In 2010, Synergy World Wide received the NSF Good Manufacturing Certification from NSF International, the Public Health and Safety Company™. A non-profit, non-governmental organization, the NSF is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education, and risk-management for public health and safety. As part of the certification process, Nature’s Sunshine’s and Synergy World Wide’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility underwent an extensive audit by NSF staff. NSF personnel examined Nature’s Sunshine’s production equipment, policies and procedures, and manufacturing processes. To maintain this certification, Nature’s Sunshine will undergo a yearly NSF audit that will help ensure that we remain at the forefront of the nutritional supplement industry.
What does this mean for Synergy WorldWide?
NSF is a leading, third-party auditor of companies dealing in the health and public safety sectors. For years, Nature’s Sunshine has claimed superior processes, procedures and documentation that have helped Synergy WorldWide ensure superior product quality. Now, an independent company has examined these facilities and validated such claims. This independent certification will:
• Give Synergy WorldWide a competitive advantage in the marketplace
• Increase our credibility, as NSF is recognized worldwide and in numerous industries.
• Increase consumer confidence that NSP is in full compliance with the new US FSA regulations and that we
are prepared for any FDA audit at any time.
Synergy WorldWide is listed on NSF’s website as certified for its Good Manufacturing Procedures.
