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

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.
