Our vision of quality: a comprehensive approach
Our commitment to full traceability
Pre-production: a network of qualified suppliers
Our strict quality standards are applied starting from the selection of raw materials. Our suppliers are evaluated and approved in accordance with the most stringent requirements:
- We conduct regular audits

- Our suppliers comply with good agricultural and collection (GACP) and manufacturing (GMP) practices along with our sustainable development principles
Post-production: a universal quality system implemented across all sites
At Naturex, quality depends on each player’s commitment to our global quality policy.
Dedicated teams at each site monitor the implementation and performance of quality systems.
For each market (food, health, and personal care), we operate a quality control system based on recognized standards and in compliance with good manufacturing practices (GMP).

These complete product records are established and reviewed by a team of dedicated experts.
Serving our customers through regulatory support
We continuously monitor the regulatory context in order to maintain compliance for all of our products.
Naturex assists its customers from various markets in the use of natural products.
Specific case studies may be carried out according to the intended use and target country.
As actively involved players in regulatory affairs, we participate in working groups focused on the development or revision of regulations or consumer guidelines.
This proactive approach allows us to contribute to the development and recognition of natural products.
600,000 analyses per year
At each of our industrial sites, our quality control laboratories test raw materials, works in process, and finished products.
Teams at each site carry out tests using the most widely recognized analytical tools in the industry (HPLC, HPLC-MS, GC, GC-MS, ICP, ICP-MS, PPSL, HPTLC, spectroscopy, FTIR).
A central laboratory develops and approves new analysis methods for implementation at each of the production sites.
