Workforce Challenge

Wise Woman Herbals (WWH) manufactures and distributes whole herb dietary and health supplements. Due to changes in regulations, several key products were designated by the FDA as "Over the Counter" Pharmaceutical Drugs. In order to continue production in 2010, WWH would need training to become an FDA regulated manufacturer. In addition, the company needed to become compliant with FDA Good Manufacturing Practices and Canada's Natural Health Products Directorate in order to increase market share.

Workforce Solution

The Lane Workforce Partnership provided matching funds for Wise Woman Herbal to quickly train and certify all 21 of its employees in these regulatory compliance areas.

Outcomes & Benefits

"The employer workforce training grant [from LWP] enabled Wise Woman Herbals to achieve compliance with new U.S. and Canadian federal regulations and as a direct result we were able to expand our market overseas and add five jobs," stated Patrish Koenig, vice president of Wise Woman Herbals.
