GMP Food Ingredients

Unlike many custom manufacturers, Organic Technologies is skilled at producing food ingredients to the highest standards of quality and food safety. If you have an urgent need for a food ingredient or nutritional supplement that is too large or too small for your processing plant capabilities, Organic Technologies can help!

Custom manufacturing for food ingredients and nutritional supplements is conducted under Food and DSHEA GMPs. We conduct HACCP analysis for each food product to ensure that potential food safety hazards are eliminated. We have manufactured products under Kosher certification with all major Kosher certification agencies — Organized Kasruth Labs (Circle K), Orthodox Union (OU), Star-K and others.

What is GMP?

Good Manufacturing Practices (or GMP) are a series of quality principles that govern the production of foods, pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements. GMPs are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under 21CFR110 for Food Ingredients and 21CFR111 for Dietary Supplements. The main elements of a manufacturing process conducted under GMPs are:

  • Defined and documented manufacturing processes
  • Adherence to raw material and finished product specifications
  • Clear and documented instructions for manufacturing
  • Recordkeeping to ensure raw material and product traceability
  • Demonstrated plan for quickly recalling any batch of product in case of a food safety issue after manufacture

Another important aspect of our GMP program is the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) program. Instead of measuring product characteristics after a product is produced, a HACCP plan is preventative in nature. It assesses the possibility of any physical, chemical, or biological hazards that could affect the food safety of the finished product at every step of the manufacturing process, including raw materials, packaging and distribution. The HACCP analysis process identifies “Critical Control Points” or checkpoints where certain conditions (e.g. impurity levels, temperature, pressure) must be met in order for the product to meet food safety requirements and continue through the manufacturing process.
