BI is Feeding the Good Food Future!
BI is a global full-service supplier of dietary supplement and functional food ingredients including plant-based powders and extracts, fibers and proteins, vitamins and minerals, granular ingredients, custom blends, and other specialty ingredients. With almost 40 years of business experience, BI offers extensive sourcing expertise, innovative manufacturing technologies, and superior quality standards. BI also conducts extensive species identification and quality testing on every ingredient so manufacturers can be assured each one meets clean label claims.
BI’s supply chain spans over 40 countries, requiring detailed attention to environmental and sustainability considerations. These considerations have been at the core of BI’s business since its inception. BI established a Global Quality and Compliance division to manage its worldwide vendor surveillance program and provide real time sourcing intelligence to meet stringent regulatory requirements. The program also provides clear guidelines on specifications, test methods and product quality. BI works closely with its partners to ensure best practices in managing environmental impact and resource consumption.
On a local level, BI has evaluated internal operations such as water usage for ways to reduce consumption. In an attempt to be more efficient, the company developed a steam sterilization process and made adjustments to BI’s irrigation schedule, saving over 2.5 million gallons of water in just its first year. This practice was established as both an attempt to maintain high product quality, as well as guarantee future development.
BI’s focus is on meeting the increased consumer demand for ethically sourced, quality ingredients.
