Upstate Elevator Supply Co., a company that makes ingestible, beverage, pet, and topical products, opened its new CBD-focused manufacturing facility in Burlington, Vermont. The facility is fully compliant with Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations.
According to company officials, the team worked with the Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center on the buildout to perfect quality control systems and to ensure the facility adheres to all food safety requirements set forth by the State of Vermont.
"We hold ourselves to the highest standards for responsible business practices and have made significant investment into our processes and manufacturing facilities to reflect that," said Dylan Raap, founder and CEO of Upstate Elevator Supply Co. "We like to say that our commitment to the safety, quality, and purity of our products is characteristic of the great state of Vermont, where we're from."
"We are encouraged that the Department of Health and the Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets have developed policies to regulate hemp derived food and supplements in Vermont," said Brooke Jenkins JD, Upstate's COO. "We will continue to advocate for federal regulation to provide much-needed oversight to the industry, and to protect consumers from unlicensed brands producing low quality CBD products."
The company announced it has developed the first USDA Certified Organic Full Spectrum CBD Capsules in the United States. Created with 100% organic ingredients and processing methods, the innovative capsules are not only fully compliant with USDA Organic requirements, but also engineered for maximum bioavailability.
