Wellnext expands gummy vitamin production capabilities


SUNRISE, Fla. - Wellnext announced Wednesday the opening of a new, state-of-the-art gummy vitamin plant in its Sunrise, Fla. facility. The new Wellnext plant uses the latest technology, including non-starch molds and fully robotized equipment.

According to the company, sales of gummy vitamins grew 45% from 2012 through 2014 and now comprise 18% of new product launches.

"The opening of our state-of-the-art gummy manufacturing facility is a direct response to consumer enthusiasm for the gummy vitamin format," stated Jose Minski, CEO Wellnext. "Our new gummy plant showcases Wellnext's focus on always leveraging the best in new technologies as we continue to deliver outstanding nutritional products."

Wellnext is currently the only manufacturer in the United States producing gummies using non-starch technology, which significantly reduces contamination risk. Legacy starch technologies require recycling of the starch material posing a higher risk of cross contamination. The new Wellnext facility will be able to eliminate any and all cross-contamination via the advanced technology used in this plant. Wellnext's new plant produces both vegetarian and gelatin based gummies.
