Bell Flavors & Fragrances Middletown Obtains ISO 22716 Re-Certification
Bell Flavors & Fragrances is excited to announce the re-certification of ISO 22716 for our manufacturing facility in Middletown, NY. This certification not only recertified the botanical manufacturing area but also includes liquid fragrance and spray dry fragrance. Bell received high marks with only two small non-conformances.
ISO 22716:2007 gives guidelines for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic ingredients. These guidelines cover the quality aspects of our products and are the basis of our quality management system for liquid fragrances, spray dry/plated fragrances and botanical extracts.
Crystal Avant, Manager, Quality Systems in Middletown says, “This auditing scheme was initially undertaken to comply with customer requirements. In previous years, Bell expanded the scope to include all fragrance products along with botanical products to ensure every aspect our manufacturing systems are covered by quality systems.”
Tim Cunningham, Vice President for the Middletown site says “Achieving this ISO re-certification with only a few minor non-conformances in conjunction with our SQF certification reinforces Bell’s commitment to providing only the best quality and service to our customers. Each year our quality systems have improved, and we expect this trend will continue in the future.”
In addition to the ISO 22716, Bell Middletown has obtained certification of the Safe Quality Food (SQF) 7.2 Level 3 to include butter flavor production and aroma chemical resale products.
