Gemini was the first contract manufacturer to gain certification under the RIBUS Certified Contract Manufacturer Program, and has utilized Ribus’ rice-based alternatives, Nu-FLOW and Nu-RICE, for several years to provide clean label dietary supplement formulas. Nu-FLOW and Nu-RICE enabled supplement companies to comply with the organic regulatory changes to remove silicon dioxide by the November 2014 deadline.
“Our familiarity with the Ribus family of ingredients has offered Gemini the opportunity to design and to manufacture nutritional products for our accounts by eliminating traditional inactive ingredients without sacrificing the quality or efficacy of the formulations,” said Michael Finamore, CEO of Gemini Pharmaceuticals, Inc. “We’re excited to be able to expand our capabilities once again with the availability of Nu-MAG, making Gemini and even more effective partner for our valued customers.”
Steve Peirce, President of Ribus, said: “Not only was Gemini the first Ribus CCM, they have distinguished themselves as a primary advocate and innovator of nutritional products incorporating RIBUS’ Nu-RICE and Nu-FLOW, with over 500 products now utilizing those ingredients for both functional and nutritional benefits.
“Gemini has continuously demonstrated their ability to stay ahead of the leading edge of ingredient trends, while positioning themselves as experienced and able partners who can offer clients a demonstrated knowledge and expertise in commercially producing tablets and capsules using Nu- FLOW, Nu-RICE, and now Nu-MAG, our Magnesium Stearate replacer.”
