Canadian manufacturer of soft gel fish oil capsules is awarded
certificate from food safety agency.

Accucaps Industries has been granted a Canadian Food Inspection Agency Certificate of Registration allowing it to manufacture softgel fish oil capsules for sale in Canada and for export.

The certification follows an intensive review of operations and processing standards, which company president Gordon Moore said "confirms Accucaps'international reputation for precision manufacturing"​.

Accucaps​ manufactures softgel capsules for health and nutritional, OTC and Rx products, and is licensed by Health Canada's Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing.

The certification includes government approval of a detailed Quality Management Programme covering every aspect of the company's products and manufacturing processes, and a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) plan to ensure that products and processes reduce or eliminate potential health hazards.

The new certification will allow Accucaps customers to source a variety of fish-based products in user-friendly softgel capsule format. Softgel capsules provide excellent levels of bio-availability and effectively address the fish oil category's prime consumer concern of odour masking.

It also allows Accucaps to receive export certificates for products designated for international markets. The company said that since Canada's standards were among the world's most rigid, this would allow it to export to almost every international market.
