Vancouver, Canada — March 7, 2016 — Mazza Innovation Ltd., a world-leading provider of premium-quality, solvent-free botanical extracts, is pleased to announce the opening of its first large-scale commercial extraction processing facility to produce its award-winning PhytoClean™ Cranberry, Green Tea and Blueberry extracts as well as other clean label ingredients for its customers. Mazza’s process is a significant advance in environmental standards for extraction technologies. The company will be exhibiting at the Engredea 2016 natural food products tradeshow in Anaheim, California, March 11–13, 2016.
The 38,000 sq.ft. facility has received its GMP certification and is fully compliant with the quality requirements of dietary supplements and natural health product manufacturers, including with organic customers in the near future. Since the Mazza PhytoClean process only uses water as its solvent, no costly solvent-handling environmental safety permits or explosion-proof equipment were needed in its construction. This translates into competitive pricing for its quality ingredients or contract manufacturing services offered to its customers.
“Opening and initiating large-scale production is an exciting and important milestone for Mazza as we enter commercial production of our advanced premium extracts for the customers who have placed orders,” said Benjamin Lightburn, president of Mazza Innovation. “We now have significant processing capability to fulfill demand and we’re exhibiting at Engredea to meet with customers to discuss orders and talk about the development of other innovative extract products. Our extraction technology can be applied to source many different botanical ingredients with higher purity than is typically available.”
Mazza will be exhibiting in booth #875 at Engredea and looks forward to meeting with current and potential customers. Last year at Engredea, Mazza’s first three commercial botanical extract products — cranberry, blueberry and green tea — were selected as the Most Innovative Ingredients during the 2015 Editors’ Choice Awards.
