Letter From The C.E.O.
Hello, my name is Rick Simpson, and I am the C.E.O. of Ultra Laboratories. I would like to first say “thank you” for your interest in our company. This company has been built largely by loyal customers who recognize our absolute commitment to quality and our integrity in manufacturing and formulating new and innovative products.
My commitment to our company can be seen by the fact that I personally consume 125 supplement capsules per day in my quest for optimal health. This company is at least in part a “byproduct” of my upbringing and my own personal experiences with ill-health at a young age and the positive effects that the natural food industry has had on my own life for well over thirty years.
We started as a contract manufacturing company in 1997 and then, in 2001, we opened up Emerald Laboratories, which ultimately became Ultra Laboratories. We currently produce approximately 250,000,000 capsules per year and about 2,000,000 pounds of blended powders. We are a c.G.M.P. manufacturing facility, and we also have our own “in-house” laboratory where we test all incoming ingredients and outgoing products. More important, we manufacture ALL of our own products and are able to control quality from “beginning to end.”
The Additive-Free Company
The one thing that truly sets our company apart from most is that we are “The Additive-Free Company”. This means that our product formulas include ONLY active, nutritive ingredients. Other products contain additives such as magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, crosscarmellose sodium, microcrystalline cellulose and/or stearic acid, that are listed as “other ingredients”, and are NOT generally in the product to benefit your health. The only “other ingredient” you’ll ever see on our products is the “capsule”. We are committed to making products that are QUALITY from “beginning to end,” and we feel the “cleaner” we can make our products the better.
We have also partnered with Dr. Mark Stengler, N.M.D, “America’s Natural Doctor®”, who, for the last 9 years, has formulated our products to the same specifications he uses in his integrative medical clinic in Encinitas, CA.
Exciting New Changes
We are very excited to have united all of our brands (Emerald Laboratories, Fruitrients, Ultra Botanicals, Rainforest and Sweet Dreams) under ONE cohesive brand called “Emerald”. Everyone will now be able to recognize all of our unique brands as being part of the same additive-free family! All UPC’s and formulas remain the same. Products with “The New Look of Emerald” started appearing in July 2017 with the full product line transition to be completed in 2018.
Again, I sincerely thank you for your interest in Ultra Laboratories and hope we will be able to work together in the future.
Yours in good health,
Rick Simpson, C.E.O.
