Back in 2017 Tespo announced the plan to collaborate with manufacturers on its patent pending delivery system, which automatically apportions products for each day of the month in sealed ‘pods’ that can be mixed into water. The system also features WiFi connectivity that helps drive compliance.
The Nature Made collaboration is the first fruit of that program. When Tespo first announced the plan, it was said to be working with MegaFood as a licensee, though a spokesperson from MegaFood told us that the partnership has been discontinued.
Products will add on to Tespo's private label line
Tespo currently offers a variety of its own private label vitamin pods and condition specific supplement products, including products aimed at patients who have had bariatric surgery.
"The launch of the Tespo Licensing Program sets the stage for our most advanced, next generation dispenser, and we're excited to kick off with the industry's leading vitamin brand, Nature Made," said Tespo CEO Ted Mills. "By collaborating with leading nutrition brands, we can deliver on our promise of providing supplements in liquid form without fillers and sugars to help people regardless of their age, potential health condition, or their adversity to pills."
"Tespo's pill-free solution and WiFi connectivity provide a new way for Nature Made consumers to start and maintain a daily vitamin regimen," said Tobe Cohen, EVP and Chief Science, Technology & Innovation Officer at Pharmavite. “We tap all quarters to aid in the generation of new products and solutions. In addition to developing our own products, we aim to be the partner of choice for emerging technologies, brands and services in the health and wellness industry."
