Development of a business can come in many forms, often for us as a manufacturing and private label supplier, it can be seen in machinery or product development to support both our own needs and those of our diverse pool of clients.
Recently however, it’s come in the form of a much more valuable resource, industry leading professionals. Two new hires are allowing us to move to the next level in terms of our capabilities and professionalism, allowing us to develop more bespoke and creative formulations.
This will be spearheaded with our new ‘Chief Compliance Officer’ David Wood, who brings 30+ years of manufacturing expertise, systems design as well as production planning with customers and an in-depth knowledge of the accreditations for food manufacturing businesses. Formerly of ADACT medical, David has worked for substantial companies both in and out of the CBD sector, giving him a foot in both camps for our white label clientele who want to blend across both areas seamlessly.
David has worked with market leading brands to bring formulas to market that have become staple items in many peoples health and wellness routines. David will be continuing that work within Apex White Label.
Within CBD, David will be supporting our work with Novel Foods, ensuring our processing and documentation is maintained and enhanced as our capabilities develop over the coming months and years. You can read more about our work around Novel Foods here.
