Turning Your Nutrition Product IDEA in to a Sellable Product

Have you created a product or written a book that you’re ready to take on to the next step? Being around so many dietitians all the time, we know that many of you have great talent, are very creative and have the drive to create a product aimed at helping people live healthier lives!

At NCES, one of our proudest reputations is that of helping dietitians create the products that they dream of creating. NCES was actually started as a way to distribute a book that had been written by a dietitian who needed an outlet for distributing her book. We have continued that tradition throughout the years as we create and select new products to bring to you at NCEScatalog.com. Roughly 35% of our current vendors are other dietitians that we are proud to work with and support.

Our production team will help no matter where you’re at in the creation process. With our team of dietitians, writers and graphic designers, we’ll help you take your idea from concept to creation. We also provide access to our extensive network of printers, illustrators, packaging specialists and much more.

Lastly, we help you with distribution through NCEScatalog.com and related media outlets. Currently, our combined social media reach is approximately 36,000 nutrition professionals.

Unlike many in this industry, whose success is based solely on selling their own products, NCES is proud to support other dietitians. From carrying products created by other dietitians, like “Super 15” and “Lipo Visuals” to helping dietitians make their dreams a reality, like we were fortunate to be able to do with “Lainy’s Polite Bite”, we love having the opportunity to work with dietitians from across the country and across different specialties.

If you have an idea you’d like to work with us on, please email Carrie Mark or give her a call today at 877.623.7266. Carrie will work with you to get started on your project right away.

I think I’ve said enough about this for one day! But, before you go, listen to what Emma Fogt has to say about it all! Emma wrote the children’s book “Lainy’s Polite Bite” and worked with NCES to turn her story in to a bookshelf worthy book that is now selling at NCEScatalog.com.
