Recently, I had the opportunity to share the Vitaquest story with the editors of Insights Care magazine. Recognizing our team’s ability to innovate, the magazine identified Vitaquest as one of the “10 Most Innovative Companies in the Nutraceutical Market.” I appreciate the accolades and enjoy the fact that my team is being honored for their ingenuity and contributions to this growing field.
I had a great time telling our story because it was very interesting to revisit what we have accomplished. Vitaquest is celebrating its 45th year in business in 2022, and since our inception we have established ourselves as one of the premier product development and manufacturing companies in the nutraceutical and functional foods business. We have grown significantly over the years, and today we produce more than 4,000 custom products for more than 500 brands in over 75 countries.
Our innovation capability is one of the keys to the growth we have experienced, and it has helped us to be at the forefront of nutraceutical manufacturers who are developing new concepts and innovative delivery systems for health-promoting formulations. As I shared with Insights Care, Vitaquest is continually updating its manufacturing capabilities, including the introduction of a new 200,000 square-foot manufacturing facility that we inaugurated just last year, expanding our total footprint to more than 500,000 square feet. With the new facility, we increased warehousing, product development, and laboratory space by more than 50%. Our facilities are among the most modern in the industry and that means we can do more for our customers than ever before.
But innovation alone will not ensure success. I discussed the importance of not cutting corners. At Vitaquest, we are committed to high quality and doing things the right way, and that means we conduct a lot of quality testing – probably more than any similar company in our industry.
Our commitment to innovation and quality has fueled our growth for the last 45 years, and it has made us one of the largest functional food and supplement contract manufacturers in the industry today.
When you have a moment, I invite you to check out the Vitaquest feature from Insights Care. I hope that you enjoy reading our story as much as I enjoyed telling it.
