The new headquarters, located in Santa Ana, CA, will encompass 5,300 sq ft and will house more room for training seminars that will focus on topics such as GMP compliance and the intricacies of the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). These one- and two-day seminars, which the company bills as “highly cost effective,” will launch in early 2017. The company says the expanded facility will also be able to comfortably host larger single-client training events for companies with 30 or more QA/QC and regulatory staff members incorporating client-specific agendas and educational needs.
“The new headquarters allows for continued growth of our creative and dynamic work environment, and our team as a whole, as well as provides us with the space to launch new offerings and specialties for many years to come,” said Brandon Griffin, CEO of Ingredient Identity.
Griffin said one of the goals is to bring the cost of training and therefore compliance down so that fewer companies can complain that they can’t afford all of what FDA is demanding.
“We want to completely eliminate the basement level excuse that compliance or quality is ‘too expensive’ to do right or be competitive in the marketplace,” Griffin said.
