Winners Of

  • 2021 International Trade

Natures Aid, acquired by STADA in 2016, is aiming for 50% of its sales to be from export markets by the end of 2023 following its selection as a winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

The Lancashire-based company, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary, has been recognised for the exceptionally rapid growth of its export business, which currently stands at approximately 30% of overall sales.

The company’s heartland is its independent health retail customers in the UK. However in 2011, due to an increase in demand from overseas customers for quality British-made supplements, the business started to distribute the Natures Aid brand to pharmacy and retail partners around the world.

Just 10 years later, the business now has a distribution network in over 50 countries, focused on international pharmacies and independent retailers throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. This expansion has also been accelerated as a result of Natures Aid partnering with STADA affiliates in key export regions. Natures Aid’s two biggest export markets are Mongolia and Singapore.

Chris Morrey, Managing Director, says: “In just 10 years we have built a distribution network of more than 50 countries, and it’s fantastic that this achievement has been recognised with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

“This award will further elevate the strong position we have in our international markets and help us remain on track to achieve 50% of sales from export by 2023, whilst navigating the challenges of the pandemic.”

Natures Aid has been manufacturing and supplying high quality nutritional supplements for four decades. Established in 1981, it has become one of the UK’s favourite brands of vitamins, supplements and herbal products. With approximately 75 new products launched over the past three years, the company has grown to offer a comprehensive portfolio of more than 200 natural health supplements.

Acquired by STADA Arzneitmittel AG in 2016, Natures Aid manufactures to GMP and Pharmaceutical Standards from its state-of-the-art 43,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Preston.
