The new plant is run by VFS Labs, a vertically integrated company that farms and processes hemp. The company focuses on bringing high-quality bulk hemp extracts that are cGMP compliant, organic, and kosher.
“We have more than 35 years’ experience in upstream and downstream agribusinesses,” Jack Vollstedt, Founder, and President of VFS Labs said in a press release. “Ensuring that our customers have the highest quality cost-effective supply chain for premium hemp-derived ingredients serving nutraceutical, food and beverage, and pet foods industries.”
VFS controls every part of the supply chain from seed cultivation to final extraction. Their control over every aspect of the product allows them to ensure that their farms are sustainable and that all extracts and isolates follow cGMP guidelines.
“We believe that customized, turn-key support is the key to building and maintaining long, healthy, and profitable relationships,” says Everett Flikkema, General Manager of VFS Labs. “We offer a wide range of services to our customers, including extraction, distillation, THC-free processing, and isolation of key cannabinoids such as CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN.”
The company hopes to become a “preferred solution for large scale co-packers and hemp brands offering high-quality, consistent ingredients at the best prices.”
