What is GMP?
Good Manufacturing Practices or GMP is a system that consists of processes, procedures and documentation that ensures manufacturing products, such as food, cosmetics, and other goods, are consistently produced and controlled according to set quality standards. Overall, it protects both company and consumer from negative food safety events.
How did Spectrum Labs Become GMP Certified?
Our team spent hundreds of hours and many months detailing and organizing our processes, reorganizing the entire facility, repeatedly training employees, speaking with consultants, and improving our manufacturing processes. Once ready, a third-party certifying agency — the largest of its kind – sent an experienced auditor to our facility. After a thorough inspection of the entire facility, a lengthy report revealed that they determined us to comply with Good Manufacturing Practices.
Spectrum Labs is one of the only GMP Certified Hemp facilities in the Asheville and Western North Carolina area.
How can you inform your customers about this benefit?
One of the simplest ways is to place a GMP logo on your product label like the one below. Contact us for more questions about how and where to display this logo.
What are the 5 Main Components of Good Manufacturing Practice?
Every employee is required to adhere to strict GMP procedures and regulations. All employees must undergo up-to-date GMP training to fully understand their roles and responsibilities. Tracking employee performance helps improve productivity, efficiency and competence.
