Jason Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1980 by Dr. William Vitale MD with a primary aim to develop and manufacture of a weight loss plan that became the Medifast Products and Programs. Jason Pharmaceuticals was a true family business with the son (Jim Vitale) and daughter (Susan Boone) of Dr Vitale working alongside their father.
Jason Pharmaceuticals, Inc., produces over 80% of the Medifast products in a new $3.4 million food and pharmaceutical-grade plant in Owings Mills, Maryland. The facilities are subject to regulations and inspections mandated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Maryland State Department of Health and Hygiene and Baltimore County Department of Health ensuring that quality control, manufacturing processes, equipment and labeling all meet the required standard.
