Our expert team at Vitaquest is committed to delivering what’s next and staying on top of the latest nutraceutical industry trends. That is why we’re so excited that the research and insights of several of our team’s experts have been published on an international stage.
In Nutritional Outlook, Rick Handel, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations, authored “Dietary Supplement Manufacturing: How to Ensure Your Contract Manufacturer is Adhering to Best Practices.” In February, Lesley O’Connor, our Senior Manager of Regulatory Affairs, wrote “Ensuring Regulatory Compliance When Bringing a Product to Market” for WholeFoods Magazine. In February, our very own Mike Young, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, was featured in Nutraceuticals World as a quoted expert in the article “Manufacturing Dietary Supplements in Economic Uncertainty.” These thought-provoking and eye-opening pieces have further cemented Vitaquest as a regulatory and brand reputation leader in the nutraceutical industry.
Protecting Your Reputation
With a history that spans four decades, we know a thing or two about brand reputation, including how long it takes to build and how quickly it can falter. In his article, Handel discusses how to avoid product recalls to protect your brand, saying that one product recall can destroy a company’s hard-earned reputation. This is why quality assurance, social responsibility, and sustainability are at the forefront of everything we do. We source quality ingredients, invest in the safest technology, and QA our products time and time again before they ever go to market.
In his article, Handel breaks down what to look for when seeking a nutraceutical manufacturer who puts brand reputation and product quality first, from regulatory standards to labeling compliance. If you’re looking for a manufacturing partner, we highly suggest reading his article. Read the Article
Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
Regulatory compliance and brand reputation go hand-in-hand. O’Connor notes how important it is for brands to focus on compliance as the nutraceutical industry and an interest in personal health grows. Regulations didn’t exist before 1994; however, the FDA has revealed several vital compliance measures over the past three decades.
In her article, O’Connor breaks down this history, outlines the latest regulations, and shares how brands can navigate global expansion. Far too often, regulatory controls are considered an adversary. However, O’Connor shows how they can be a benefit in this competitive industry. Read the Article
Overcoming Economic Uncertainty
Finally, today’s economic challenges are being felt by all industries, especially our own. The costs of ingredients, materials, and logistics have increased dramatically. Still, the supplement industry has experienced booming demand since the pandemic. Keeping up with demand while battling economic uncertainty and supply chain disruptions is no easy feat.
In an article for Nutraceuticals World, Young discusses how Vitaquest has embraced the unexpected by enhancing our planning tools, expanding customer communication, and improving our systems and processes. These changes have set us apart from our competitors, allowing us to keep up with demand and the ever-changing economic landscape without sacrificing quality or customer service.
