Many people buy dietary supplements without further thinking. It is impossible to assess with human senses, if a dietary supplement contain what is promised and is it safe to use. At Aarja, we want to do things right and be transparent. Therefore, we only make products that we use ourselves and to be 100% sure of their quality.
made by US
All Aarja Health® products are manufactured in our own factory in Finland. Our FSSC 22000 certified production and highly skilled team with 40 years of experience ensures that every product batch is safely made with love and without compromise. We value skill and quality in all our operations and at every step from material selection to finished products.
Quality is our number one priority. Our quality control system includes analysis of raw materials and end products, written and pre-approved manufacturing and packaging instructions, operating instructions and cleaning instructions, real-time batch documentation, change management, production facility control and complete product traceability to material suppliers and vice versa.
“Instead of quality control, we should talk about a quality control system or quality assurance. Quality control means only analysis."
Our factory has an FSSC 22000 (Food safety system certification), which includes both ISO 22000 standard, technical specifications for food production and additional FSSC requirements. At its core, is the manufacturing of safe products. We sample all received raw materials to make sure our raw materials are what they should be. Connected to a computer, the FTIR scanner detects raw materials at a chemical level through infrared radiation. We also check that the raw material packages are intact, have the correct labels and that the appearance and composition of the raw materials match our reference samples.
We believe that you should know where and how your food supplements are made.
Meet Our Aarja Team
Håkon, CEO & founder
"In my life and career, I have relied on my instincts and the belief that people have a responsibility to do good things. I believe that creating Aarja Health to support all our wellbeing and to make a difference in our quality of life is probably the best gift I can give to others. What comes to health, we all need to take the responsibility for our own choices and actions. I'm thankful for this opportunity to make the best products together with a dedicated team to help people live happier lives through nature's inherent goodness."
Elisabeth, Brand Manager & founder
"I believe in a holistic approach to healing. What is on your mind, what is on your dinner plate, how much do you use your body, and spending time outside in nature, and of course - supplements that works. At least I have finally found true healing when all of these aspects are in place. Why do we eat food? To get essential vitamins and minerals, so that our body works properly. But when the food is of bad quality, then we definitely need extra supplementation"
Diego, Product Design & founder
"I love Aarja's products! Each of our products goes through a very strict quality process, so you really can trust that they are premium quality. On a personal level, I have been always thinking about what is best for my family when I have bought supplements. When we started creating Aarja's products I always asked myself: can I feel proud of this combination? Is it truly efficient and 100% clean? Are these really the best ingredients we can get? Now, I can proudly say definitely YES on all Aarja's products. You must try them!"
