My Tour of @NOWFoods Manufacturing Facilities in Bloomingdale, Illinois #NOWWellness

disclosure 2

Nowadays, ‘health’ companies come a dime a dozen. With so many to choose from, how can you know which ones are legitimate?

One way to find out is get as up close and personal as possible to the company and their operations. This is exactly what I got the chance to do with NOW Foods.

About NOW Foods

Founded in 1968, NOW Foods is a company that’s dedicated to providing customers with a comprehensive approach to wellness by offering more than 1,400 high-quality, natural and affordable products, from nutrient-rich foods and supplements to personal care and sports nutrition items. I had the pleasure of touring their facilities in Bloomingdale, Illinois.

NOW Foods Immersion Experience

During the facilities tour, I got the chance to see everything from their ingredient labs, to packaging and shipping. Everything was state-of-the-art. I was also given a background on how NOW Foods has evolved to the leading brand that it is now. I learned about NOW Foods’ commitment to sourcing the very best natural ingredients for their products. It was clear to see why NOW Foods is one of the largest independent manufacturers of natural products in the U.S. health food store channel today.

Why I now choose NOW Foods

When you have in-depth information about the brands that you buy from, it truly makes a difference. Being able to tour NOW Food’s facilities and speak to the CEO and other staff made me feel confident in choosing NOW Foods products for my family over others. When I purchase any of NOW Food’s items – whether it is kids’ toothpaste for my children, or macadamia nut oil for cooking, I can rest assured that I am giving only the highest quality products to my family. Selecting such healthy choices equals a continued healthy lifestyle for my entire household.

I am so glad that I was fortunate enough to get a behind-the-scenes look at the operations of NOW Foods, and all that they have to offer! There were a few NOW Foods products that I was already using, but now after the tour, I will surely be increasing the amount of NOW Foods products that I buy for my home!

Awesome experience! I remember going on an education trip to an ice cream factory when I was in grade school. It was such a great experience, plus of course, we had our fill of free ice cream after the tour. Thank you for sharing your experience with NOW foods.

I’ve never heard of Now Foods before. I am impressed by their Non-GMO guarantee. I am kind of freaked out by GMO foods.
