Suanfarma has attained USDA Organic and Fair for Life (FFL) certifications at its New Jersey, US site and for the new facility in Utah, US to serve the high demand from customers on the West Coast. With these two locations, Suanfarma can more efficiently cover market demand.
The new facility, with 165,000 sq ft of storage and 30,000 sq ft of refrigerated storage, has all the systems necessary to uphold the quality of FFL and organic-certified ingredients. FFL certification endorses a solid dedication to social responsibility, environmental sustainability, and ethical supply chain practices. The certification effort underscores Suanfarma’s commitment to making a positive impact on both people and the planet.
Fair For Life commitment
Suanfarma partners with suppliers who undergo an evaluation process to ensure they offer quality ingredients to the market.
“We are proudly increasing our organic, Fair For Life ingredients line, including ashwagandha extract, banaba leaf extract, organic cinnamon powder, melissa (lemon balm) extract, tart cherry powder, organic turmeric powder, organic ginger powder, and many others,” said Tammy Walton, business development manager for Suanfarma.
“We believe fair trade should apply to the entire supply chain,” Walton continued. “This requires ensuring everyone involved in the process is fairly treated, and that environmental considerations are paramount. Ultimately, this ensures Suanfarma USA can offer a great range of trusted organic ingredients. A transparent and ethical supply chain is vital to all stakeholders, and we are excited to continue making a positive and lasting impact on society and the world we share.”
Suanfarma’s main supplier supports farmers, from supplying cultivation materials to ensuring the dispatch of harvested produce after primary processing on the farm. Its field officers visit the farms to supervise and provide technical and financial assistance as needed. It also upcycles solid herbal waste into vermicompost for use as manure by neighbouring farms and gardens. The effluent water is thoroughly treated and used for gardening purposes. There are multiple dust collectors in all area operations to minimize pollution and enhance safety for their workers.
Access to ingredient range
Besides its full range of organic, FFL ingredients, Suanfarma USA customers also get access to the company´s line of wellness (Metabolaid, Move!Plx, and RelaxPlx) and beauty-from-within (Nutroxsun, Zeropollution, and Eternalyoung) ingredients. These ingredients are backed by clinical studies, and recognised worldwide through international awards. Zeropollution was recently awarded the ingredient of the year in the beauty-from-within category, and Metabolaid won the ingredient of the year in the weight management category at the NutraIngredients USA Awards 2023.
