Manufacturing & Distribution
Rapid Nutrition contracts its manufacturing using several GMP approved manufacturing facilities. GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations which are guidelines set by regulatory agencies in the relevant country that control authorization and licensing for the production and sale of food, beverages and active pharmaceutical products.
The manufacturing facilities each have specific accreditation in their region to produce our products. Currently the Group uses five contract manufacturers. Three are located in the United States in California, Florida and Texas and two in Australia (in Queensland and New South Wales).
Distribution and sale of our products are regulated by the applicable regulatory body in each country. We have established major distribution relationships in three separate regions worldwide and are now distributing to the U.K, Ireland, Australia, U.S, China, Singapore, Korea, and Ghana with completed product registrations and necessary approvals with regulatory bodies in Czech Republic, Turkey, Korea and Thailand already in place.
