Enhancing Brands With Quality Products
Vit-Best Nutrition provides fully integrated contract manufacturing solutions for the natural products industry.
The world of nutritional products is driven by explosive change. The popularity and proliferation of nutritional supplements and natural food products, increased regulation and compliance reporting, along with consumer demand for transparency make manufacturing an increasingly complex process for the brand owner. The choice of a manufacturing outsource partner is critical.
At Vit-Best, the company understands production management. Its mission is to enhance its client’s brand with a quality product—delivered on time, on budget.
More than 60 years of contract manufacturing experience gives Vit-Best adaptability to accommodate each client’s unique production requirements. The company’s professional management team oversees some of the finest production facilities, manufacturing processes, ingredient sourcing, formulation development and product enhancement capabilities.
Consumer confidence in nutritional products comes from manufacturing expertise, quality assurance, regulatory compliance and ingredient transparency.
The Vit-Best quality assurance program complies with FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) and FSVP (Foreign Supplier Verification Program), the two new standards for food safety. The company’s onsite laboratory enables full scale, in-process testing for contaminants, heavy metals and pathogens, and analytical testing to ensure purity and potency.
Innovation comes from listening and observing. Whether through product and ingredient R&D, formulation development and enhancement, or research into the new products and ingredients, Vit-Best offers its customers a full range of services to bringing the latest, must up-to-date products to market.
Operating from its 180,000-square-foot campus in Tustin, CA, Vit-Best employs manufacturing processes focusing on the economics of production with scalability, surge-fulfillment, long and short-scale runs. An important advantage for Vit-Best is the company’s Mixing/ Blending capacity, which is one of the largest in the industry.
