We employ a unique end-to-end tracking system that manages all the data involved from seeds to final products, so that the entire process is traceable.
The tracking system consists of three main components: cultivation, production, and commercial. The cultivation component includes data on the farmer, land, planting conditions, growing conditions, harvest conditions and more (see below).
The granule production tracking component covers steps from purchasing raw material to finished products release, including purchasing, raw material testing, storage, processing, finished goods testing, storage, packaging, and more.
Samples of incoming raw herbs are kept and maintained for every batch of Treasure of the East herbs for a minimum of 8 years. Raw herb samples with high sugar content (such as Gou Qi Zi (Goji Berry)) are stored in temperature-controlled conditions.
In addition to compliance with many international standards, we meet all requirements of the US FDA and USDA, including the current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Herbs in our US facilities are tracked using a barcode scanning system. Based on the order number, we can identify the exact varieties and batches associated with each order. We offer Certificates of Analysis (COAs) with any order of herbs. To request a COA, please contact us with your barcode number.
