Meet the Founder
“Be firm with your goals but flexible with your methods.”
This is the motto founder and CEO of Salaam Nutritionals, Ms. Saimah lives by as her company’s product line grows – reaching more families day by day.
She got her start in the halal multivitamin business in 2013 while researching alternative forms of gummy-based vitamins for kids. Because of her background as a residency trained pharmacist, other Muslim parents were constantly asking her which brands of vitamins their kids could take.
For years, gummy bears and vitamins had been made with [non-halal] gelatin. For decades there was no real push for manufactures to create products to meet the dietary needs of Muslim consumers until Salaam Nutritionals.
“Never take ‘no’ for answer,” she says, “and always look for alternate ways to create opportunity.” Since the company launched in 2015 the product line expanded from exclusively kids based vitamins to an adult line with the first ever halal gummy prenatal vitamin.
