From the Ground Up
Back in 2005, we decided to expand our parent company HTC Group and grow into the world of health supplements, inspired by the excellent provision of our suppliers. Our first products were Propolis and Evening Primrose Oil, the latter remaining one of our most popular items today.
Over the years, the company has grown to become the UK’s leading importers of bulk health supplement with a wide range of products and an established network of suppliers. Today, our customers include large retailers, distributors, small independent businesses, practitioners and web shops.
Being one of the most reputable suppliers within VMS category, we have won ‘Health Supplements Wholesaler of the Year 2017 – Hertfordshire’ and ‘Sports Nutrition Specialists of the year 2018’ in Acquisition International’s Business Excellence Awards.

During HTC’s 40 year lifetime, we’ve had many highs, including winning our first government tenders or signing up clients like Holland and Barrett, but we’ve also had lows, the early demise of thress family members, which was a great loss to the family and the business.
