Seattle Gummy Gains China FDA Approval to Sell Nutraceuticals in ChinaBy Connie Wan, P.h.D | July 30th, 2018
SEATTLE, Washington − Seattle Gummy Company (SGC), a Seattle Washington based nutraceutical and pharmaceutical company, has gained Chinese government approval for its China subsidiary to sell nutraceuticals in China.
Unlike US, China regulates the commercialization of a nutraceutical product as a drug product. Any commercial entity that desires to commercialize nutraceutical products must pass a vigorous inspection and approval process by China FDA (CFDA). Headquartered in Beijing, SGC China has received multiple inspections by China FDA official before being granted the much-coveted nutraceutical permit.
The company now has opened stores in major eCommerce sites including WeChat and TaoBao expanding its product sales into the vast Chinese market. Both WeChat and TaoBao stores are currently carrying Mocca Shots, Energon Qube Power UP, Energon Qube Recover, Seattle Beauty Hair Skin Nail Multivitamins, Seattle Beauty Forever29, Seattle Beauty Golden Glow, and Functional Fruit Prenatal Multivitamin. All China purchases will be fulfilled from the company warehouse located in Ningbo Free Trade Zone, China.
In addition, SGC has also gained CFDA’s clearance on its Energon Qube product line. Such clearance allows the company to directly import its Energon Qube products into China and sell in Chinese brick-and-mortar stores.
“With us gaining the approval from the CFDA, we can now sell simultaneously through both the eCommerce channel as well as brick-and-mortar stores in China. We are currently the only foreign supplement company who can move our products from our U.S. factory to the shelves in Chinese stores without going through any intermediaries. We’ve essentially built an express highway for our functional gummy® products to quickly access the Chinese market and befits Chinese consumers. Gummy supplements market is playing the catch up in China. We are expecting an exponential growth in this market sector similar to the white-hot expansion witnessed by the US market in the recent years. With CFDA’s approval, we are not ready for a quick China expansion,” said Ms. Wei, the China Director for SGC.
