Business-savvy, reputable companies leave nothing to chance, especially when their products affect health and safety. Importers and manufacturers of Pharmaceuticals and Pesticides have a reputation, a bottom line and customers to protect.  They need to ensure that the products they import or manufacture are what they say they are.
