In tune with growing consumer sentiment for boosting immunity with food and dietary supplements, ACG’s efforts to bring healthy, safe, simplified and transparent labelled products to the market achieved an important milestone recently, when they reportedly became the world’s first capsules to receive a certification of compliance from the Clean Label Project for its ACGcapsTM H+ capsules. Selwyn Noronha, CEO, ACG Capsules elaborates on the significance of this accreditation and on the company’s strategy to emerge as a trendsetter in the post-COVID-19 era
What is the significance of this certification of compliance from Clean Label Project for ACGcapsTM H+?
ACG Capsules is the world’s first and only capsule manufacturer to have a certified ‘Clean Label’ product. The certificate received for ACGcapsTM H+ is proof of a pure, simple, safe, healthy, contaminant-free product. The certifying body – Clean Label Project (CLP) is known to test and only then certify the products as Clean label. Their testing is renowned for being strict and comprehensive, covering over 400 industrial and environmental contaminants, in addition to the food safety requirements laid out by the USFDA. The test results are evaluated against ‘Prop 65’ aimed to protect products from contaminants known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

We are evaluating our products to see if they comply with the requirements of CLP as it is ACG’s endeavour to bring healthy, safe, simplified and transparent labelled products to the market.
