Health Food Made in the U.S.A. An American Manufacturing Success Story

Health food manufactured in the U.S.A. is not always the greatest, but one manufacturer is working to set higher standards. With one of the biggest production facilities in the world, this producer is doing more than any other health food company to guarantee the safety and effectiveness of its totally natural, herb based products.

Starting 29 years ago, Dr. Tei-Fu Chen, an American immigrant from Taiwan and his wife, Dr. Oi-Lin Chen from Hong Kong, gave birth to Sunrider. Today, with worldwide headquarters in Los Angeles, California, Sunrider is a leading manufacturer of premium herbal health food and green personal care products. Sunrider’s state-of-the-art U.S. manufacturing facility boasts an unrivaled 1 million square feet of space on some of the most expensive real estate anywhere. Touring the factory, one realizes the focus on cleanliness, safety, and effectiveness that permeates every infinitesimal detail of the production process.

Sunrider’s exceptional production processes are setting new standards of quality in the health food industry. The company self manufactures over 415 natural, plant based products that harness ancient Chinese formulas combined with remarkable technological advances. Possessing unrivaled owner expertise, Dr. Chen is one of the world’s leading authorities on herbs and a licensed pharmacist, while his counterpart, Mrs. Oi-Lin Chen, is a Western trained Medical Doctor. Jointly, they lead a pool of scientists to unite the herbal traditions of the East with modern technology of the West in order to manufacture the safest, most potent herbal health food products possible.

In the company’s new manufacturing plant, Dr. Tei-Fu Chen has made it a priority to eliminate toxic, heavy metals, such as mercury and radiation from the raw herbs that Sunrider uses. His manufacturing processes extend far beyond what most health food companies adhere to for testing of undesirable microbes and heavy metals in their raw ingredients. No other health food manufacturer in the world is taking the colossal steps that this company is to assure that their products are safe and potent. In fact, many health food companies do not even manufacture their own products, but subcontract that operation to a third party.

In addition to innumerable awards accepted by Sunrider for health food manufacturing, Dr. Chen was honored by Forbes Asia as one of the 25 most important Chinese-Americans in 2010. His humanitarian efforts have been acknowledged by Unicef, The American Cancer Society, and the American Red Cross, among others. Some might say that Dr. Chen is lucky to have built a health food empire generating millions of dollars in revenue and enjoying such fantastic success. He prefers the wisdom that says “luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”. This is why Sunrider will soon be celebrating 30 years as an American health food manufacturing success story.
