Makers Nutrition is the premiere all-in-one dietary supplement partner. We handle supplement manufacturing, label design, packaging, and order fulfillment for companies of all sizes, from startups to well-known celebrity brands. Without the solid foundation fostered through better communication between management and all departments, none of the absolute success or clients have experienced would have been possible. We now take better care of our employees and our clients than ever before. Our profit-share 401k system provides 5% payment into a fund for each employee regardless of the employee's choice to participate at all. By funding our employees' future, our team can sleep more soundly, knowing they have a plan--and a safe one at that. Founder and CEO Jason Provenzano understands there is more to life than work. A family man himself, Mr. Provenzano wants every employee to have a good work-life balance, which is why we do not work weekends and maintain a set schedule. He makes a point to plan company outings so his team can enjoy events such as bowling night and major league baseball games, transportation and food provided (pre-COVID). Even during COVID-19, we have managed to create in-office events like a socially distanced Halloween costume contest and a Thanksgiving food drive with some added friendly competition. We donated over $30,000 worth of immune system supporting dietary supplements to Feed The Hungry, a non-profit organization that distributes nutrition to those who need help in over 94 nations. We did not want stop there because we knew as an essential business, we had an opportunity to make an impact. Friends of Karen, another non-profit we have proudly given to twice prior, is dear to our hearts. This charity provides supplies for families of children who are terminally ill. 2020 may have been the last year of life for many of the children whose families did not have the means to provide what they wish they could. That is why, while we may have otherwise given toys and physical items, we gave $500 worth of gift cards to play our part safely for five special families.
