“Our entire team, and especially our quality and compliance team, worked extremely hard to achieve this certification,” said Kevin Collins, co-founder of Global Widget. “Our organic certification gives us the manufacturing capacity to answer demand from our contract manufacturing partners and continue to offer a wide selection of premium gummies to our customers.”
Global Widget’s organic gummy line is located at its recently renovated 50,000-square-foot gummy manufacturing facility, which also includes:
- Warehouse space for the storage of organic raw materials and ingredients

“Across a number of retail channels, gummies continue to be a top-selling delivery method,” said Collins. “We pride ourselves on doing everything in-house, from formulation, manufacturing and distribution to compliance, sales and marketing. Everything is under one roof, and that’s one of our biggest assets as we look to grow and explore new opportunities, formulas and trends that are emerging in the market.”
