QUALITY & COMPLIANCE

QUALITY

BY DESIGN

We have adopted the “Quality by Design” approach to ensure quality is built into the product by assuring each step of the process, from product development to shipping out, is verified by our trained Quality Assurance staff. We support our customers with any quality and compliance related questions even after the product is shipped out.

Our trained QA team ensures that each step of the manufacturing and packaging operations is verified, and appropriate documentation is completed before moving to the next step. 

We believe in best quality and always go above and beyond to provide the highest quality products and services to our customers for dietary supplement products. We strive to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations by delivering consistent, safe, and pure products with skills, hard work and sheer passion.

Our commitment is not limited to certifications. Every product we produce at SMK is developed very carefully by a team of highly qualified product development scientists. Each selected ingredient is of the very best quality for maximum nutrition and the most delicious product in the market, whether they are organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, or otherwise.

GMP NJ GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES

Additionally, we are certified for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) by New Jersey Department of Health, Consumer, Environmental and Occupational Health Service following a successful inspection.

ALLERGENS

We take consumer safety very seriously when it comes to allergenic ingredients, WADA banned substances, and pathogen testing in our facility. All allergenic ingredients are distinctly identified with color coded labels for each specific major food allergen as per Food Allergen Labeling And Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA).

 

Validated equipment cleaning, and cleaning verification swab sampling processes are employed after manufacturing a product containing any food allergen to ensure that allergen is not carried over to the next product. We are committed to not purchase any banned substances as listed by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency).

ENVIROMENTALL MONITORING PROGRAM

Additionally, to provide safe and pure products, we have established an excellent Environmental Monitoring (EM) program by employing the prerequisites, such as Air Quality Program, Water Quality Program, Preventive Maintenance Program (Internal & External), Calibration Program (Internal & External), Equipment & Facility Cleaning and Sanitization Program.

 

These programs are verified by using various air, water, and surface sampling and testing protocols. Our EM program ensures that all equipment and production areas are suitable for operations. We have qualified and employed some of the most advanced technologies for this purpose, such as SAP based ERP system, 3M food safety, Vaisala Data Loggers and ViewLinc system.

IN HOUSE QUALITY CONTROL LAB
