Organic & Quality Assurance at Indigo Herbs

 

The Quality and Production Team at Indigo Herbs

At Indigo Herbs we take quality seriously. We have been producing premium quality herbs & superfoods products since 2005. Many of our customers return to us time & time again as they have come to trust the excellent high quality products that we source & sell.

The Indigo Herbs team really appreciate the benefits of pure, premium quality pharmacopial grade herbs & superfoods, as many of us take these products ourselves. It is our personal passion that has lead us on to develop a comprehensive range of over 450 natural health product lines.

So we spend time researching & resourcing the best products. Being aware of the methods of manufacture that the herbs or foods have gone through is central to this.

The Indigo Herbs Quality Assurance scheme has been designed to ensure that our consumable products are of highest quality.

We are interested in

What Certification the product has

How it is packaged

Where the product is from

How it is produced

How it is stored to optimise freshness

How the nutritional content is maintained and preserved

When the product arrives to us

Our products inform clearly where the botanical material is from, and/or where it is manufactured.

Our products inform clearly how the botanical materials were produced & preserved where possible.

Our products inform clearly the shelf life and best before dates for the botanical material to remain fresh, potent & nutritionally stable.

Our products are packed & sealed in re-sealable gold foil or brown paper/foil air tight packaging for loose materials, and pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottles for liquids. This is to ensure optimum storage conditions for an extensive shelf life.
