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.

Overview

It is natural to feel the cumulative effects of repetitive activities on our joints, which slowly deteriorate as we get older. Injuries and exercise can sometimes hasten the process, eventually adversely and painfully affecting quality of life.
Sure signs of this are soreness, stiffness, decreased mobility and flexibility. The ageing process can also cause degeneration of joint cartilage.
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.
Hubris products are available online or from a selected distributor near you.

KEY INGREDIENTS
Perna Mussell, sun dried kelp, glucosamine, vitamin E

Contact: David Stedfast Address 189 Heaphy Road RD1 Dobson 7872 New Zealand Phone: +64 3 7380520 Website: www.purevitality.co.nz
Overview

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.

OVERVIEW

Nestled in the foothills of the snow capped Southern Alps, Pure Vitality provides a special and unique range of deer products, deer antler velvet, manuka honey, health supplements and skincare products from our own property.  We farm one of the largest herds of red deer in New Zealand; we make the hives, harvest the honey from our own bee hives and have built our own fully registered manufacturing, processing and packing facility on our own farm.  Pure Vitality’s purity and quality guarantee begins with balancing the soil, growing pure and healthy pasture and breeding and nourishing the finest animals on our own farm.  This enables us to control quality right from the soil to the shelf.  We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced business partners who want to take New Zealand’s Health to the world.

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.

CONTRACT MANUFACTURING

While we produce our own brands of deer antler velvet, health supplements, honey products, and natural skincare we also offer contract manufacturing services.  Our manufacturing facility, NZPURE1 is registered and audited by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Premium deer velvet, deer products, manuka honey, honey products, selenomethionine, vitamins, minerals, herbs and botanicals and natural skincare.
