SourceOne Signs Exclusive Partnership With Kangde

First and Largest Chinese Supplier of Chondroitin Sulfate Opens New Facility

CHICAGO, IL -- SourceOneTM Global Partners, a sales and marketing company providing proprietary branded ingredient programs to manufacturers and marketers, has partnered with Yantai Kangde Biochemical Products Co., Ltd, (Kangde) the first and largest Chinese supplier of chondroitin sulfate, for exclusive U.S. distribution rights.

“We chose SourceOne to distribute our chondroitin primarily because of their reputation, plus we trust their ability to build brand awareness,” stated Jiang Zhong-Li, chairman and president of Kangde. “Our new facility meets GMP standards and provides us with increased capacity to meet our growing customer base demanding superior quality and consistency.”

Kangde’s chondroitin sulfate surpassed industry standards even before new USP mandates were proposed. Kangde prides themselves on single facility production and in-house analysis and testing, correlated with independent labs to insure consistency, quality and reliability.

“We chose Kangde because of their commitment to quality and ability to custom manufacture chondroitin,” stated Jesse Lopez, president of SourceOne Global Partners. “Specifically, Kangde produces chondroitin in one facility for our branding partners’ individual needs to their exact specifications.”

Kangde was originally located in the Chengnan Industrial Park of Laiyang City in China, about 100km from Yantai Post and Qingdao Port. Their new facility, including the new plant, is located in Haiyang City, Shandong province, conveniently located near main transportation hubs including rail, air and sea portals. The new plant contains a production facility, research and development department, a state-of-the-art laboratory and financial affairs and sales departments.

SourceOne Global Partners, headquartered in Chicago, IL, represents a new breed of ingredient supplier, partnering with manufacturing clients to introduce powerfully branded, science-driven products to market with a unique product positioning and compelling consumer presence. SourceOne was conceived as a company whose core competency would be to integrate legitimate science with strong trade and consumer branding. They partner with leading suppliers worldwide to source and offer patented ingredients supported by proprietary science as part of turnkey marketing program that dramatically increases the odds for market success.
