Solbar Industries Ltd., Israel, reaffirms its commitment to producing unadulterated specialty soy protein products in its two facilities, Ashdod (Israel) and Ningbo (China). The company's Solbar Ningbo Food Co. Inc. Ltd. is wholly owned and managed by Solbar Israel. All Quality Assurance procedures are in accordance with strictest standards developed over twenty years as a market leader in the world of soy proteins.
According to Shaul Shelach, Solbar CEO, "In light of the latest melamine crisis in China we feel a responsibility to reassure our loyal customers inside and outside China that the Solbar quality assurance continues to be of utmost importance to our company. Since Solbar Ningbo was established (2005), the company is managed by Mr. Yossi Gohary, who holds years of experience managing food activities in China and Israel."
Trevor Meredith, Chief Technologist, recently returned from his annual audit of Solbar's Ningbo facility, reporting to Management that "our Ningbo colleagues continue to observe all QA processes. We are also doing special testing to monitor all raw materials in order to guarantee that there is no contamination from outside sources."
"The Solpro family of isolated soy proteins is manufactured in Solbar's Ashdod, Israel facility," Gary Brenner, V.P. Marketing and Development. "All Solbar manufacturing sites are certified ISO 9001:2000, HACCP, Kosher, Halal and operate in accordance with highest GMP standards. Solpro includes a wide range of products designed for emulsified meats and poultry, functional foods, beverages, cereals and bars."
Solbar is the third largest processor of specialty soy proteins in the world, with manufacturing plants in Israel and China. The company is publically traded on the Tel Aviv Exchange, and a majority stake is owned by a group of investors led by FIMI.
