Health and wellness brand Shaklee Corp. has announced the official opening of its new Dr. Forest C. Shaklee Global Innovation Center, located near the company’s headquarters in Pleasanton, California.

The state-of-the-art facility will house Shaklee’s entire R&D department, including more than 50 scientists. The center’s namesake, Dr. Shaklee, is the founder of the company and a pioneer in the development of the multivitamin—a foundational product for Shaklee since its creation in 1956. As its name implies, the Global Innovation Center will focus on product innovations, as well as testing and quality control.

“The new Global Innovation Center will allow for collaboration and promote the use of technology and research to help improve the health span of people all over the world,” said Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, Nobel Prize Laureate and Shaklee Corp. Scientific Adviser, on hand during the center’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In the development of its nutrition, household, and personal-care products, Shaklee has published more than 90 peer-reviewed studies in scientific journals. The company also fosters open innovation by partnering with leading scientists and university programs to discover nutritional trends and technologies.
