— ISO 22000:2005 Certification
In 2007, Amino Up was Judged ISO 22000:2005 compliant and certified. ISO 22000 (Food Safety Management System) is the international standard for production and distribution, based on the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system.
— GMP for Dietary Supplements
Amino Up is certified with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) from the Japan Health and Nutrition Food Association (incorporated foundation).
There are three main objectives in GMP:
- To prevent human error during the manufacturing processes
- To prevent the contamination and degradation of products
- To aim for homogenization of every product
We achieve the three objectives mentioned above by creating appropriate frameworks implementing operational management from the receipt of raw materials, to the distribution of the final product. Our framework covers both ‘software’ systems, such as quality analysis and quality control, and ‘hardware’ systems, such as the utilization of appropriate buildings, facilities, culturing tanks, machines, and so on. This framework allows us to make sure that all products we manufacture are always of the highest possible quality.
