Primaria Nutrition, the nutrition division of GC Ingredients, has invested in a new facility in Atlanta, GA, to manufacture custom formulations in powder and liquid form for food, supplements, and value-added products.
The facility is designed for precise formulation and blending of nutritional and functional pre-blends. The new place features six suites with custom air handling, humidity control, and a variety of blending and packaging equipment. It is equipped to handle large orders but also able to accept low minimum order quantities.
“There has been a lot of consolidation in the premix industry. As a result, there is a need in our industry for a nimble provider that can offer quick turnarounds and low minimum order quantities on premixes, as well as provide excellent customer service and precision on large orders," said Robert Shapiro, vice president of business development for Primaria Nutrition. "Companies need to get new products to market fast. We are committed to helping these companies launch their food products quickly, safely, and cost-effectively,”
Primaria Nutrition offers ribbon blending, paddle mixing, and tumble mixing to accommodate any type of food product. Nutritional premix solutions include ready-to-drink and ready-to-mix drinks, performance/meal replacement bars, dairy products, breakfast cereals, bakery products, tortilla solutions, sweetener blends, meat and poultry blends, and supplements. In addition, Primaria Nutrition has proprietary custom food blends that include antimicrobial blends, baking powder blends, and flavor-masking agents. The manufacturer also offers a full range of effervescent products for a unique delivery system.
The new facility meets RCGS Global Standards for food safety and Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards for food safety and management of product quality.
Primaria Nutrition tightly controls nutritional formulation analytical and quality assurance by conducting testing in-house, including UPLC, ICP-MS, FTIR, and Mixolab testing for the rheological characterization. As a result, testing is timely, precise, and cost-effective. Primaria Nutrition's lab services ensure that products meet quality standards every time.
