“Our Canadian operations are a critical component of our bi-coastal platform which enables us to provide best-in-class product development and manufacturing capabilities, exceptional speed of execution, and outstanding customer service to our clients. The acquisition of MultiBar and NBTY’s Anaheim CA powder manufacturing facility and nutritional bar operating assets positions Nellson as the unequivocal leader in nutritional bar and powder co-manufacturing in North America,”​ said Nellson CEO Jamie Better.
