The plant based ingredient market is tracking globally as one of the fastest growing economies of all time. Following sweeping reform after the US Farm Bill of 2018 effectively legalized the production of Industrial Hemp, and most recent advancements in the U.S. House of Representatives and United Nations, some estimate more than 20 million kilograms of plant material will be cultivated during the 2020 - 2021 Harvests.
In order to meet the expected global supply chain requirements of Tomorrow’s leading Brands, company’s, entrepreneurs and speculators are rushing to build compliant capabilities to enable consistent and routine plant material extraction productization at scale. First of a kind formulations and technology, unproven timelines, understaffed teams and under resourced projects are all moving forward. Given uncertain, and at times contradictory FDA and/or ICH guidance on regulation these uninformed activities carry great risk.
Not all oils and extracts are created equally. While final product profiles may be similar, the methods, protocols, standards and assurances of conformity implemented, in combination with the operation's environmental controls will determine the final quality and market viability of the produced ingredients.
