Walgreens brand vitamins and supplements will now carry the UL Verified mark. This means the products’ nutritional and supplement facts panel are now verified by UL, and marks the first time the UL Verified Mark will appear on vitamin and supplement packaging.
The mark is the outcome of successful objective and independent verification informed by facility audits and product testing to verify the accuracy of the supplement and nutritional facts panel. In order to build trust and reinforce transparency with its consumers, each UL verified product will have a unique identifier number consumers can use to understand the verification methodology described on the publicly available UL Verify database.
"Consumers want to trust what is in the product they are taking, while retailers need to provide that trust and assurance," said Doug Lockard, vice president and general manager of UL's Retail and Consumer Products group, in a press release. "UL's Verified Mark creates trust based on independent, credible proof regarding a product's ingredients. Walgreens investment in earning UL's Verified Mark demonstrates its commitment to delivering quality products. We thank them for putting their trust in UL to help them deliver on that promise.”
"Trust is core to any relationship, and we believe ingredient transparency is very important," added Luke Rauch, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer at Walgreens. "That's why we worked with UL to obtain objective and independent third-party verification for the ingredients in our dietary supplements and vitamins. With this new verification, you can trust that our vitamins contain exactly what is listed on the nutritional and supplement facts panel, building on our reputation as a trusted name in health and wellness.”
