Activ’Inside (Bordeaux, France) has invested over $13 million in a contract manufacturing factory in Beychac and Caillau (Gironde) to accelerate development of 360 degree services that ranges from scientifically validated ingredients to customized dietary supplements. The new 3,200 square meter building is currently under construction and expected to be completed in the first half of 2023. It will be 20 kilometers from the company’s headquarters in Bordeaux and be comprised of an application laboratory with equipment that allows Activ’Inside to develop, analyze, and control the quality of products under optimal conditions. The production lines housed in the factory will include: premixing, gummy manufacturing, and packaging.

"We have noticed an evolution of our customers' requests for a while now,” said Benoit Lemaire, CEO and co-founder of Activ’Inside, in a press release. “While they used to ask us for innovative and effective ingredients to formulate, they are now requesting for complete support from the choices of ingredients to the realization of the finished product, all with a marketing perspective and regulatory validation. These customers’ needs are the reasoning behind Activ'Inside Manufacturing.”

Activ’Inside has also made a pledge of Corporate Social Responsibility, adopting a sustainable framework for its environmental impact and social policy. "The construction of the site was designed to limit our environmental impact and achieve a high level of energy performance of the building, particularly through an innovative heat recovery system,” explained Stéphane Rey, Activ’Inside co-founder. “In addition, we are equipping ourselves with hi-tech industrial equipment in terms of the environment, such as a production line dedicated to manufacture gummies (with a low water consumption). Future installations of a 1,000m² photovoltaic panels are also planned in order to achieve auto-consumption of the electricity produced. Further approach will be taken in regard to the factory's operations, such as the eco-design of products and the waste management plan.”
