Vermont Business Magazine In 2012, Procter & Gamble, one of the world's largest and most profitable consumer-goods companies, entered the US nutritional supplement market by acquiring Brattleboro-based New Chapter, founded by Paul and Barbi Schulick. New Chapter is known for its healing-driven mission and one-of-a-kind vitamin and herbal formulations. After six years of working with P&G, the Schulicks announced today that as of July 1, 2018, they have parted ways with the company they launched more than thirty-five years ago, citing essential differences in vision and strategy.
Until now, Paul Schulick has led innovation and formulation of the 60+ products in the New Chapter formulary, staying firm to his codified principles that respect nature's wisdom and herbal synergy. A pioneer in whole food fermentation and supercritical extraction, Schulick has been a leading figure in the Natural Products Industry
Barbi Schulick has been a steward of the New Chapter mission and culture, dedicated to coaching and growing leaders according to the values that governed the successful business from the start.
"Our cultural values were informed by what we put in the bottle—a promise of healing and transparency," she said. "Within those same values, our workplace thrived. Our name, New Chapter, arose from our vow to always make an optimal and truly innovative contribution to the marketplace. We weren't interested in being a redundant brand."
The Schulicks are grateful to P&G for what they brought to New Chapter over the past six years, mostly in regard to strong scientific support for the efficacy and quality of the original products. "We have many dear friends at New Chapter and wish them good fortune," said Barbi Schulick.
The couple is currently putting their entrepreneurial energy into a new venture to be revealed over the coming months.
"Our commitment to purity and healing is as strong as it was thirty-five years ago," said Paul Schulick. "We look forward to discovering more ways to serve nature's wisdom."
