MANUFACTURING PRACTICES - Find out what sets USANA apart from the competition.
USANA’s founder, Myron Wentz, Ph.D., created this science-based company because he had a vision of a
world free from pain and suffering. A world free from disease.
And he knew science and high-quality manufacturing could help him bring his vision to life.
That’s why our commitment to quality goes beyond the formulas we create.
We manufacture more than 90 percent of our products in our own manufacturing facilities so we can control the entire process, from raw ingredient to finished supplement. John Cuomo, Ph.D., USANA’s executive director of product development and technology, explains, “The main reason to manufacture our products in-house is so we can control the process at every step. This is our house. This is our business. And nobody else is going to take care of it if we don’t.”
In addition to our own high standards of manufacturing, a variety of government agencies conduct periodic inspections of our facilities, requiring strict control of procedures and documentation. Our Salt Lake City, Utah, facility is certified to be in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements set forth in NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2012,
Dietary Supplements by NSF International, and it also became a
registered U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Drug Establishment in 2011.
As such, all components of the manufacturing process are evaluated and inspected by the same
FDA standards as are used for pharmaceutical products.
Additionally, in several countries around the world, supplements are more highly regulated than in the United States. In Australia, for example, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) mandates that manufacturers follow a set of GMP identical to pharmaceutical GMP in the United States. As an Australian supplier, USANA is regularly inspected and audited by the TGA to ensure that their GMP standards are met.
USANA manufactures the highest-rated, most effective nutritional supplements and
health care products in the world. Our products are the best money can buy.
Their focus is on personalization—the product line allows you to think about your
personal choices in life and how your everyday behaviors have an impact on your
overall quality of life.
They offer our products to customers through a process called direct selling. Direct selling is a
little different. It’s not the status quo. It’s not how people are used to buying what they want.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PRODUCTS
USANA and science—they were made for each other. That’s why we have a team of in-house experts and scientists dedicated to incorporating knowledge from the latest scientific finding and clinical studies into our products. To stay on the cutting edge, we also partner with renowned research institutions and nutritional experts and consult with our Scientific Advisory Council—a group of independent healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring
we create the best products possible.
“At USANA, scientific research is at the heart of every product we offer. Whether in studies conducted by top scientists in our on-site laboratories, or findings from the many research partnerships we have across the globe, USANA is fully committed to the research and development of cutting-edge nutritional technology.
And, of course, our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities ensure that each product we create is made with the same high quality that set us apart from others in the past and will allow us to lead the field in the future.”
