Nature’s Own independent health store initiative

Submitted by on March 24, 2017 – 11:55 amNo Comment

Nature’s Own, the pioneers of food-based nutritional supplements in the UK, has recently taken the unprecedented decision to close its online and telephone sales direct to customers. The Nature’s Own website is now an information-only space for members of the public to locate their nearest stockist.
The unique Food State™ and Wholefood health supplements brand is now solely stocked in independent health stores, and their online stores, across the UK. Nature’s Own is no longer available for purchase online or over the phone via the brand’s website.
As part of the initiative to support independent health stores, the Nature’s Own packaging has been refreshed, in line with the bright new future ahead of the brand. The new look bottles were filtered in to stores throughout February and March.

David Barrie, health food sales manager at Nature’s Own commented: “We have taken the decision to only supply direct because we believe in the future of the high street, and the independent health stores, who have successfully adapted to changing trends over the decades. With our products now solely available in these stores, we continue to be one of the most unique health supplements companies in the UK. I am delighted that we now offer a dedicated, one-to-one service for our independent retailers.”
The science-based company pioneered food-based health supplements in the UK in 1980, which now comprises of the popular Food State™ and Wholefood ranges.
Nature’s Own was founded by two idealists who strived for better forms of nutrition, in a genuine desire to help the well-being of the nation. Since then, more than 36 years ago, the company has grown by both word of mouth and satisfied customer referrals.
David added: “Our roots are in independent trade and our mission has always been to impart knowledge to individuals, in order that they are empowered to make informed choices in the field of nutrition. We feel that to directly stock independent businesses only is the best way to continue with the Nature’s Own brand, ethos and trade.”
The Nature’s Own website can be accessed via www.natures-own.co.uk. If you are a stockist and your details are not on the website, please contact David via email (david@natures-own.co.uk) or telephone 01684 312006.
