Standard processing building expansion will house state-of-the-art technology


Members of the standard process team commemorated the inauguration of the new complex.

This investment is just one example of how Standard Process remains at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies that result in the best possible products for our customers.

Standard Process®, a leading whole-food nutritional supplement company based in Palmyra, Wisconsin, opened on April 6, 2022, to mark the start of construction of a 10,000 square foot complex connected to its juice processing building existing on their certified organic farm. The expansion will house a new dryer that uses the gentlest method possible to dehydrate juice squeezed from whole foods while preserving valuable nutrients.

“This investment is just one example of how Standard Process remains at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies that result in the best possible products for our customers,” explained Standard Process President and CEO, Charlie DuBois. “We have remained at the forefront of the nutritional supplement industry for over 90 years, and we are committed to maintaining that standard.”

According to Brandon Metzger, PhD, Technical and Product Development Manager for Standard Process, nutrient retention is key. “We are proud of the company’s organic farm and the use of these nutrient rich crops in our products. From planting to harvest, our goal is to maximize nutrient density, and this new drying process will help us maintain our quality standards,” he said.

“From seed to supplement, the dryer will bring the entire growing, harvesting, juicing and drying process into one operation on the farm,” Metzger added. “This infrastructure improvement will reduce the oxidation that occurs with longer mixing times and eliminate transport to the main plant, which increases efficiency.”

A project of this magnitude does not happen overnight. In fact, the Standard Process project team began researching dryer technology in 2014. As they prepared to undergo one of the biggest changes to their process since the plant was built in 1988, the company took care to select Olivier Construction of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, to lead the construction of the project.

Construction of the new building is expected to be completed by November 2022 and the new dryer ready for the 2023 agricultural season.
