Proprietary Nutritionals Inc. (PNI), a subsidiary of Pharmachem Laboratories Inc., develops and markets patented, scientifically proven ingredients to the nutraceutical industry. Founded in 2000, the company canvasses the nutraceutical industry for ingredients that are ripe for brand building. The goal for President Dean Mosca is to make PNI a premier marketer of branded ingredients by building strong relationships with marketers, suppliers and manufacturers in the nutraceutical marketplace.
Once PNI formalizes a partnership with a client, it works to fully develop the identity of the product from the conception stage, including logos and trademarks. In addition, PNI helps companies develop the appropriate trade and retail tools to educate potential clients about the product and how to sell it. Once distribution has been established, a consumer awareness program is put in place utilizing print, broadcast and online media.
