Inauguration Ceremony of Enzymotec's New Biotechnology Facility Draws Big Names

Jarrow L. Rogovin, President of Jarrow Formulas®, Inc., a global wellness and nutritional product company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, was one of the speakers along with Israeli President Shimon Peres at Enzymotec’s new plant opening ceremony that took place on July 6th at the Sagi 2000 industrial area in Northern Israel southeast of Haifa.

Approximately 350 guests attended the event and came from around the world, including from the US, Canada, Europe and the Far East.
The new state of the art 200,000-square-foot cGMP facility includes several production lines, research laboratories and Enzymotec’s main offices.

According to Elzaphan Hotam, CEO, Enzymotec USA Inc, Jarrow gave a very moving speech based on his family connections in Israel, his personal support of the Jewish state, and being Enzymotec’s first customer in the US for its phosphatidylserine product. “Jarrow’s speech was extremely heartfelt and added so much to the ceremony,” says Hotam. “It was one of the highlights of the event.”

“I felt incredibly honored to be invited to attend and even speak by Ariel Katz, Enzymotec’s founder and President,” says Jarrow L. Rogovin, President of Jarrow Formulas and Chairman of the Board, Jarrow Industries. “Meeting President Peres, sitting next to him and being thanked by him for my speech was amazing. He’s a very great man. One of the themes I developed was about my late cousin Tova Peeri. She survived the Shoa and came to Israel in 1947. I told the story about the time I drove with her on a tour of northern Israel and the pride in her voice when she proudly acclaimed to me, ‘Look what we have done!’ The audience suddenly applauded and then I carried through to the present saying, ‘Mr. President – Ariel – [addressing one of the nation’s founders along with the founder of the company] if Cousin Tova were here today, she would say, ‘Look what you have done!’ When the President spoke, first in Hebrew, then in English, he spoke of the need to maintain health and researching how to do this and the importance of products that support good health since we are living longer.”
