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.

“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.

Overview
  • We are New Zealand Mānuka

New Zealand Mānuka Group can trace its history with Mānuka all the way back to the beginning of the Mānuka industry, established by Phil Caskey in the early 1990’s. Phil Caskey established one of the first New Zealand’s specialist Mānuka honey companies in 1996. Recognising the unique properties of Mānuka, Phil was integral in establishing the now globally recognised UMF® Mānuka honey purity and quality system. Through his work with Professor Peter Molan from the University of Waikato, and a medical device company in the UK, Phil created and registered the first Mānuka honey medical device in the world in 2001. The honey wound care dressing is still a popular product in most medical kits and hospitals today.

Today, New Zealand Mānuka Group is leading the industry into an ever more exciting future through investment in product innovations and scientific research – taking the ancient Mānuka plant to new markets and customers worldwide, through offering UMF® certified Mānuka honey and MβTK™ certified Mānuka oil products that are sustainably and ethically sourced from the remote coastal regions of New Zealand.

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.

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.
