Holland & Barrett International is one of the world’s leading health and wellness retailers and the largest in Europe, supplying its customers with a wide range of vitamins, minerals, health supplements, specialist foods and natural beauty products. With over 145 years of experience in the industry, our name is a familiar sight in almost every major city and town across the UK and is becoming increasingly more visible further afield, in markets as diverse as the Netherlands and Malta to the UAE, China and India.
We are particularly proud of our extensive specialist training programme which is unparalleled in the health supplement industry. Under our own unique ‘Natural Health Academy’, our associates are able to gain qualifications in the provision of health advice which are to ‘A’ level equivalent standard and officially recognised by the UK Government’s ‘Education Development International’ programme. This is the first recognised training scheme to cover health on the high street, and associates are fully trained in understanding product safety and contraindications for products, for example use during pregnancy. Our commitment means customers can confidently have access to clear and concise information to help them make informed product choices to match their needs.
We have recently introduced our healthy experts training allowing our associates to further specialise in key areas such as sports nutrition, natural beauty, supplements or food.
Our sights are firmly set on being numero uno when it comes to spreading health and happiness around the world.
And we’re well on our way.
