Logan, UT, September 8, 2007 – A. M. Todd Botanical Therapeutics (AMTBT), a major supplier of botanical extracts and nutritional supplements, is now the exclusive North American agent for all products manufactured by Ningbo Green-Health Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (NGHP). This move further strengthens the long-standing relationship between AMTBT and NGHP. Earlier this year, AMTBT’s production was transferred to the NGHP facility.
This distribution agreement comes at a time when there is negative publicity in the media about the quality and safety of goods manufactured in China. Robert A. King, President of AMTBT, observed, “The truth is that the quality of goods manufactured in China can be very good with the right Chinese partner and proper Quality Control procedures in place. Basically, you get what you pay for. We have spent a lot of time in China and visited many facilities. We selected NGHP as our partner because of their long-standing commitment to quality which is evident in their robust SOPs and extensive documentation and testing procedures. NGHP’s manufacturing expertise, state-of-the-art equipment and large production capacity give us the ability to continue to support the growing needs of our customers with the quality of products they have come to expect from us. This agreement positions us to do things we couldn’t have done any other way.”
Corey Norton, Director of Nutritional Supplement Sales for AMTBT stated, “We are excited to offer our customers the expanded portfolio of NGHP products. NGHP is a trusted global supplier of high-quality chondroitin and glucosamine. They are also one of the top manufacturers of bilberry extract in the world, selling literally tons of bilberry extract into the highly regulated Japanese and European markets.”
“We are pleased to have this expanded access to the North American markets,” commented Ms. Shanyuan Dai, President of Ningbo Green-Health Pharmaceutical. “AMTBT has been in this business for a long time and has the relationships with customers that we need to continue to grow our business.”
