Original Post:  I’m late with greetings for the start of the new year.  Not only did 2022 begin on January 1st, so did mandatory compliance with the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard.  We provided an overview in a previous newsletter and next month I will be presenting more details about the standard as part of a webinar sponsored by the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA).  While the webinar is directed to dietary supplement companies, it applies to food manufacturers as well and will cover topics relevant to quality systems, the Foreign Supplier Verification Program, tracking GMOs and the aforementioned bioengineered food disclosure standard.  There is no cost to take part in the webinar.

In the BEginning”… Dietary Supplements Supply Chain Starts with Ag webinar.
The February 10th 90-minute presentation will start at 10:30 MST.


Quality raw material begins with Good Agricultural Practices to support FSMA Preventive Controls. This webinar will focus on dietary supplement risks beginning with the dirt. Our subject matter experts will cover Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP), heavy metals and pesticides monitoring, organic processing requirements and common mistakes, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), and BE Labeling.

Topic: High quality botanical dietary supplements begin with high quality botanical raw materials.  This presentation will focus on Good Agricultural & Collection Practices (GACP), best practices in assessing and qualifying suppliers of botanical materials, and explore AHPA resources and guidance that can be useful in building solid long-lasting transparent supply chain relationships.

Topic: Organic processing requirements such as cleaning, sanitation and sanitizers along with covering allowed raw materials common to natural products / supplements, labels and best practices for maintaining compliance with QAI organic standards.

Topic: GMO’s what are they, who cares, and how do you test and monitor them. The presentation will include a discussion on DNA and pesticide testing.

Topic: The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard is a recent addition to the regulations affecting the business practices and documentation requirements food and dietary supplement companies must adhere to. This presentation will review the requirements of the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard and the resulting labeling requirements.


Whether you join me for the webinar or not, I hope 2022 is a great year for you and yours!
