Cyanotech Receives GMP Certification

Cyanotech has received GMP certification (Good Manufacturing Practices) from the Natural Products Association. This latest certification is very important as it demonstrates our continuing role as the leader in quality among microalgae producers. Cyanotech was the first microalgae company in the world to be ISO certified, and we are one of only two Spirulina manufacturers that have attained the US FDA's GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe). "Cyanotech has been operating under GMP guidelines for many years, but we see this official GMP certification as an important document to prove to the world that we follow strict quality guidelines," said Cyanotech's Founder and CEO, Dr. Gerald Cysewski. "In this age of uncertainty in sourcing products, it is very important to know that you can obtain outstanding quality Natural Astaxanthin and Spirulina from Cyanotech.”
