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

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.

Tui Bee Balm Co-operative

Contact: Keith Orr Address 223 McShane Rd RD1 Wainui Bay Takaka 7183 New Zealand Phone: +64 3 525 9654 Website: www.tuibalms.co.nz
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.
