TruTag Technologies’ Manufacturing Plant Achieves Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Compliance

Nano-porous silica manufacturing facility is the largest in the world and will produce TruTag® microtags for global pharmaceutical customers

KAPOLEI, HAWAII ─ August 2, 2016 — TruTag Technologies, Inc., a leader in product authentication, brand security, and data intelligence solutions today announced that its silica microtag manufacturing facility in Kapolei, Hawaii has achieved compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for the manufacturing of TruTag® microtags (“TruTags®”) to protect pharmaceutical and food products for global manufacturers and brand owners.

TruTags are covert, edible, and encrypted optical memory devices made from pure silicon dioxide (silica), a material that is considered “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. TruTags enable the digitization of medicine and food so that customers can identify, authenticate, and track products throughout the global supply chain. TruTags serve as a digital cookie for analog products.

The TruTag security platform helps pharmaceutical and food companies protect their products, guard against channel diversion and counterfeits, enhance consumer trust, retrieve valuable information real time, and maintain the integrity of their brands with cost-effective integrated data intelligence. When TruTags are applied to products, manufacturers are able to assess the provenance of each item and collect information such as manufacturing site, dosage, authorized distribution channel, lot numbers, and other valuable information including the entire drug package insert or related safety information, if needed.

TruTag’s manufacturing facility is the world’s largest cGMP nano-porous silica production plant and houses the company’s application engineering and advanced materials research center. TruTag’s cGMP facility features the most advanced manufacturing equipment in the industry with fully automated and robotics-enhanced production lines.
