Ogden, Utah—The National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) just awarded Trace Minerals Research of Ogden, Utah with the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification for its compliance with manufacturing standards in the dietary supplements industry. Such a certification helps Trace Minerals Research maintain a strong and competitive business.
“This certification says to consumers, retailers and international buyers of our products that we are committed to producing safe and quality products,” said Matt Kilts, Managing Partner of Trace Minerals Research. “This helps us to stay competitive in a very competitive market.”
Of the 621 supply and manufacturer members of the NNFA, Trace Minerals Research is in the top 50 of those who have been GMP certified.
The NNFA’s GMP Program is performed by third-party auditors that follow a set of standards that have been determined based upon dialogs with suppliers and manufacturers, other trade organizations, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Auditors conduct inspections of suppliers in areas that include personnel, sanitation, equipment, quality operations, production and distribution. These inspections bring a means of self-assessment to the dietary supplement industry.
Trace Minerals Research has been in the natural products industry for the past 35 years, founded in 1969. It supplies raw ingredients to manufacturers in addition to manufacturing and marketing its own full line of complete vitamin and mineral supplements.
