SCD Probiotics Makes USDA BioPreferred List

Eight Probiotic Products Now Eligible For Preferred Federal Purchasing

KANSAS CITY, MO – July 26, 2012 – After a rigorous registration process, eight products produced by SCD Probiotics have been accepted into the USDA BioPreferred Catalog, an electronic catalog of biobased products that are eligible for preferred Federal government purchasing. The use of biobased products, or products that are wholly comprised of biological ingredients, is expected by the USDA to help reduce petroleum consumption and help better manage the carbon cycle thus reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.

The Federal and Federal contractor market represents billions of purchases annually, and Federal agencies and Federal contractors are required to give preference to biobased products within product categories identified by USDA.

ProBio Balance Original, ProBio Balance Plus, SCD ProBiotics Food, ProKlean All Purpose Kleaner, ProKlean Counter Guard, ProKlean Floor Guard, SCD Bio Ag, and SCD BioKlean were all registered as BioPreferred.

“Our all-natural cleaning and composting products provide a powerful, eco-friendly alternative to chemicals and we are thrilled to meet the strict regulations making us eligible for Federal purchases,” commented Matthew Wood, CEO.
