RFI Expands Colorado Facility, Enhances Services

December 6, 2012

The expanded facility also boasts RFI’s new proprietary extraction equipment, which it calls Dynamic Dual Motion extraction (DDM).

Ingredients supplier RFI (Blauvelt, NY), whose product line includes the Chocamine cocoa-based branded ingredient, has expanded its Loveland, CO, manufacturing facility. In addition to the facility’s capabilities for liquid extraction, fermentation, drying, and blending, the site now offers encapsulation of two-piece hard shell capsules, as well as powder filling and bottling. The facility is certified organic and kosher, and NSF certified for dietary supplement GMPs.

The expanded facility also boasts RFI’s new proprietary extraction equipment, which it calls Dynamic Dual Motion extraction (DDM). The firm says this technology creates full-flavored, fresh liquid extracts. The firm describes DDM as a “unique, counter-current extraction system that produces highly concentrated flavors, concentrate, and botanical extracts.” The process uses minimal solvents and eliminates the need for further thermal concentration, which the company says normally ruins essential top notes or degrades important phytochemicals.

“Many years of experience making liquid extracts has provided our executive management team of Marty Wilsey and Paul Altaffer insight to design and develop a unique and cost-effective extraction system that produces top-quality liquid extracts,” said RFI president and CEO Jeff Wuagneux, in a press release. “In addition, with encapsulation and bottling capabilities, we are now able to control an entire process, from concept ideation to off-the-shelf packaging. Utilizing our turnkey manufacturing can save our customers both cost and time.”
