Behind the brand – Jarrow
When and how did Jarrow start as a company?
Jarrow Formulas® was founded in 1977 in Los Angeles by Jarrow L. Rogovin. Jarrow would personally deliver orders of his supplements to the doorsteps of local health food stores in the early 1980s, and ran his own store as well. Jarrow’s early formulations earned the company a reputation for producing innovative and efficacious supplements at a time when the health benefits of dietary supplements were just beginning to be recognized. In a few short years, demand grew for the small company’s supplements. Since that time, Jarrow Formulas® has grown from a handful of products to hundreds of nutritional formulations, many of which were first for the dietary supplement industry. In 2000, Jarrow Industries, Inc. was stabled to be the main manufacture for Jarrow Formulas®. Today, Jarrow Formulas’ products are available worldwide in countries throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. From a California based pioneer to an internationally known premier brand with millions of consumers.
