A virtual tour of the application of the guide in a food supplement facility 10 December 2014 Quality ProcessAchievement of 2 main goalsenables SAFE Doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL Deliver promise FUNDAMENTALS: = What is needed to develop and sell quality 1. Manufacturing: appropriate & validated 2. Scientific knowledge 3. Regulatory/legal knowledge 4. Being able to identify precisely consumer need = For a FS, QUALITY means it is SAFE & TRUTHFUL

12 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Step 1 FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals

13 Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea SAFE doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL deliver promise Safe ingredients Assessed physiological effects FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals Target Product Profile

14 Achievement of 2 main goals Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea Theoretical formula -Ingredients -Form of intake -Labelling Step 3 SAFE doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL deliver promise Safe ingredients Assessed physiological effects Legality of ingredients Goals: offering a product providing highest safety & efficiency criteria Formula provides efficient dosages FUNDAMENTALS Quality Processenables Product Development File

15 Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea Step 4 Step 3 Theoretical formula -Ingredients -Form of intake -Labelling Final formula  Laboratory essays  Pilot production SAFE doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL deliver promise Safe ingredients Assessed physiological effects Formula provides efficient dosages Legality of ingredients Goals: offering a product providing highest safety & efficiency criteria Stability of formula is tested Active ingredients must be present until end of shelf life FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals

16 SAFE doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL deliver promise Safe ingredients Assessed physiological effects Formula provides efficient dosages Legality of ingredients Goals: offering a product providing highest safety & efficiency criteria Stability of formula is tested Active ingredients must be present until end of shelf life Interaction with competent authority Other EU countries: ie. Italy FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea Step 5 Step 3 Theoretical formula -Ingredients -Form of intake -Labelling Final formula  Laboratory essays  Pilot production Step 4  Validated formula/form Interaction with Competent authority Either notification/ authorization or information Authorities can verify: -legality -dosage of ingredients -Claims Authorities verify correspondence between ingredients & claims (notification) BE : Online notification via FOODSUP

17 Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea Step 6 Step 3 Theoretical formula -Ingredients -Form of intake -Labelling Final formula  Laboratory essays  Pilot production Step 4  Validated formula/form Interaction with competent authority Either notification/ authorization or information Step 5 Marketable product Consumer Need FULFILLED SAFE doesn’t harm TRUTHFUL deliver promise Safe ingredients Assessed physiological effects Formula provides efficient dosages Legality of ingredients Goals: offering a product providing highest safety & efficiency criteria Stability of formula is tested Active ingredients must be present until end of shelf life Authorities can verify: legality dosage of ingredients Claims Authorities verify: correspondence between ingredients & claims (notification) Production samples are reviewed in real time Consumer has a guarantee of stability/ effect during product’s lifetime FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals

18 Step 1 Step 2 IDENTIFIED Consumer Need Product Idea Step 8 Step 3 Theoretical formula -Ingredients -Form of intake -Labelling Final formula  Laboratory essays  Pilot production Step 4  Validated formula/form Interaction with competent authority Either notification/ authorization or information Step 5 Marketable product Step 6 Consumer Need FULFILLED Step 7 Post Marketing Surveillance FUNDAMENTALS Quality ProcessenablesAchievement of 2 main goals ie. Complain from a client : issue with a broken blister  Input in our customer complaint system
