that their families use meet, and even exceed, all regulatory requirements. 

Quality control in the health and supplement industry addresses safety and quality throughout the entire supply chain. Auditing, testing and inspection of the product at each stage verifies that it satisfies a wide range of national and international food safety and regulatory requirements.

Our health and supplement product testing involves analysing nutrients present in water and auditing the production process, among other activities. We offer supplement certification services to evaluate the purity, composition, and potency of the product to certify that the product meets the standard requirements.

Why is health and supplement product safety important?

Testing, inspection, auditing, and supplement certification of food supplements and health products have become crucial for product development, manufacturing and distribution. While proving that products are safe for human consumption is vital, demonstrating a product’s efficacy to prove health claims made for promotional purposes is a key element in gaining a competitive advantage in this increasingly crowded marketplace.

Dietary supplement certification enables manufacturers and retailers to easily adopt the latest regulations and comply with the legal requirements of multiple markets across the globe.
