Manufacturing site quality

Alongside our ingredients-sourcing expertise and diligence, we’ve developed premix blending facilities with your product goals in mind. Our global manufacturing facilities are well-equipped to meet food production and infant nutrition standards, resulting in a superior premix every time.

Facility access

Transparency and accountability are essential to building confidence in our products, services, and overall food safety and quality management. Therefore, our customers are always welcome to visit the facilities at any of our sites to see our production processes, controls, and premix quality management processes in person.



Quality management as a tool for compliance


Prinova's premix quality management expertise is a powerful tool for ensuring food and infant food production safety compliance. With our experience and understanding of regulatory requirements, our team of experts has the knowledge and skills to navigate complex compliance issues. Additionally, our commitment to continuous improvement and staying up to date with evolving global regulations allows us to give our customers guidance and support where needed, ensuring their products meet the highest quality and compliance standards.



Validated methods and equipment

Our comprehensive quality control laboratories, research and development labs, and in-house testing all contribute to improving quality. Our methods have been developed and validated to accommodate varying concentration levels of nutrients with a broad spectrum of detection levels. We specifically work to eliminate any possible matrix interference inherent to premixes. 

 

This expertise is critical to ensure the reliability of the testing performed – a result that consumer-goods testing methods can’t always achieve on concentrated blends. We routinely support customers through validation and stability studies to secure compliance with finished products. 

 

Our state-of-the-art laboratories offer a wide range of testing capabilities, such as UPLC, HPLC, FT-IR, ICP-OES, GC, and GS-MS. Please contact us to discuss your specific testing requirements. Additionally, we implement DocuWare and LIMS management systems for data analysis, storage, and retrieval that are reliable and secure.


Analytical expertise

Our analytical chemists and laboratory technicians are experts in their fields. Their education, qualifications, and long-standing experience in the food and pharmaceutical industries provide excellent technical support to our quality-assurance efforts. To establish the reliability and repeatability of the methods used, our labs take part in multiple annual proficiency tests globally and locally.


Certificate of analysis

Our teams verify all data reported on each Certificate of Analysis. Once approved, you’ll receive a digital copy of your CoA via email, allowing you to get the CoA to your quality department before the shipment arrives. Additionally, you’ll receive a physical copy with your shipment. The content of the certificate is fully customizable to meet customer needs, and all results are fully traceable.
