At The Golden Monk we take the quality and cleanliness of our product very seriously. We use a climate controlled clean room to package our products. This is an essential step for maintaining cleanliness and reducing airborne particles and organisms from contaminating the product during the packaging phase. We are an audited member of the American Kratom Association cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) program.
We conduct a total of 6 lab tests per ton. These tests include: microbe screening (mold, yeast, bacteria and pathogens), heavy metals screening (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) and alkaloid screening (mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine). Batch numbers related to each series of tests are listed on our product packaging.
COVID-19 NOTE: We have implemented Standard Operational Procedures in place to combat the virus. Our facilities are regularly cleaned with chlorine bleach and barbicide solution. Product is stored in sealed airtight containers and staff wear clean masks and gloves when handling open product. No sick employee is permitted to work at any time and our employees are complying with strict social distancing procedures. We have limited our facility to staff 3 on-site members and no foreign entity is permitted to access our facility.
