At Carolina Ingredients, quality is taken seriously.

We are SQF Level 2 certified; have HACCP and allergen management programs in place; we use metal detection as a final scanning point before product leaves the building.  Our QA team monitors all blends for compliance to spec through final packaging.  Inbound ingredients are also screened and verified against spec sheets, COA and internal retains. Outbound products ship with COA documentation and all products created by us have at a minimum spec sheet, COA parameters, Allergen statement and SDS.  We also have the ability for the COA to indicate gluten free or compliance with Non GMO project.
