Flavour Crafters' Facilities
Flavour Crafters eliquids are produced in a leading-class, sterile manufacturing facility. Our team takes great pride in the areas that we have constructed for our eliquid production tasks. The labs have been constructed to promote a ‘closed-box’ environment which prevents foreign objects and / or contaminants from entering the area. The environment’s cleanliness is further ensured by the use of required lab coats, medical-grade scrub pants, hair nets, antimicrobial face masks, nitrile gloves, eye protection, and shoe covers. An entry station is provided to ensure equipment is in place prior to entering the manufacturing space.
We have furnished our production lab with over 30ft of food-grade stainless steel workspace. Chrome wire shelving is used for storing base ingredients to ease in the cleaning process that occurs daily. Ergonomic, adjustable lab stools are utilized by the production staff to ensure comfort and safety in their day-to-day tasks. A hospital-grade air filtration unit runs 24/7 to ensure the internal air quality is maintained to the highest standards. A dedicated sterilization station ensures that each container is thoroughly sterilized in preparation for use in manufacturing.
We maintain a large inventory of raw ingredients and pre-mixed eliquids to ensure our manufacturing abilities can proceed uninhibited. All manufacturing activities are documented and recorded in a database to ease with quality assurance procedures and traceability of ingredients used. Eliquid and flavouring manufacturing measurements are completed with the use of labgrade scales that measure within an accuracy of 0.01g. All eliquids are labelled with individual batch ID’s and expiration dates. Expiration dates are two years from the date of production - this time frame is a result of nicotine’s shelf-life. Raw flavouring molecules that are used in the development of our popular tobacco line are stored in a locked fire-proof chemical storage cabinet. This cabinet is only accessible by authorized members of the production team.
Eliquids and concentrated flavourings are produced in large batches to ensure that they are allowed enough time to steep before being processed and shipped. While a majority of our eliquids are produced under this model, custom eliquids and some of our more popular flavours will require a short amount of steeping time.
By referring to the batch code, you are able to verify the date of production using the last 6 digits. An example would be NCT12121814 – Navy Cut Tobacco 12mg which was produced on December 18th, 2014. Eliquids require anywhere between 5-10 days (individual flavours can vary) before the steeping process has occurred and the eliquid will have the taste you’re familiar with. The colouring and consistency of the eliquid will adjust during this time as well.
Warehouse and Distribution Centre
A large inventory of finished product is required to ensure that orders are processed in a timely manner. We have constructed chrome wire shelving that houses over 800 individual bins for each of our bottle size, flavour, and strength combinations. Bins are organized in a manner that ensures order processing is able to be completed with as much accuracy and efficiency as possible.
To further ensure accuracy and efficiency, individual workstations are in place for each member of the shipping team. These workstations are fully stocked with shipping bags, boxes, and a large inventory of all other required supplies. Orders are processed and shipped daily to ensure our 2-3 day shipping timeframes are maintained.
