Hong Kong-based TSI Group Co., Ltd. (TSI) recently announced the creation of a new botanical products growing and manufacturing platform located in Yancheng, Jiangsu Province, China.
The new venture is intended to elevate TSI’s manufacturing capabilities into a completely integrated “farm-to-product” growing and production platform that addresses today’s pressing market demands for authenticated botanical products produced in a transparent, custody secure, completely integrated supply chain.
According to TSI CEO Joe Zhou, “The first phase of our expanded operation is the acquisition of 1,000 acres of farmland dedicated exclusively for ginkgo tree cultivation. Ginkgo is a very strategic ingredient for TSI and with this acquisition we are able to extend our chain of custody controls up stream to the ginkgo trees and the farm they grow on.”
Located adjacent to TSI’s farm is a new, state-of-the art, cGMP (current good manufacturing practice) botanical extraction facility that is scheduled to open the summer of 2016. The facility significantly expands TSI’s botanical extraction production capacity and it is designed to operate in accordance with global food, dietary supplement and pharmaceutical cGMPs.
TSI will offer its ginkgo products under the brand GINKGO 24/6/5 and the product line will be marketed to global dietary supplement, food and Chinese pharmaceutical manufacturing companies where TSI holds a pharmaceutical license.
“I am thrilled to announce our totally transparent and expanded supply chain capabilities,” Zhou added. “This provides us with a distinct point of differentiation at a critical time when our customers are pressing us for more and more assurances every day.”
TSI plans to expand the new production platform with additional botanical product offerings, all with the same level of transparency and assurances that support the Ginkgo 24/6/5 product line.
