Food Safety Compliance

FOOD SAFETY COMPLIANCE

Certification you can trust

Ensuring the highest possible standards for quality control and food safety drives everything we do.

We are dedicated to manufacturing products with uncompromising quality and sustainability, and we continually strive to improve our processes and safety systems by meeting and exceeding regulatory standards of the most rigorous certifying agencies in the U.S.

We invite you to peruse our growing list of certifications and credentials.

SQF Level 2 Certification

SQF is a rigorous food-safety management system that focuses on the verification and validation of stringent food-safety and quality systems throughout the food supply chain. What that means is that you can rely on us to provide you with safe, quality products each time you buy from us.

Kosher Certification

We understand that kosher-certified products are important to many of our customers. Our products are certified by Oregon Kosher, the premier kosher certification agency in the Pacific Northwest.

Good Manufacturing Practice

All of our procedures at Steviva Brands are fully compliant with the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Simply, this means you can trust that our products are safe, pure and effective.

Organic Certification

One of the ways we help people live healthier lives is by offering organic sweeteners. Organic ingredients not only lead to healthier foods and beverages, but also are better for our environment, ensuring a healthier planet for us all.  Steviva’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing headquarters enjoys organic certification through Oregon Tilth.

Testing for Steviva Brands products is generally classified into three categories:

  • Microbiologicals
  • Heavy metals

Microbiologicals

Steviva Brands requires microbiological testing and certificates of analysis from all of our suppliers for raw ingredients. Testing is done in either the U.S. or in the U.K., in government-regulated labs.

Our ingredients are tested for the following:

  • Total aerobic microbial count
  • Total combined yeast and mold count
  • Coliforms
  • E. coli
  • Salmonella

Certificates of Analysis (C of A) with test results are available upon request for all of our products.


Heavy metals

We test our products for arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury using independent U.S. laboratories. All of our products are within the safety guidelines stipulated by the American National Standards Institute/National Sanitation Foundation International Dietary Supplement Standard 173 (ANSI 173). The acceptable limits for daily intake are as follows:

  • Arsenic content shall not exceed 0.01 milligrams per daily dose (10 micrograms per day).

  • Lead content shall not exceed 0.02 mg/d (20 micrograms per day).
  • Mercury content shall not exceed 0.02 mg/d (20 micrograms per day).

Pesticides

Steviva Brands’ focus is on being a supplier of “good for you” products. We spot test for pesticides in third-party labs to ensure the integrity of the certification of our suppliers.


Commitment to excellence

All of our procedures at Steviva Brands are fully compliant with the industry standards and in accordance with the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA) and cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) for the dietary supplement industry as issued by the FDA.
