Softgel Co. provides contract manufacturing services for softgels as well as bottling, packaging, and labeling.
Ingredient supplier Bioriginal Food & Science Corp. (Saskatoon, Canada) has acquired Softgel Co. (Grand Junction, CO), a contract manufacturer of softgels. The companies say the Softgel facility plans to double its capacity to accommodate demand for Bioriginal products, including bulk seed and fish oil ingredients. Target markets are the human nutrition and pet nutrition markets.
In addition to manufacturing both vegan and animal softgels, Softgel Co. offers bottling, labeling, and packaging services, as well as squeeze tube and tincture manufacturing.
In a press release, Bioriginal states that Softgel Co.’s 10 years of encapsulation experience as well as its ability to produce over one million softgels per shift makes the acquisition a natural next step for Bioriginal, which aims to control its entire manufacturing process.
“The addition of Softgel expands Bioriginal’s global supply abilities, removing the need to outsource softgel production, improving production efficiencies, and enhancing supply chain management,” stated Shannon Sears, president and CEO of Bioriginal, in the press release.
Sears added: “This level of vertical integration ensures what is on the label is in the bottle. Consumers deserve that level of confidence.”
