Area residents enjoy touring the company’s manufacturing facility and organic farm
PALMYRA, Wis. — On July 31, from 2 to 7 p.m., over 750 people visited Standard Process Inc. during the whole food supplement manufacturer’s first Community Open House. The event celebrated the company’s 25th anniversary as a member of the Palmyra community.
Palmyra residents and guests from as far away as Horicon, Wis., received a 90-minute behind-the-scenes tour of Standard Process’ corporate headquarters located at 1200 W. Royal Lee Drive. After viewing how the company’s whole food supplements (vitamins) are made, a coach bus shuttled guests over to Standard Process’ 450 acres of certified organic farmland. Following the farm tour, guests visited with key Standard Process personnel and enjoyed refreshments in the company’s Welcome Center.
“It was exciting for us to be able to open our doors and show everyone how Standard Process supplements are made and how important quality is to us,” said company president, Charles C. DuBois. “The turnout was amazing, and I personally enjoyed having the opportunity to meet many of our guests.”
Standard Process had vowed to match all donations collected during the open house for the Palmyra Food Pantry. The company will be making a $500 donation to the food pantry.
Standard Process has manufactured whole food supplements that provide specific, nutritional support to humans and animals for 83 years. The company broke ground on a 90,000 square foot facility on June 16, 1987, in the Village of Palmyra’s industrial park. Twenty-five years later, the plant is 286,000 square feet and 308 employees distribute over 12 million bottles of supplements a year to health care professional customers throughout the United States.
