International Accreditation Assures Customers That Company Maintains the Highest Standards in Food Production
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. Florida, NY, February 16, 2007 - Burgundy Botanical Extracts, a leading French manufacturer and supplier of plant extracts for dietary and food supplements, is the first European extractor to be awarded the food industry’s highest international quality standard designation for food safety management. This certification demonstrates Burgundy’s commitment to food safety and assures customers that their products, available exclusively in the United States through Pharmline, Inc., are manufactured using the highest safety standards.
ISO 22000, introduced in September 2005, is the accepted international standard that defines and unifies the requirements of a food safety management system. This standard makes it easier for international companies and organizations to implement hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) plans. Growing international regulations and demands from consumers have made food safety a major concern. Global food processors increasingly value the ISO 22000 certification to ensure that their suppliers are following approved safety standards.
Greg Berthomieu, business development manager at Pharmline, said: "Burgundy has always been committed to high standards in processing, having been previously certified as ISO 9001. Their achievement of the ISO 22000 certification underscores their continued commitment to quality. Partnering with them enables us to provide consistently safe ingredients to our customers.”
