“We are quite honored to receive AHPA’s recognition,” said Rupa Das, BI’s Vice President of Global Quality and Compliance, who accepted the award on behalf of BI. “From the launch of Identilok species identification process in 1996, to the implementation of the organic steam sterilization in 2000, to visits to the growing and collecting regions for our products, BI‘s innovations have worked towards elevating the quality of the industry’s standards as a whole.
“These and several other innovations stem from BI’s core value to always do what’s right instead of what’s convenient. It’s very humbling to be honored for ‘doing what is right’.”
BI, a member of AHPA for over 20 years, was recognized for its sourcing expertise, intimate knowledge of the supply chain, innovative manufacturing techniques and superior quality standards, said the company in a release.
