Build relationships with the right ingredient suppliers by using this helpful document.
The Standardized Information on Dietary Ingredients (SIDI) Work Group has made available supplier qualification guidelines for dietary supplement manufacturers. This and other self-regulatory tools are available for download following free site registration.
SIDI created the supplier qualification guidelines to help manufacturers help themselves when it comes to supply chain integrity. Instead of just relying on a Certificate of Analysis (CoA), companies can use the new guidelines to establish their own methods for building relationships with the right partners. The document should be useful to all companies, regardless of their size, says SIDI.
The SIDI Work Group is made up of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA).
