There Is a Holistic Synergy in Everything We Do

At Standard Process, we go to great lengths to fulfill our mission of changing lives – from cultivating nutrient-dense soil on our certified organic farm to formulating new products at our Nutrition Innovation Center. Our unwavering focus on quality and testing allows us to manage the purity, safety, and consistency of our supplements. We stand by our quality by ensuring what goes into our products every step of the way with our vertically integrated processes. We then work with our practitioners to ensure the best outcomes for their patients.

Good Health Comes from Good Nutrition

From our inception, Dr. Royal Lee recognized the negative impact the Standard American Diet had on overall health. He believed that processed foods depleted our food sources of the rich nutrition once found in them. He understood that good health comes from good nutrition, and the best nutrition comes from whole foods. Dr. Lee dedicated his life to perfecting the production of whole food-based supplements from the soil used to grow crops to the manufacturing processes used to create the supplement – Standard Process has always focused on putting vitality into every bottle.

Charlie DuBois

President & CEO

Charlie DuBois started his career at Standard Process in 1983 doing various summer jobs, including hand-weeding the beet fields on the farm. In 1986, while studying electrical engineering at Marquette University (Marquette), Charlie had the opportunity to help design the Standard Process manufacturing plant in Palmyra. He graduated from Marquette in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering and joined Standard Process full time in 1989 as a plant engineer. Charlie spent the next several years managing the engineering side of the production facility. In 1993, he became Executive Vice President until 1995 when he was elected President by the Board of Directors. In 1996, the DuBois family became the third generation to own Standard Process, with Charlie carrying on the legacy of his great uncle, Dr. Royal Lee. 

Charlie completed his Master of Science in engineering management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering in 1998. He is honored to lead a company that is committed to carrying out Dr. Royal Lee's whole food philosophy so that health care professionals and their patients will continue to receive the best in whole food nutrition.

The Future of Standard Process

From Dr. Royal Lee down to Charlie DuBois, Standard Process has been family-owned for over 90 years. It will continue on with the next generation of DuBois children.
