Nellson, the leading full-service nutrition bar and powder provider in North America, continues its forward movement in the world of nutrition, with the addition of a new high-speed production line in its Lachine, Quebec nutritional bar manufacturing facility and the unification of the Canadian operations in Lachine and Anjou, Quebec under the leadership of Jean Filion, former CEO of MultiBar and current President Nellson Canada. This investment enables the nutrition bar co-manufacturer to meet and exceed the needs of North American bar manufacturers’ brands.

Jean Filion said, “It was important to us that we bring our Canadian operations together under one management, as it combines two great teams to share best practices, accelerates decision-making, and, together with the capital investment, strengthens our value creation potential.”  Filion added, “I am extremely excited by the potential of the Canadian team with its wealth of knowledge and commitment to innovation. Like our entire Nellson team, our Canadian bar team relentlessly seeks improvement to surpass our clients’ expectations in terms of service, quality and cost.”

Jamie Better, Nellson LLC’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “The unification of our Canadian operations under Jean’s leadership is another step in Nellson’s transformation over the past 18 months. This leadership change and the capital investment demonstrates our commitment to knowledge sharing and continuous improvement in all areas of the company. 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.”
