In addition to ample lab space, Mother Murphy's keeps their facilities well equipped so that the focus can be on successful flavor production.

Our Facility

We’ve invested heavily in research and development, and the technology needed to replicate flavors molecule by molecule. We take great care of our team and of our labs so that they are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to achieve each of our customers' needs.

Quality Control

Our quality control (QC) lab has the capability to store up to 12 months of finished goods and raw material retains. We have on staff a full-time analytical chemist to analyze all incoming raw materials.

Mother Murphy’s quality control team follows a multistep process that can include:

  • Comparing our products visually and organoleptically.
  • Comparing taste quality of new lots with last lot of flavor.
  • Measuring specific gravity and refractive index of each lot and comparing to acceptance ranges.
  • Analyzing both the new lot and previous lot by GCMS.
  • Analyzing by color using a spectrophotometer.
  • Analyzing particle size.

We always welcome customers to tour our facility, including our labs, to learn more about our company and its operations.
