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.
