City of Industry, CA, February 10, 2010 — Best Formulations, a contract manufacturer of OTC and nutraceutical softgels, capsules, tablets, capsules, powders, and teas recently received the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for Sport designation from NSF International.
NSF International’s GMP for Sport program is designed to minimize the risk that a dietary supplement or sports nutrition product contains banned substances. This particular program was created to meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches, and others concerned about banned substances in sports supplements.
“It’s important that we take an active role in ensuring the safety of the products we manufacture. The GMP for Sport program from NSF International is just another way we can protect against adulteration and demonstrate that our facility and operations are GMP compliant. NSF is also widely recognized in the sports supplement field, so this instills additional confidence with our customers,” commented Robin Koon, Senior Vice President.
Eugene Ung, Chief Executive Officer, added “We don’t look at these additional certifications as an expense. Rather, we view them as investments critical to the continued growth and success of our customers.”
NSF International’s GMP for Sport requires two annual GMP for Sport facility audits and manufacturer affidavits to verify that Best Formulations does not source any ingredients on the World Anti-Doping Agency, National Football League (NFL), Major League Baseball (MLB), or Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) banned substances lists.
“Obtaining the NSF GMP for Sport designation helps illustrate Best Formulations’ commitment in manufacturing high-quality products,” said Edward Wyszumiala, General Manager of NSF International’s Dietary Supplement Certification Programs. “Selecting a sports supplement manufacturer can be difficult. Seeking out manufacturers that have received GMP for Sport, such as Best Formulations, is your best protection as this certification verifies that all GMP requirements have been met and that athletic banned substances have not been sourced.”
