The partnership sees Farbest leverage its national sales and distribution network to market these products to the U.S. food and beverage industry.
New Jersey-based Farbest is set to introduce a complete range of Gushen soy isolates for virtually every food and beverage application, said the company.
"Farbest is proud to partner with Gushen to bring the highest quality soy products to our customers," said Dan Meloro, president of Farbest Brands. "In a market where companies are increasingly concerned about rising commodity prices, Gushen soy protein isolates from Farbest provide exceptional value along with health benefits and formulation flexibility."
All production processes in Gushen’s state-of-the-art production facility in Shandong Province, China, from oil extraction to isolate production, are monitored according to certified HACCP, ISO 22000-2005, and ISO 9001-2000 standards. Strict quality control is maintained from farm to processing plant, said the company, ensuring the raw materials are pure and unadulterated.
