NV: Nutrient Foods Launches Research and Manufacturing Facility in Reno

Mar 06, 2015

Nutrient Foods, an advanced scientific nutritional foods research and manufacturing company, announced the opening of its 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Reno, that will replace its New Jersey operations. The facility will manufacture nutrient-dense foods scientifically formulated to provide the 43 + essential nutrients plus fiber required daily by humans to live, grow and heal in every meal. Nutrient Foods is the scientific and manufacturing enterprise behind its sister company, Yevo International, a direct sales company headquartered in Salt Lake City.

Nutrient Foods was founded several years ago by highly successful industry leaders Peter Castleman and Chip Marsland. Their vision: reversing the 100 years of deteriorating food quality that is a result of the processed food industry's aggressive push toward addictive food products void of essential nourishment. Nutrient Food's goal is to provide a nutritional alternative to the prevalent fast, pre-packaged and processed options that dominate supermarket shelves and consumer diets around the world.

"Our mission is to improve human health and wellness and ultimately happiness through good nutrition," says Castleman, Nutrient Food's and Yevo's chairman. "Roughly 70 percent of our diets come from processed foods that are generally void of nutrients. People simply aren't getting enough of the essential nutrients needed to live healthy lives. Proper nutrition is the foundation of human health and wellness. Our goal is to improve the lack of essential nourishment throughout the world by providing readily available and affordable nutrient-dense foods, meals and programs."

Marsland, Nutrient Food's Chief Executive Officer and Yevo's Chief Innovation Officer, has approximately 30 years of nutrition science and food technology business experience worldwide. His scientific team has spent years and millions of dollars developing the revolutionary food products and proprietary manufacturing technologies that are the heart of Nutrient Food's nutrient-rich foods.

"The food industry utilizes vintage circa-1900 technology. Those manufacturing processes destroy the delicate essential nutrients in the foods, making them "dead" and non-nourishing. On top of that, they add chemical preservatives, artificial flavors and synthetic additives you can't pronounce," Marsland says. "Today's foods have lots of empty calories but very few nutrients. Our unique products provide the body all the nutrients its needs daily to grow, heal and live. Curing the world of pervasive chronic disease through food is our ultimate mission."

By employing its unique technologies, Nutrient Foods is able to make foods full of essential nutrients and fiber. And because of this, the company's products are simple and popular everyday meals including granolas, oatmeals, mac & cheese dishes, ramen noodle bowls, as well as many others. Nutrient Foods sells its foods in the U.S. through Yevo. Over the next few months Yevo is expanding into Japan, Mexico and Korea as its first phase of worldwide expansion.

"This is an exciting day for the Reno-Sparks community as we welcome to the region, Nutrient Foods, an advanced scientific nutritional foods research and manufacturing company that will not only add up to 300 jobs to the area but will also locate their corporate headquarters here," says Mike Kazmierski, CEO of EDAWN. "Nutrient Foods is representative of the growing number of manufacturing companies, especially in the food industry, that are finding the Reno-Sparks region a great fit for their growth."

"What a fantastic fit for Reno," adds Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve. "The addition of Nutrient Foods further improves our economy and adds to our economic development efforts and our continued goal to provide a healthy lifestyle for people in our region."
