TORONTO, May 29, 2013 /CNW/ - A new episode of Discovery Channel
Canada's hit series "How It's Made" gives Canadians an exclusive look
at the making of Jamieson's softgel vitamins, one of the world's most
popular supplement formats. The episode, which premiered on May 28,
highlights the success of Jamieson Laboratories, Canada's leading
supplement manufacturer. It features a behind-the-scenes look at the
company's 70,000-square-foot softgel manufacturing plant, International
Nutrient TechnologiesTM (INT), in Windsor, Ontario.
"We're thrilled that our loyal customers and all Canadians can see the
manufacturing standards and quality control that go into each Jamieson
softgel," says Vic Neufeld, Jamieson CEO and President. "We have a long
history with softgel technology since the inventor, R. P. Scherer, was
a company employee."
The television show explores the detailed processes that allow the
two-year-old INT plant to satisfy the complex design and production
requirements of softgel manufacturing. Among the highlights is an
inside look at INT's six encapsulation machines, seam melters and the
related drying and sorting areas, designed so that Jamieson supplements
not only meet pharmaceutical standards but exceed natural health
product regulations. The meticulous production flow at INT has been
carefully engineered to support good manufacturing practices (GMP), a
production and testing protocol that ensures premium natural health
"Our world-leading INT facility has been certified by regulatory
agencies in 40 countries to produce, package and ship products,"
Neufeld adds. "All Jamieson manufacturing, including our softgel
production, is subject to our proprietary 360 Pure quality-assurance
protocol that guarantees traceability, full potency and clinical
purity." Easy-to-swallow softgels are a consumer favourite, and the
natural softgel membrane is an excellent air and moisture barrier that
better protects each supplement's active ingredients.
"How It's Made" airs several times a week on Discovery Channel Canada.
