RIBUS UNVEILS CLEAN LABEL ALLIANCE ALONG WITH BIOGRUND, BOSCH, LONZA AND NATOLI AT SUPPLYSIDE WEST KEEP IT CLEAN EVENT
St. Louis, Mo. (Nov. 16, 2018) – RIBUS Inc. hosted its annual SupplySide West event in Las Vegas on Friday, Nov. 9, unveiling its latest excipient Nu-BIND and officially launching the Clean Label Alliance along with companies, BIOGRUND, Bosch Packaging Technology, Lonza Inc., and Natoli Engineering Co. More than 100 people from the dietary supplement industry attended the event.
“We want Clean Label Alliance to be the go-to turnkey solution for any challenges facing operators, formulators or producers who want to make clean label supplements,” said Steve Peirce, president of RIBUS. “The companies we have aligned with are the most knowledgeable leaders in the dietary supplement industry that can provide support and problem-solving solutions.”
Peirce says the purpose of the Clean Label Alliance is to offer free counsel and technical support to dietary supplement companies by providing top-of-the-line resources and solutions to efficiently produce clean label supplements.

During the “Keep It Clean” event guests enjoyed a full family-style breakfast with mocktails, and a clean comedy routine by “Saturday Night Live” alumni, LaKendra Tookes. Guests were greeted at the event by RIBUS’ latest clean label excipient, Nu-BIND, which was brought to life by real Las Vegas supporting actors who “bonded” with guests and escorted them to their seats, while providing the excipient’s list of attributes.
“I’ve always said that excipients are the supporting actors when it comes to supplements; if they are not working for you then it’s impossible to produce a clean label supplement,” says Peirce. “It was fun to bring our Nu-BIND excipient to life at the event to underscore how important they are in the production of a supplement.”
Nu-BIND is designed to act as a natural alternative to synthetic and plasticized binders, such as Hydroxy-propyl-Cellulose (HPC) and Polyvinyl-pyrrolidone (PVP), making the production of certified organic tablets and capsules possible. The makeup of Nu-BIND includes guar gum, gum arabic, agave fiber, rice hulls and agave syrup to work as a binder and is available as conventional or organic.
During the event, RIBUS awarded Gemini Pharmaceuticals with an Early Adopter Award, for producing more than a thousand SKUs using RIBUS’ clean label excipients. Advanced Orthomolecular Research was also recognized for becoming the latest member of the RIBUS Certified Contract Manufacturer Program.
