SHELBYVILLE, Ky., Feb. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmco, by Greenfield Global, today announced it is expanding the availability of its popular Kosher Certified herbal extraction solvent, sold as CDA 12A-1, to all regions in Canada and the United States. The product is a 200-proof grain denatured alcohol made with 4.76 percent high purity n-heptane that is exempt from the federal excise tax and does not require special permits to ship. The herbal extraction solvent is produced at the company's dedicated production facility in Shelbyville, Kentucky, USA.
"We are thrilled to make this product commercially available to extractors anywhere in Canada and the United States," said Frank Richards, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Specialty Chemicals and Ingredients. "Pharmco's advantage is that we have both the capacity and supply chain resources needed to ship anywhere in North America quickly and efficiently. As a dedicated manufacturer, we can offer our customers high-quality products with flexible and timely customer support that is unlike anyone else in the industry."
The company's carefully controlled supply chain includes centralized production in Shelbyville, Kentucky, with more than a dozen strategically located warehouses and distribution centers across the United States and Canada.
"Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to get the extraction solvents and related products they need for their operations," said Steve DiBenedetto, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations. "From start-ups to some of the world's biggest brands, our products can meet the highest quality and regulatory standards, including product purity, reliable supply, and regulations such as the federal excise tax, Food Grade Requirements, and Kosher certification."
This is the latest in a series of key investments made by Greenfield Global in its US manufacturing infrastructure, supply chain, personnel and support systems to fill customer demand. In December 2018, the company announced increased production capacity for high-purity extraction solvents at its manufacturing and packaging facility in Shelbyville.
Under the Pharmco brand, Greenfield produces and offers a range of products used in herbal extraction, including pure ethanol, denatured ethanol blends, high-purity solvents, Organic and Non-Organic MCT oil, and chiller fluids. Custom alcohol and solvent blends based on application needs and customer formulations are also available. All of Pharmco's products are fully tested in house prior to shipping to ensure the highest quality and purity standards. Pharmco also has dedicated sales staff and customer support to help navigate regulatory standards, permits, and taxation – including federal excise tax, and will highlight these issues and the broad range of products this month at the Central US Help Growers Conference & Expo in Rochester, MN (February 25 – 26) and the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association Annual Conference in Bowling Green, KY (February 28.)
