ColostrumNew Zealand ‘s colostrum industry is leading the way in delivering the highest quality colostrum sourced from premium grade cows fed on its lush green pastures.

Backed by solid scientific evidence, colostrum has been used for many years to improve immunity in children and adults. Breast milk contains colostrum which provides vital nutrients for tissue development, growth, energy and essential protection to new born babies against infection and a low immune system.
Cows are an ideal source of colostrum and in fact, bovine colostrum is more potent than human Colostrum.

Overview

Alaron Products Limited is New Zealand’s most respected GMP Certified contract and private label manufacturer of dietary supplements, complementary medicines, nutraceuticals, vitamins and minerals in hard shelled capsule, tablet, chewable tablet, coated tablet, powder blend, cosmetic and personal care form. We are audited, licensed and certified by the New Zealand Ministry of Health MedSafe Division, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration, the New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries, and the NZMPI Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines division for the manufacture and packing of products utilising herbal, dairy, probiotic, meat, game, fish, shellfish, apiary, vitamin, mineral, enzyme and cosmetic ingredients.

Alaron has access to New Zealand’s scientific research facilities. However, we are strictly a contract and private label manufacturer of capsules, tablets and powder blends produced to the highest standards to our customers’ formulations and specifications. We market no brands, nor do we have “standard products” as such.

Our strategy is to align ourselves with the best marketers of these types of products in their local markets world-wide. We therefore depend on the local marketer to best identify the products and formulations that will be most successful in their area. We also assume that the marketer will determine the best scientific information available to support their marketing story, usually by way of literature or Internet searches. Finally, the buyer needs to determine and co-ordinate compliance with the import and local market legal requirements. We also function as a gateway to Asia and Australia for marketers in North America and Europe who need a manufacturer that is familiar with regional regulatory requirements.

Our services include product development, procurement of materials, formulation, blending, hard shell capsule filling, tablet manufacturing, tablet coating, packing into pharmaceutical grade tablet bottles, powder pots or sachets, batch/use by coding and application of labels, and packing into cartons for dispatch. We also provide a complete cosmetic and personal care products development, production and packing service. We can co-ordinate the supply of all necessary inputs to production of a finished product, or can complete any stage of production, with supply of components by you.

We have access to a full range of ingredients from around the world as well as a focus on unique New Zealand ingredients from marine sources (NZ Greenshell Mussel, Shark Cartilage, Abalone, etc.), dairy (Colostrum, Whey Powders, Milk Powders, Lactoferrin, etc.), Apiary (Bee Pollen, Propolis, honey powder, etc.), Herbal (Grape seed, Blackcurrant, Pine Bark, Kiwi Fruit, Boysenberry, etc.), Deer Velvet, Deer Blood and related products.

GMP Certified Contract Manufacturer – Quality you can trust – Experience you can depend on – The ideal partner for your manufacturing needs – Your complete service provider.

Anagenix Group

Contact: Chris Johnson Address Level 1 18 Broadway Newmarket Auckland 1023 New Zealand Phone: 64 9 520 0831 Website: www.anagenix.com
Overview

Established in 2011, the Anagenix Group is a collective of New Zealand nutraceutical companies that are responding innovatively to the global need for natural health solutions. Each member company has a specific role to play in providing proven New Zealand bioactives to forward-thinking nutritional supplement and functional food businesses around the world.

The commercial link between New Zealand science and the world

Creation of the Anagenix Group was inspired by the need for a commercialisation link between ground-breaking New Zealand science and the world market. New Zealand has a strong heritage of discovery and development in the natural bioactive arena, led by government and private research organisations that focus on uses for New Zealand’s superior horticultural and marine products.

Working with leading research organisations

The Anagenix Group only works with products that are backed by robust scientific evidence. This commitment has led to the formation of mutually-beneficial partnerships that create connections between research and commercialisation.  Currently we have active partnerships with Plant & Food Research, Callaghan Innovation, Liggins Institute, HighValue Nutrition Challenge, the National Science Challenge, Bioresource Processing and a number of New Zealand universities.

Deploying New Zealand’s unique point of difference

Underpinning the intent of the Anagenix Group is New Zealand’s extraordinary growing environment. Located in the isolated south-west corner of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand has elevated UV levels that stimulate a defence mechanism in land and marine plants, ultimately resulting in significantly higher levels of polyphenols than found in the same/similar cultivars from other geographical locations.

An NZTE Focus 500 company

The Anagenix Group is actively building distribution networks in the USA, Canada, Australia, Asia and Europe. In 2014 we were approved as a Focus 500 company by New Zealand Trade & Enterprise. We were also ranked #53 on Deloitte’s Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500 for 2014.

OUR BRANDS

ACTAZIN

The New Zealand kiwifruit powder concentrate for inner health

ACTAZIN is a cold-pressed powdered kiwifruit concentrate that was developed in 2011 by Anagenix, based on their research conducted in partnership with Plant & Food Research New Zealand, a science institute owned by the New Zealand government.

Anagenix has taken ACTAZIN to the world as an ingredient for supplements and functional foods. It offers consumers a number of digestive health benefits:

  • Improved bowel regularity. ACTAZIN is a natural source of fibre, enzymes and polyphenols, which support normal bowel function. It’s a gentle alternative to harsh laxatives.
  • Better intestinal health. For those who are taking a probiotic or want to boost their natural population of ‘good’ gut bacteria, ACTAZIN may help by feeding beneficial microflora.
  • Enhanced protein digestion. The kiwi-unique enzyme actinidin found in ACTAZIN assists protein digestion, helping people to avoid that uncomfortable ‘overfull’ feeling after a protein-rich meal.

ACTAZIN consumer site

To nurture global interest in products that use ACTAZIN as an ingredient, we’ve developed a consumer website. Our site explains what ACTAZIN is, how it can help and where to find products that contain it. The site also provides general digestive health tips. Visit the ACTAZIN consumer website.

APURA GREEN

The New Zealand kiwifruit paste that improves the nutritional profile of food, drink and cooking products

 Apura Green is a natural, whole-fruit product that can be used in food and drink products to replace fat, sugar and salt. It’s a smart way to make a product more nutritionally appealing, while still maintaining a delicious taste and texture.

Anagenix has taken Apura Green to the world as an ingredient for cakes, cookies, breads, pastry, seasonings, marinades, nutritional bars, fruit juices, fruit fillings, fruit preserves, sauces, dresses, gravies and soups.

In today’s health conscious world, the benefits are compelling:

  • Reduces fat, salt and sugar content. Apura Green allows the reduction of egg, dairy, butter and cooking oils, to reduce calories and improve the nutritional profile of end products.
  • Extends shelf life. Using Apura Green as an ingredient helps to extend the shelf life of baked goods. Our research shows that Apura Green can extend shelf life of cookies by 26 days.
  • Adds goodness. Apura Green has naturally high levels of vitamins C and K, and dietary fibre.
  • Improves texture and appearance. A natural humectant, Apura Green creates softer, higher-moisture baked products that taste fresh for longer.
  • Easy to use and affordable. Apura Green is a simple drop-in ingredient that is highly cost-effective.
  • Clean label. Within your ingredients list, Apura Green can be listed as ‘kiwifruit paste’, which is more attractive to consumers than a scientific descriptor or number.
