Ribus, a supplier of ingredients for the food, beverage, pet, and dietary supplement industries, has opened a new facility in Sparks, NV, dedicated to producing clean-label ingredients, including excipients. The company says this is its first solely owned and operated production facility. Previously located in St. Louis, the company’s headquarters are now based in Sparks, NV.

The new, 15,000-sq-ft plant is organic and kosher certified, with pending certifications for Non-GMO, gluten-free, halal, and SQF. “Having our own plant gives us increased capacity and control over making changes that are needed in the marketplace,” said Ribus Co-Founder and President Steve Peirce in a press release. “Some of these changes may include different package sizes, different particle sizes, and new, innovative ingredients.”

The company said it invested in a new production facility because of the increased demand it is seeing for clean-label ingredients, including its Nu-Flow and other excipients. Nu-Flow, made from rice hulls, can be used to replace synthetic and other anticaking agents such as silicone dioxide and tri-calcium phosphate (or talc). Peirce said the new facility will allow more than a 300% increase in production capacity.
