Sabinsa Corporation is celebrating 20 years of supplying science backed, high-quality herbal extracts, cosmeceuticals, minerals and specialty fine chemicals to the natural products industry by inviting SupplySide West attendees to join them for cake and champagne on Thursday, October 23 and Friday, October 24 from 12 – 2 p.m. at Sabinsa’s booth #21051. Sabinsa was founded in 1988 by Muhammed Majeed, Ph.D. and now currently has offices and manufacturing facilities in seven countries.

“Much of Sabinsa’s success over the past 20 years can be attributed to our commitment to bringing innova- tive, efficacious ingredients to market, and doing so with the most strict attention to quality and purity stan- dards,” stated Majeed. “We recently expanded our offerings to include full-service contract manufacturing capabilities to meet the growing needs of our clients and will continue to maintain our dedication to having quality systems, facilities and staff in place to provide outstanding service for the next 20 years.”
