Alaron Products Ltd

Contact: Claire Quin Address 13 Bolt Road Tahunanui Nelson 7011 New ZealandAddress PO Box 5080 Port Nelson Nelson 7043 New Zealand Phone: +64 3 548 5875 Website: www.alaron.co.nz
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.

Overview

“Let food be your medicine” Hippocrates. Like Hippocrates, Claude Stratford and Alan Bougen believed that nature’s food could be our medicine. Together they began Comvita in Paengaroa, New Zealand a country town in a region that’s aptly named the Bay of Plenty. And a community formed around them, feeling the benefits of living well. Forty years on, Comvita is still driven by our belief in the healing power of nature, and we’ve grown an international company and global community around inspiring and helping people live more joyful, healthy and vibrant lives. Fuelled by nature’s source foods, propolis and raw honey, Claude worked with a passion well into his nineties. And Alan’s heading healthily into his seventies. They continue to be our inspiration. Living Proof – That’s why we share everything we know about natural health and beauty, offering our own sourced and grown natural products, and revealing what makes them so effective. Through our dedicated science and innovation lab we’re gathering more evidence and learning from nature how to live fuller, healthier and more balanced lives. Through science we’ve learned about nature’s healing intelligence. 

At Comvita we call this ‘NQ’.

  • How we are part of nature and have this intelligence in our cells.
  • How it works with and balances our bodies’ systems.
  • How nature’s most powerful ingredients and compounds can nourish, protect, restore and revitalise us from the inside and outside.
  • A ‘health system’ we share with nature and you Nature continues to be our inspiration – the source of so many life-giving ingredients and a natural way to restore and protect our health. At Comvita we want to keep discovering, researching and offering these to you. Our hope is that we can inspire and help you to live and be well. Come visit us.

Share nature. Share life.

An effective way to provide support for our joints is the natural way. Hubris have developed a range of high quality, all natural products in New Zealand, a country renowned for its pristine, pure environment.
It is also well known that our closest animal companions suffer from the same conditions, and Hubris has developed products containing glucosamine and chondroitin that are involved in the maintenance and support of normal cartilage.

This is why we have focused our firm on helping our clients make the most of these valuable assets.

So yes, we’re intellectual property experts, but we are also business strategists, scientists, engineers, accountants, lawyers and commercialisation specialists. We’re all committed to the same goal – making sure Kiwi innovation makes it big on the world stage.

Lifestream International Ltd

Overview

Lifestream are committed to providing excellent and ongoing health improvements and benefits to our customers worldwide. We are proud to be known and respected as a company with the highest integrity that consistently uses only the finest quality ingredients to produce the most premium products on the market today. Our partners enjoy the fact that we are specialists and are known for our expertise in the whole foods based nutritional supplements that provide exceptional health benefits due to their purity and quality.

We do not compromise on quality – this is our trademark and our products are testament to this commitment.

THE COMPANY

Lifestream was founded in NZ in 1980 by a well known American gridiron player – Michael Hendrickson. Michael was a keen body builder but extremely adverse to the steroids that others in the sport used to achieve their goals. Michael searched for natural alternatives that would provide him with the energy to meet the rigors of his sport and training. He discovered Spirulina!

Michael moved to New Zealand in 1980, got married and founded a small nutritional company – Lifestream – with one product – Spirulina. Lifestream’s core value was (and always will be) – clean, green, honest natural product and it took until 1985 to find another product that matched it’s extremely high expectations and product profile; Lifestream Biogenic Aloe Vera Juice. This was launched the same year and it is important to recognize that Spirulina and Aloe Juice remain the lifeblood of the company and are still Lifestream’s best selling lines.

In 1994 the company was purchased by Steven Clews, Ross Turner and David Ross who are still Directors of the company today. (The fourth Director – Grenville Purchase joined the company in 1997). Grenville is currently the Managing Director of Lifestream.

The Directors of Lifestream can boast a combined experience of over 100 years in the health and beauty industry. Lifestream remains a privately owned New Zealand company.

PA & SC Steens Ltd

Contact: Daniel Dear Address 353 Devonport Road Tauranga 3110 New Zealand Phone: +64 7 571 6515 Website: http://www.steenshoney.com
Overview

THE STEENS’ STORY

The Steens’ journey started over 30 years ago on the pristine coast line of the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand’s North Island. As newlyweds, Paul and Sheryl started beekeeping as a hobby with 3 beehives on a small plot of land in Papamoa. It soon became a passion as they began to understand the brilliance of bees and the magical properties of Manuka honey. The Steens realised there was a real opportunity to deliver a different type of Manuka honey to consumers; one that is raw, natural and minimally processed.

33 years later, Steens now have one of the largest Manuka beekeeping operations in the world, with over 10,000 hives distributed across the North Island of New Zealand. Steens is completely vertically integrated, including owning our own production facility. This means we control and own each step of the Manuka honey harvesting and production process, from the hive through to the final product. We provide our customers with a Manuka honey with complete integrity. We know the source, we don’t heavily process or heat our honey. We give you nature’s elixir just as she intended.

OUR BELIEFS

Steens Honey stands for honesty and integrity. Everything we do is focused on delivering a truly natural Manuka honey to our consumers. This is reflected throughout the harvesting and manufacturing process.

  • MANUKA HONEY – AS NATURE INTENDED
    • RAW, COLD PROCESSED
      • We process our honey differently to most Manuka producers. We process our honey at 36C (hive temperatures) – not 70C, which is the temperature most Manuka is produced at. We also only process our honey once not twice – to deliver as raw a product as possible.
    • HONESTY AND INTEGRITY
      • QUALITY SYSTEM
        • Our facilities are RMP registered and are certified on behalf of the New Zealand Government’s Ministry of Primary Industry (MPI) department.
        • Our production facility and business systems are regularly and independently audited by AsureQuality.
        • Our factory has EU certification under the RMP quality system which is the most stringent RMP qualification.
      • TESTING – TRUE TO LABEL
        • We test every single batch of Manuka honey we produce – no exceptions
        • Steens Manuka honey is tested under the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) grading system, which uses the most comprehensive and transparent tests currently available for Manuka Honey.
        • In order to be graded under UMF, Steens tests for Manuka markers across 4 different spectrums, including the recently discovered Leptosperin – which is unique to Manuka.
        • Leptosperin is an abundant, stable, and scientifically researched marker that is unique to Manuka honey in NZ.
        • Steens – as part of the UMF association, has the rights to test exclusively for this key characteristic of Manuka honey.
      • TRACEABILITY
        • Steens is one of the few vertically integrated Manuka honey companies, and as such we are able to fully trace our honey back to source.
        • We have developed a unique integrated software system called ‘Hive Tracker’ which allows us to collect data on over 60,000 hive components and gives us world class research and hive management capability
        • Every pot of Steens honey has a trace code which can be used to trace your honey back to the region it is harvested from.

THE PURE VITALITY STORY

Driven by the growing necessity for holistic wellness, Pure Vitality set out on a journey to discover effective natural solutions that can transform people’s lives around the world.  Here, remotely secluded in the pristine islands of New Zealand, nature, science and traditional wisdom fuse into an energizing and rejuvenating essence with all the spark and life that is found in the world of Pure Vitality.

Good quality deer velvet is expensive to grow but we only use premium quality, full beam, deer velvet in our health supplements to ensure our customers get the best results. If deer velvet is cheap, it’s not the real deal!   Named the ‘Emperors Tonic’ for its powerful health giving properties, Deer Velvet has been highly regarded in traditional oriental medicine for 2000 years. More recently, scientific research in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Korea confirms velvet’s benefits for supporting joint health and mobility, healing and recovery, strength and endurance, healthy immune system, fertility and libido, and vitality and wellbeing.

Overview

In the early 80s, Tui Bee Balm was designed by Colin Isles, combining only natural ingredients to create a multi-purpose soothing & healing skin care balm. The recipe was gifted to the newly formed Tui Community in Golden Bay, New Zealand, in 1984.

For the first few years, the balms were hand-made with voluntary co-operative effort by the community residents. Over the years, new recipes were created and the range increased to include balms for specific uses as well as a range for all-over body massage.

From its humble beginnings, the co-operative has steadily grown, now providing local employment for 13 part-time staff. Tui Balms is still based at Tui Community, Wainui Bay, though nowadays at its own purpose-built premises.

Tui Balms has become the supreme medium for massage. After 33 years in business, we now have a very solid following of massage & health practitioners as well as private customers in NZ and Australia, and many internet customers scattered throughout the world. To meet the demand in Europe and the UK, Tui Balms is also being produced under licence in the UK by Songbird Naturals.
