To tackle the infant formula crisis, producers can rely on Southern California supplement solutions contract manufacturer ProTab Laboratories ProTab Laboratories to blend custom premixes and produce and package infant formula with a rapid turnaround time, the company stated.

“ProTab is in the perfect position as a supplement solution manufacturer and packager to prioritize infant formula production with safety and scale to help replenish the supply in the market,” said Joanne Hsu, vice president of operations. “We are ready to produce safe, high-quality premixes with careful processing and top-quality standards at our facility for reassuring parents and babies that they will have access to quality and safe infant formula.”

Safety continues to be at the forefront of the crisis. ProTab has the capabilities of in-house analytical laboratory services for quality control validation, including analytical capabilities. The company is FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) registered with cGMP (current good manufacturing practice), FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act), and FSSC 22000 certified by NSF.

“ProTab can rapidly turn around the production of powder and premix for liquid infant formula at a large scale to bolster the supply of products with proper FDA-inspected nutritional values and safety,” said Hsu. “Our certifications are the gold standard of safety for reassuring our manufacture of food and supplement solutions, including infant formula premix solutions.”

“As a GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) certified producer and packager of supplement solutions, ProTab elevates food safety to the next level with our state-of-the-art facility, coupled with our quality control procedures and testing,” said Fariba Samadi, director of quality assurance and regulatory affairs. “Following stringent quality assurance and safety processes, we evaluate the quality of raw materials before manufacturing as well as the finished goods.”

Infant formula producers can leverage ProTab’s modern technology for precision blending needed for producing infant formula. Microencapsulation is offered to mask the undesirable characteristics of particular additives and formula ingredients. The technology is part of ProTab’s recent multimillion-dollar expansion to increase the footprint for blending and mixing premix solutions.

According to the company, ProTab can also help secure the best materials and ingredients if needed; as it keeps up with the newest production and delivery technologies and the latest regulatory requirements and considers modern formulation and consumer trends.

For specific needs in labeling and standards, ProTab Labs can manufacture products to the specification of USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) Organic, Non-GMO (genetically modified organism) Project Verified, Halal and Kosher. The company is registered with Health Canada as a foreign manufacturer site.

“We encourage infant formula manufacturers and brand holders to bring their formulas and packaging schematics to work with us,” said Hsu. “We are confident in helping everyone get through the bottleneck together and positioning ProTab as a long-term infant formula production partner,” said Hsu.
