The company was recognized for its innovation, leadership and explosive growth in the nutraceuticals, vitamins and nutritional supplements industry.
“It is an honor to receive this prestigious award and be recognized among so many other entrepreneurial success stories in south Florida,” said Anthony Alfonso, Nutri-Force Nutrition’s President and CEO. “This award is a testament to our outstanding employees and their commitment to the company. They are my inspiration and have become the catalysts that develop unique ideas and continued innovation at Nutri-Force Nutrition.”
With $80 million in annual revenue projected for 2012, Nutri-Force Nutrition currently operates a 250,000 square foot manufacturing plant where they currently have a total of 450 employees. In July of 2012, they opened a $13 million softgel vitamin plant with the capacity of manufacturing 5 billion softgel vitamins annually, one of only a handful of such plants in the entire U.S., where they hope to create over 400 new full time jobs in the next three years. President and CEO Alfonso, a 20-year executive in the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industry with an exemplary track record, attributes the continued growth and innovation to the support of an experienced team of scientists, formulators, and product managers as well as a talented executive team that includes Dan Alhadeff, Chief Operating Officer and Gilberto Diaz, Vice President of Operations.
“As we continue to develop our company through hard work, a clear vision, and a focus on innovation, our goal is not only to gain market share but also to add stable jobs to the community.”

Specializing in business development and growth, Alhadeff has been directly responsible for $350 million in growth within the nutraceutical and health supplement industries. Gilberto Diaz, Vice President of Operations, is responsible for overall manufacturing operations and FDA compliance at Nutriforce. He served as Vice President of Operations at a well-recognized nutritional manufacturer prior to joining Nutriforce where he has increased efficiency by 50% and driven sales in excess of $40 million annually. Diaz was also instrumental in developing custom software solutions where efficiency and product development was maximized through available resources within the manufacturing and formulation processes. For the second year, the South Florida Business Journal partnered with Entrepreneurs Organization South Florida to celebrate entrepreneurs in the tri-county area who have built successful businesses from the ground up. The award criteria profitability, ability to adapt the organization successfully to a challenging economy, leadership and management styles, creative thinking process and passion for what the company does.
