Committed to Collaboration, Science & Innovation

From our beginnings in 1996, TSI Group quickly developed a reputation for quality by sourcing high quality ingredients and conducting third-party testing in China prior to shipping them into the US. Shortly before the company was established, the ingredient industry was subject to the newly announced requirements of the Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Manufacturing companies were eager to comply and TSI’s commitment to standards early on gave its customers a significant advantage. 

By the time the modernization of cGMP requirements was put into place in 2004, our practices were well known and catapulted the company to new levels of awareness. By applying pharmaceutical grade standards, analytical testing, and cGMP quality assurance to highly sought-after ingredients, TSI quickly became a company that others wanted to work with and forge new partnerships with. 

Doing More For Our Customers

It was an exciting time to be part of one of the highest-growing industries in the health and wellness sector. That growth meant the company could evolve from an importer of raw materials to a fully integrated global manufacturing company. The leadership and staff’s shared values were based on a premise that for the wellness sector to grow in a direction that allows consumers to reach their full health potential, ingredient companies must do more than import ingredients. Everything happens with your end customer in mind.

Since TSI Group’s inception, the company has invested in a fully transparent supply chain, backed by evidence-based studies and carefully developed ingredients and technologies that provide customers with turn-key solutions.
