Get to Know NOW Foods

Stop for a second and think about the last time you put something into your shopping cart (online or at a store) and paused to consider the manufacturing, safety testing and the people behind what you’ve decided to purchase. Whether that item is coconut oil for your DIY body scrubs, essential oils for your diffuser or a box of spaghetti noodles for dinner, what do you know about the company behind the product?

Maybe nothing at all or what you’ve seen on a 10 second commercial.

Let Me Introduce You to NOW Foods

This is why I’m excited to tell you about NOW Foods. Until a few weeks ago, I was living under a rock. I had never heard of this brand but now I have seen first had with my own eyes the 40 million dollar lab and manufacturing process. The testing that goes into bringing each product from start to finish to market – with a no acceptance policy for anything but superior ingredients and quality control. A team of scientists and nutritionists that are on-site testing each product, with a .02% error rate – that is exceptional.

First hand, I saw the facilities and walked through the seeing the scientists hard at work.

I saw the staff, doing quality checks on products to send the product up the lab for testing for any type of contamination.NOW Foods quality control and safety checks from the #NOWWellness Influencer event.

I witnessed employees being praised for earning safety points because safety is number one.

I heard from the CEO, met the people and saw the hard word. The work that 600 NOW Food employees devote their lives to so that NOW Foods can be sold in every zip code in the U.S. and around the globe in 62 countries. I heard from the CEO how the company is a family company with a NO lay off policy and where each employee receives the same bonus based on profit, whether it’s a production worker or the CEO. That my friends, is impressive! (Watch my Instagram video here.)

I met one of the chefs and learned about the oils and how they’re not all created equal. I listened to the NOW Ambassadors share how they use the products and create healthy recipes for their families.

I heard from the passionate employees about their dedication to bringing non-GMO, as well as gluten-free products to the market affordably for consumers, many of which are organic. When you see the enthusiasm and pride, it says a lot about a company.

I saw boxes being continually recycled – saving 12,000 trees each year. I heard about how they conserve 1.3 gallons of water each year.

I’m lucky, I witnessed this first hand because NOW Foods flew me to Bloomingdale, Illinois for a special #NOWWellness Influencer event. I hope, through my experience, you’ll stop and think about which product you decide to buy. Maybe consider trying NOW Foods because they’re a brand that does care about what YOU consume. They do put their money where their mouths from the testing they do to the way they treat their employees and invest in science and technology for high quality natural products.
