RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CALIFORNIA – BI, a global full-service manufacturer of plant-based ingredients, marks 2018 as its 40th “ruby” anniversary. In celebration of their milestone achievement, BI plans to showcase three unique “ruby” colored beverages; one featuring apple cider vinegar in a lemonade mix, lentil protein concentrate in a red velvet shake, and another featuring guayusa for energy, along with three functional popcorn mixes at the SupplySide West 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada November 6-10, 2018. BI invites their customers and SSW attendees to join the team in celebrating 40 years of business “rooted in trust”.
BI’s Vice President of Global Quality and Compliance, Rupa Das, will also present at this year’s SupplySide West as part of a panel, “Seed-to-Shelf Roundtable: Finding the Sweet Spot Among Manufacturers, Testing Labs & Supply Chain”. The workshop will take place on Friday, November 9th at 9-11 AM at the Lower Level, North Convention Center. The focus will be on the impact of cGMPs and FSMA requirements, as well as building effective relationships among supply chain, testing labs and manufacturers.
Quality and safety have been a pivotal part of BI’s success over the past 40 years. “I believe that our success and longevity in the natural products industry is the result of our concentrated focus on providing clean and high quality ingredients, as well as the advanced capabilities of our manufacturing system,” said Randy Kreienbrink, Vice President of Marketing for BI. “Transparency isn’t just a motto for BI- it’s very much a part of the way we conduct business. We offer over 400 ingredients that have been determined as safe for use in dietary supplements and food and beverages. Keeping the trust of our customers is truly at the heart of our business.”
