The company is one of the UK’s leading producers of vitamins and dietary supplements. It formulates, manufactures and packs a wide range of vitamin and mineral food supplements in a multitude of formats, for a wide variety of customers. The company now wishes to extend its overseas distribution network through the appointment of long term partners on the basis of a distribution agreement.



Established in 2002, this family-owned UK company manufactures a wide range of vitamin and mineral food supplements, working as both a private label / own label supplier for a variety of customers including large retailers and pharmacy chains and as a producer of its own brands of premium vitamin, mineral and health food supplements.

It has the expertise and capability to produce and supply vitamins in various forms including uncoated / coated tablets, effervescent tablets, chewable tablets, capsules, gummy pastilles, chewable capsules and dextrose chewables. All its products are manufactured in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Food Manufacturing Standards and in the UK are accredited by the British Retail Consortium.

The company’s own brands are sold both within the UK and also internationally. However, the firm is now keen to extend its sales in overseas markets where it believes there is excellent potential for these products. It is therefore seeking distributors, who would represent the company and sell its products, working with the UK company to build up the brand in the appointed territory.
