Once encapsulation and tableting are completed, finished products are assigned to a packaging line. In April 2000, NAI began operating its own finished goods packaging facility in Vista, CA. This new capability substantially eliminates the need to use outside packaging services to produce finished goods. NAI's packaging capabilities include bottles, powder fill, blister cards and packets. Management believes the ability to offer in-house packaging will help control costs and improve inventory management/quality control. As an example, product components are checked for lot identification, quality and adherence to specifications both prior to and during the packaging process. Tamper-evident safety seals are applied to each bottle to ensure the integrity of the product. After packaging is completed, the finished product is palleted, labeled and prepared for shipment. NAI's Graphic Design team works with each customer to create labels that have aesthetic appeal and adhere to Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) guidelines for consumer labeling set forth by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
