About NOW Foods

Founded in 1968, NOW Foods is a natural products manufacturer based in Bloomingdale, Illinois. Led by entrepreneur Elwood Richard, NOW Foods aims to provide high-quality, affordable natural supplements and healthy foods.

After an initial failed business attempt due to high prices, Elwood reformulated his strategy to take control over manufacturing costs. He established his own production lines to make natural products more accessible. The Richard family still owns NOW Foods today, which has grown into an industry leader known for its commitment to quality and sustainability.

NOW Foods offers a wide range of supplements, essential oils, natural foods and personal care products. Key categories include vitamins & minerals, amino acids, probiotics, proteins, sports nutrition, men’s and women’s health, bone & joint support, digestive aids, health oils, weight management, beauty products, organic foods, healthy snacks and more.

All products adhere to quality control guidelines such as USDA organic, non-GMO project verified, and cGMP standards. NOW Foods operates advanced onsite laboratories to test raw materials and finished goods. The company has achieved numerous eco-friendly certifications in recognition of sustainability initiatives at its manufacturing facilities.

In addition to quality natural products, NOW Foods aims to support local and global communities. The company contributes to charitable organizations both nearby and internationally, including Feeding America and Vitamin Angels among others. Environmental preservation is also a priority, demonstrated through partnerships with groups like The Conservation Foundation.
