Blauvelt, NY (Jan 26, 2009) – RFI, Blauvelt, NY, recently completed a successful audit of its contract and internal manufacturing facility by NSF International’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Registration program.  This voluntary, independent, third-party plant audit verifies the facility’s conformance to current Dietary Supplement GMPs.

GMPs are regulatory requirements recognized worldwide for quality control and management of all aspects of the manufacturing environment from raw material control to finished product release as well as employee training, validation of testing equipment, product traceability and facility maintenance. These guidelines for necessary processes, procedures, and documentation assure that RFI-manufactured products have the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that they are represented to possess.

To ensure continued performance, NSF will conduct periodic audits at RFI’s facility. For meeting GMP requirements, RFI receives a NSF GMP registration certificate and is listed on the NSF Web site. GMPs for the current NSF Dietary Supplements Program are included in NSF American National Standard 173-Dietary Supplements, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplements, and are consistent with the requirements that FDA has laid out in 21 CFR § 111.

“In the six months since our facility has been operational, we have received Kosher/Halaal Certification, NOP Organic Certification and now NSF GMP certification,” says Jeff Wuagneux, RFI’s President and CEO.  “NSF GMP certification confirms RFI’s continued commitment to quality and satisfaction and provides our customers confidence that our manufacturing facility is meeting established Dietary Supplement GMPs.”

RFI is a vertically-integrated manufacturer of innovative natural ingredients for the food, functional food and dietary supplement industries. The company, which was formed in 1989, specializes in the supply of quality ingredients (including certified-organic) and proprietary formulations.
