At Novel, we've always held our ingredients to a higher authority. That's why a key member of our safety and compliance team is a veteran auditor who has obtained more than 30 drug master files (DMFs). The DMF, which is used by the pharmaceutical industry, requires a much higher level of scrutiny than food and nutritional supplements. But it's the quality standard that Novel ingredients aspire to. So we work with our offshore suppliers to continuously improve their manufacturing practices and quality controls. Because when raw materials can pass an audit as rigorous as the DMF, you know the quality is exceptional.
