A family story
Guy Michaud, Genacol®’s founder, is the architect behind the best collagen for joint health on the market! In the mid-1990s, a research and development company located in Montreal discovered the virtues of collagen hydrolysate as natural supplement to improve joint health.
In October 2000, Genacol® Original Formula, made of 100% Genacol®’s AminoLock® Collagen was launched. Very quickly, this innovative product was an indisputable success because of it’s effective results on joint health. It became only a few years later a leader of its category.
Over the years, Genacol® was recipient of several important awards such as the “Entrepreneur of the Year Ernst and Young” award in the “Health and Science”category and has also received the first position in health in the magazine Profit 100 for its progress between 2004 and 2009.
Genacol®, proud leader in its field for more than 17 years, continues to innovate, with the goal of offering its customers effective, new products. With three independent scientific studies demonstrating the beneficial effects of its proprietary AminoLock® Collagen, Genacol® filed a patent application in Canada and the United States in early 2017.
Although their products are now available in over 40 countries, Genacol® remains a human-size family owned company dedicated to the well-being of customers through their joint health.
With Martin Vidal, President and Chief Executive Officer and Guy Michaud’s sons now leading the company, they now focuses on the international market, research and development of new innovative natural health products, making Genacol® the number one collagen brand for joint health company in the world!
