July 15, 2011 — Emerson Ecologics LLC recently announced that the company has expanded its partnership with Metagenics, becoming a national distributor for their full product line of nutritional supplements.
For more than 25 years, Emerson Ecologics had been a West Coast distributor for Metagenics. Today, this expanded distribution agreement between the two nutritional supplement providers enables healthcare practitioners throughout the U.S. to order all Metagenics products directly from Emerson.
“Metagenics is one of our most requested product lines and this national distribution agreement will help us to better serve all our customers. Both companies are committed to high quality, science-based products, exceptional customer service, and educational opportunities to support healthcare practitioners and their patients,” said Andy Greenawalt, CEO, Emerson Ecologics. “I am also pleased to announce that Metagenics has qualified as an Emerson Quality Program Gold Partner, achieving the highest levels of quality manufacturing recognized by our company.”
The Emerson Quality Program(SM) (EQP) is an exclusive quality assurance program that verifies quality manufacturing procedures and standards, as well as the potency, bioavailability, and certainty of raw materials used in nutritional supplements products. Metagenics maintains triple GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certification from the three leading independent quality organizations.
“We are excited to enter into a national distribution agreement with Emerson Ecologics,” said Fred Howard, CEO of Metagenics. “Now healthcare providers can order Metagenics’ high quality products using the same convenient method they have come to know and rely on with Emerson.”
“Building upon our 26 year regional relationship, we are happy to expand our distribution agreement across the U.S.,” added Tim Katke, a founder and vice president of sales at Metagenics. “Many doctors buy multiple brands of nutritional supplements and want a one-stop shop to order those products. From our perspective, Emerson is the best in class in providing that type of service.”
