Our Spanish Fork manufacturing facility played host to our Global Rising Stars for a special, behind-the-scenes look at what separates Nature’s Sunshine from our competitors in the marketplace. Over 60 up-and-coming distributors from 16 countries across the globe joined us as we visited with staff and executives throughout the day.
The highlight of our Rising Star event, our plant tour gives an in-depth look at our Quality Assurance, Research and Development, and Manufacturing departments. Participants enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the individuals responsible for developing, testing and producing our industry-leading products. As a special treat, our Global Rising Stars also got some hands-on experience testing raw materials and developing their very own herbal formulation.
In our stop with Quality Assurance, attendees had the opportunity to test ingredients in our Herb Lab to identify the raw material and verify its potency. In our Microbiological Lab, participants worked with NSP scientists to test raw materials for microbiological contamination. Working side by side with our experts, they learned about the hundreds of tests used to ensure the purity and efficacy of Nature’s Sunshine products.
In our Research and Development department, our Rising Stars worked in the pilot lab to formulate and produce their own herbal combination. By collaborating with our R&D staff, they learned about the process of product development and what it takes to make a world-class product.
The manufacturing tour gives attendees the opportunity to witness the painstaking efforts we make to produce the finest products on the market. They learn all about our pharmaceutical-grade production equipment and the good manufacturing practices we use to guarantee the quality of every batch of products.
NSP distributors often hear about the quality of Nature’s Sunshine products, but only our Rising Stars get to see for themselves what goes into that claim. After the Rising Star experience, they can say with absolute certainty that Nature’s Sunshine has the highest quality products on the market today, and that testimony will strengthen their business and help fuel their growth in the years to come.
