Parry Nutraceuticals’ microalgae facility has received approval from the US FDA.

India-based Murugappa Group’s nutrition firm EID Parry has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) for its facility in Tamil Nadu for organic microalgae cultivation and processing.

The microalgae facility is part of the Parry Nutraceuticals division and is located in Oonaiyur, Pudukottai district. It is spread over 130 acres and has 600 tons per annum capacity.

In a BSE filing, the company said the organic facility has received the Establishment Inspection Report from the US FDA following an inspection of the facility in July 2016.

Parry Nutraceuticals Business Head Muthu Murugappan said that the company is stepping up its new product development efforts to meet increasing customer demand for value-added products based on microalgae. “This approval will further enhance our reputation as a leader in microalgal technology,” he said.
