Chemical Vitamins and Health Supplements
The global manufacture, supply and marketing of vitamins and food supplements has recently come under increased scrutiny from the media, government bodies and consumer protection groups. What was once a fairly small, rather informal sector has grown into a multi-billion per year boom business. One of the consequences of this growth has been more rigorous oversight and increased regulation in the interests of public health.
National, international and simple liability has increased awareness of the need for independent, objective and reliable data along the supply chain to ensure product integrity. SGS provides you with a set of supply and analysis tools which enable the gathering of very detailed data. We also work with you to improve risk management and establish compliance with any form of commitment.
In addition to offering services to support ISO 2200 certification in food safety management systems, we provide:
