The new facility, with 165,000 square feet of storage and 30,000 square feet of refrigerated storage, has all the systems necessary to uphold the quality of FFL and organic-certified ingredients, according to the company. FFL certification endorses a solid dedication to social responsibility, environmental sustainability and ethical supply chain practices. The certification effort underscores Suanfarma’s commitment to making a positive impact on both people and the planet.

Suanfarma USA partners with suppliers who undergo a significant evaluation process to ensure they offer high-quality ingredients to the market, the company stated. “We are proudly increasing our organic, Fair For Life ingredients line, including ashwagandha extract, banaba leaf extract, organic cinnamon powder, melissa (lemon balm) extract, tart cherry powder, organic turmeric powder, organic ginger powder, and many others,” said Tammy Walton, business development manager for Suanfarma USA.

“We believe fair trade should apply to the entire supply chain,” Walton continued. “This requires ensuring everyone involved in the process is fairly treated, and that environmental considerations are paramount. Ultimately, this ensures Suanfarma USA can offer a great range of trusted organic ingredients. A transparent and ethical supply chain is vital to all stakeholders, and we are excited to continue making a positive and lasting impact on society and the world we share.”

Suanfarma USA’s main supplier provides comprehensive support to its farmers, from supplying cultivation materials to ensuring the dispatch of harvested produce after primary processing on the farm. According to the company, its field officers regularly visit the farms to supervise and provide technical and financial assistance as needed. It also upcycles solid herbal waste into vermicompost for use as manure by neighboring farms and gardens. The effluent water is thoroughly treated and used for gardening purposes. There are multiple dust collectors in all area operations to minimize pollution and enhance safety for their workers.
