Sabinsa founder Dr. Muhammed Majeed said in the press release: “Although we have a number of country-specific certifications, harmonized standards certification is important because we sell our ingredients throughout the world. And FSSC is appropriate, as our ingredients are increasingly used in functional food and beverage products, and in several countries herbal products are regulated as a class of foods.”
