NSF/ANSI 455-2 – Good Manufacturing Practices for Dietary Supplements and ISO 22000-2018 certification

We are happy to inform you that our brand new state of the art manufacturing facility is NSF 455-2 cGMP Good Manufacturing Practices for Dietary Supplements and ISO 22000 certified. We are very proud to carry these quality certificates that were granted in February and March 2024 at our new production site, which has been put into operation on April 15. These certifications guarantee that our manufacturing process meets the highest quality and (food)safety standards and assure quality and safety of the product.

What is GMP certification?

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are a system of processes, procedures and documentation to exert control of the product manufacturing to assure quality and safety of the product. These GMP standards under NSF/ANSI 455 were developed in accordance to American National Standards Institute requirements. NSF independently certifies manufacturers as meeting GMP requirements. Independent certification from the global public health organization demonstrates a commitment to dietary supplement quality and compliance with U.S. GMP requirements.

What is ISO certification?

ISO 22000 forms the basis for an international ISO food safety certificate and applies to the entire agro-food chain. ISO 22000 is based on HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) on one hand and management principles on systems, processes and communication according to ISO on the other hand. ISO certification verifies that the audited facilty is compliant to food safety and food defense rules.

Martijn van Dam, COO: “We are very proud of our team ‘s dedication to achieve our certifications, marking a significant milestone as we kick off production in our new facility.”

What do GMP and ISO certification mean for you?

Formulating effective, high-quality probiotics requires expert knowledge combined with a precise and thorough work ethic, at every step of the development chain. Winclove has this knowledge and links it to brand technology, housed in a GMP certified facility. This allows us to maintain full control over all critical development steps, ranging from strain selection to the production and packaging of the final products. Winclove’s commitment to food safety throughout the supply chain is underlined by its ISO 22000 certified food safety management system for the development and production of pre- and probiotics.
