Sirio Pharma and Best Formulations Announce U.S. Gummy Manufacturing Capabilities

October 17, 2023 – City of Industry, CA: Sirio Pharma Co., Ltd. (Sirio), a leading global CDMO, is pleased to announce the addition of new gummy manufacturing capabilities at its Best Formulations site, the company’s manufacturing facility in the United States. Through the seamless integration of Best Formulations into Sirio’s global operations, the CDMO is now able to offer customers localized manufacturing capabilities across three continents.

Best Formulations is on track to achieve full operational readiness by the end of October 2023. The new gummy capabilities include a dedicated R&D lab, an automated starch-free production line, and bottle packaging solutions.

The state-of-the-art automated starch-free gummy line can produce a variety of gummies, including gelatin-based, pectin-based, and gelatin-pectin combinations.

The onsite R&D lab features pilot-scale equipment, including a gummy depositor that can be seamlessly scaled up into the production line. This utilization of pilot-scale equipment provides the ability to produce samples for evaluation on equipment that closely mirrors the production equipment, helping expedite time to market.

Best Formulations will focus on delivering exceptional texture, flavors, and colors. The focus will further extend to developing sugar-free and plant-based options. The company’s experienced team of scientists will be able to support customers from concept development to commercialization.

The site will also offer turnkey bottle packaging solutions, with the aim of providing flexible and customized packaging options that align with the specific preferences of our customers.

“We are thrilled to introduce our advanced gummy manufacturing capabilities,” said Edward Shneyvas, Head of R&D of Americas at Sirio Pharma & Chief Scientific Officer at Best Formulations. “With our expertise in delivering tailored solutions, we remain committed to driving innovation and delighting our customers.”
