What Makes Natural Factors Unique?

  

Natural Factors is an INFRA sponsor. Article provided by Natural Factors.

Today, we are one of the largest manufacturers of nutritional products in North America. But our origins reach back to the 1950s, and right from day one, we’ve always been fully committed to making products right. 

A Very Special Place 

Natural Factors Farms is a very special tract of land, covering more than 2,000 acres. This exquisite certified-organic farmland uses regenerative farming practices to give us complete control over securing the best-quality raw materials possible – from seed selection to final product.  Few, if any, companies in the world can demonstrate such a degree of oversight with their operations. Our farm has truly unique soil, built up over millennia from repeated flooding that deposited a tremendous amount of organic matter onto the land. The topsoil is more than six feet deep in places! 

Big Enough to Do it Right

We have more than 900,000 square feet of space across nine locations in North America and believe we need to be “big enough to do it right.” This means bringing as many processes in-house as possible. We are one of the only nutritional companies to have our own organic farms; our own extraction, encapsulation, and production facilities; our own labs and research facilities; and a vast network of academic, scientific, and retail partners. We are also one of the few branded manufacturers of nutraceuticals in North America to have our own softgel encapsulation facility. 

Unsurpassed Quality Assurance

Our facilities conform to all requirements of current FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), as well as those set by the Canadian government’s Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD). In addition, our facilities have been certified by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA), one of the world’s most stringent guidelines for manufacturing dietary supplements. 

ISURA Third-Party Product Verification and Certification

We chose ISURA to certify our products because it uses state-of-the-art equipment. It also uses mass spectrometry to test for over 800 pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, and other contaminants including glyphosate. The ISURA seal of approval is your guarantee that our products are non-GMO, safe, pure, and potent. 

Commitment to Science

One thing that sets us apart from others in this industry is the breadth of knowledge of the scientific experts who work for the company. Drawn from around the world and chosen for their unique training and background, our scientists and quality-control specialists are recognized experts in their fields. 

Reducing Our Footprint

We are working to reduce our footprint in all areas of our operations. Our newest production facility in Monroe, Washington is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certified. Our company has found ways to reduce waste and improve energy efficiency at both our offices and our manufacturing facilities and is working toward zero waste, including becoming carbon neutral in 2021  

Giving Back

Whether it’s supporting research and education, making charitable donations, or giving products to people in need, we give back in many ways—locally, nationally, and around the world. Natural Factors is also B Corp certified. As a B Corp company, Natural Factors is part of the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system.
