“Quality is never by accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
William A. Foster, quoted in “Igniting the Spirit at Work: Daily Reflections”
Our Company firmly believes in the above philosophy and has steadfastly adhered to it both in letter and spirit.
Quality of Medicinal Plants:
Quality of raw medicinal plants is very critical as it would have a direct bearing on the finished medicines. Although Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), Good Harvesting Practices (GHP) and Good Storage Practices (GSP) are voluntary and non-discriminatory to the growers, we follow Vendor Audit Process (VAP) to source our plants from internationally reputed growers who steadfastly adhere to these Practices. Adopting these practices ensure good quality raw medicinal plants.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP):
In simple terms, “GMP” is a set of guidelines designed to ensure that the medicines are consistent, safe and of the highest quality.
But our quest for finest quality doesn’t end with GMP. Allen Homoeopathy has differentiated itself from others in the homoeopathic industry by consistently manufacturing higher quality products than demanded by industry regulations. That consistent quality is the result of Allen’s unique quality assurance program.
Total Quality Management:
The TQM program meets and exceeds Homoeopathic Pharmacopeia of India (HPI) standards and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Our state-of-the- art Laboratory boasts of all the modern testing equipment necessary for development of in-house standardisation.
What is our Total Quality Management (TQM) Program?
The TQM program includes the following QA processes:
- Review and approval of raw material suppliers via Vendor Audit Process.
- Incoming raw ingredient verification: Every ingredient that is received is quarantined until verified by our in-house Lab for identity, physical characteristics, activity, purity and safety. Our Lab facilities can also detect changes in ingredients from the same suppliers. This becomes particularly important for liquid medicines where solubility and taste are important issues.
- Complete lot/batch control and traceability from raw materials to finished goods.
- Laboratory testing of work-in-progress and finished goods.
- Pre-shipment audits and nal inspections of all finished goods.
- TQM is not only about production but also about responsible waste disposal. Our procedures also cover the discharge of waste water and outdated ingredients to ensure the environment is respected.
