How we work

We create new concepts with enthusiasm, and for each customer we develop successful formulations and solutions for high-quality functional nutrition and food supplements. We will find the optimum, tailor-made solution for you, too.
Our market specialists and nutritionists know which raw materials and active substances are in the trend, what is conducive to health and what tastes good. Together with the food experts they transform innovative and individual ideas into creative products. In this process our experts collaborate closely with the R&D specialists from our sister companies. In the search for the best solutions to meet our customers’ needs we make use of the latest applications technology, comprehensive analytical facilities and flexible pilot plant. After thorough testing, the SternLife products are manufactured at our modern production facilities in North Germany.
