Quality control and certifications

As a company working in the health and well-being sector, the quality of our products and company processes is an indispensable value, to which we pay particular attention through a structured system of Quality Control and Assurance that governs all our activities at every level.


Our Quality Control system

PharmaNutra's Quality Assurance system is based on three fundamental principles:

INNOVATION: The protection of intellectual property, patents and raw materials is the key to our uniqueness.

SCIENTIFIC RIGOUR: Cutting-edge research and clinical trials constantly guide us in the development of new products and solutions.

SPEED OF DEVELOPMENT: Flexible interdisciplinary resources drive our development in a constantly changing world.

PharmaNutra S.p.A. is certified to SA 8000:2014 and UNI EN ISO 9001:2015.

The Group also holds the following product certifications:

  • Play Sure Doping Free, awarded by Doping Free S.A. and the No Doping Life association for checks carried out by Bureau Veritas Italia S.p.A.
  • CE Mark awarded by the ISS Notified Body for class IIA medical devices.

In the course of 2024, the Group aims to obtain further product certifications, including the “NSF Certified For Sport”, for the certification of doping-free products available on the US market, and vegetarian and vegan certification for products without ingredients of animal origin.


Quality is one of the fundamental pillars for all PharmaNutra Group’s companies. PharmaNutra obtained for the first time the ISO 9001 certification for the quality management system in 2007, Junia Pharma in 2012 and Alesco in 2018. The three companies have been certified 9001:2015 since 2018, maintaining ISO standards for the development and production of supplements and medical devices and complying with the management system standard.

The organization demonstrates its capability to regularly provide products that meet clients and law requirements. Furthermore, it aims to increase clients’ satisfaction, implementing an effective management system and promoting a process approach and risk-based thinking:

PharmaNutra and Junia Pharma are certified, on a voluntary basis, for the SA 8000 standard concerning the company’s Social Accountability (workplace quality). With this certification, PharmaNutra and Junia Pharma want to align their business goals with their ethical principles, knowing that social accountability represents an added value for the organization development.

What is the SA8000 standard?

The SA 8000 standard was born in 1997 as a voluntary standard for the social certification for the workplace quality and safety and to ensure the fundamental human rights for the employees. The adoption of SA8000 principles enhances the responsibility towards both internal and external stakeholders, operating in a transparency context regarding working conditions and employees’ safety and remuneration.

Why SA 8000?

It promotes a participatory business management model, in which the communication among leadership and employees is encouraged. In addition, it promotes a collaborative environment and supports the communication among the company and its external stakeholders in a transparency context.
