About Wellington Foods Inc.
Wellington Foods is a contract manufacturer of liquid- and powder-based nutritional supplements. The company was founded in 1974 and since that time has proudly manufactured products for many brands in the nutritional supplement industry.
Wellington Foods’ core competence is the development and production of liquid nutritional supplements and powder-based nutritional supplements. Within these two main product types, we produce products in many different categories, servicing a wide variety of brands and market segments. Our capabilities are also broad and varied, allowing us to blend and package products in a number of different sizes, package types and packaging configurations. We continue to add to our product offerings on a regular basis, with new packaging equipment and capacity to keep pace with our customers’ needs.
Our 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art headquarters and manufacturing facility in Corona, California, houses an extensive blending, packaging, production and bottling operation, as well as our Research & Development laboratory and our Quality Control laboratory. The facility provides the needed space to achieve best practices and meet regulatory requirements in many areas, including material storage, and separation and process control. Wellington Foods’ Quality Systems and Regulatory Compliance Department is involved in every step of our operation, with broad authority over decisions related to product quality and regulatory compliance.
Wellington Foods operates under the regulation of 21 CFR Part 111. Compliance with this regulation requires a company-wide effort, but our Quality Systems department is tasked with the oversight of this compliance. In an effort to meet the requirements of this regulation, our Quality Systems department has invited several voluntary 3rd party audits by both NSF and the Natural Products Association (NPA). We also perform internal audits, and welcome customers and their quality teams for audits on a regular basis. In addition, Wellington Foods maintains its status as an Organic Certified facility through the audit of QAI.
