The Madison-based company achieved the certification in just 17 months after gaining occupancy of their new, state-of-the-art facility.
“We had the unique experience of building this facility from the ground up which allowed us to design and engineer quality into each step of the probiotic fermentation process,” said Kim Rivard, Director of Quality. “This level of upfront control and design made obtaining this certification a smoother process than I've experienced.”

We hold food safety and quality in the highest esteem so that we can continue to provide products that support the education and improvement of health and wellbeing worldwide.”
