Our heritage can be traced back to 1865, with our long established presence as a producer of health supplements which cemented our position as the UK’s leading nutritional supplement manufacturer.

Our History

Born in 1865 as English Grains, we started out supplying grains to the brewing industry, before progressing to manufacturing yeast tablets from grain by-products.

In 1969 a tablet making division was established and began producing a range of nutritional and herbal supplements.

In 1996, we constructed our purpose-built facility in Swadlincote.

In 2014, to support our continued growth we opened a second facility just 500m from our main site.

In December 2016, we became of the IVC family which has seen us invest significantly in our facilities, people and infrastructure to underpin our capacity for future growth.
