ZMC Ingredients Achieve Requirements for USP Ingredient Verification Program

The Woodlands, Texas (7/25/2008) – Zhejiang Medicine Company, Ltd. (ZMC) located at 59 East Huanchang Road Xinchang, Zhejiang Province 312500 Peoples Republic of China proudly announces its USP grade ingredients D-alpha tocopheryl succinate, D.L alpha tocopheryl acetate and D-alpha tocopheryl acetate have, in addition, been found to be in compliance with the requirements of the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Ingredient Verification Program.

USP based its decision to grant this determination of quality based upon three factors; (a) a good manufacturing practices audit conducted at the site noted above; (b) a review of the manufacturing and quality control/quality assurance documentation; and (c) laboratory testing.

The USP verification of ZMC manufactured Vitamin E ingredients assures the ingredients:
• Are consistent in quality from batch to batch;
• Meet label or certificate of analysis claims for identity, strength, purity and quality;
• Are prepared in accordance with accepted manufacturing processes.

“ZMC has repeatedly committed itself to becoming a world leader in quality and value. This important respected third party endorsement of ZMC natural and synthetic Vitamin E underscores the belief that excellence and confidence are foremost considerations in all aspects of ZMC’s manufacturing and sales process. ZMC is the first supplier to have received this approval for CoQ10, Beta-Carotene, and now both synthetic and natural Vitamin E. ZMC joins respected industry leaders such as Ocean Nutrition and Sigma Tau in achieving this respected USP recognition of its ingredients.
This represents what we expect will be an ongoing interaction with USP to support the numerous ingredients we produce, “said Scott Steinford, President, ZMC-USA, LLC. “Customers are increasingly requiring the knowledge the products they purchase are truly of the highest quality and manufactured to the foremost standards. The USP Ingredient Verification Program reinforces the message of excellence, well above simply meeting USP requirements, to our customers in a way no internally produced message possibly could communicate. The key to any quality ingredient is how the product is made and not simply where it is made. The trust and confidence from the USP verification is truly representative of the overall mission ZMC seeks to achieve on a daily basis”.
