Los Angeles, CA, February 20, 2007 – Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas® today announced it is a recipient of two of Nutrition Business Journal’s prestigious 2006 Business Achievement Awards. Jarrow was a recipient of an award in the “Investment in the Future” category for investing more than $2 million on an expansion to add an additional 31,000 square feet to its manufacturing facility, Jarrow Industries, based in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The expanded 76,000-square-foot facility will provide additional services for bottle packaging lines, automated powder packaging line, pouch packaging line, blister card and box packaging lines.
Jarrow L. Rogovin, President and CEO of Jarrow Formulas®, was also the recipient of an award in the “Efforts on Behalf of the Industry” category. Mr. Rogovin championed a campaign to make dietary supplement industry manufacturers, distributors, marketers and retailers aware of whether the Adverse Event Reporting (AER) legislation would be deleterious to the industry. A handful of individuals, organizations and supplement marketers were urging retailers to oppose the legislation and to involve their customers in this protest to Congress. According to Mr. Rogovin, “failure to pass the AER bill would redound seriously to the detriment of the natural products industry.” Ten thousand copies of this letter were distributed to appropriate parties.
Additionally, NBJ awarded Jarrow Formulas “Product Merit Awards” for the following two (2) products:<
- Fem Dophilus™: The only oral probiotic clinically documented to restore and maintain a healthy vaginal flora and reduce the risk of urogenital infections. Fem-Dophilus features the world's most documented probiotic strains for women's health, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1™ and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14™.
- PomGuard™: Offers greater bioavailability than other pomegranate supplements because it contains specially fermented pomegranate juice along with a complete spectrum of pomegranate phytochemicals from leaf, peel and seed. The product is rich in polyphenol antioxidants, including punicalagin, as well as many other disease-fighting compounds.
Nutrition Business Journal’s Executive Review issue annually publishes Q & A’s with the industry’s top executives and recognizes business achievement and outstanding new products in the natural products industry.
