The innovative findahealthstore.co.uk campaign has secured Viridian Nutrition a top award.
The recent initiative featured initially on London buses in March, then through national print titles, including The Big Issue and was designed to raise the profile of health food stores.
The campaign won the award for Best Marketing Campaign 2015 at the recent Natural & Organic Products Europe show.
“This winning campaign was designed to drive more shoppers into specialist health stores, as their continued success is intrinsic to Viridian’s success,” commented Steve Hasler, Marketing Director.
Dominic Roberjot, of Natural & Organic Products Europe, added: “This award was voted for by a panel of industry experts who were looking for genuine creativity in conveying a positive reflection of the natural health industry.”
Power Health Products has been announced as the sole distributor of New Era Mineral Cell Salts.
The original ‘FastMelt’ tissue salt formula is back in the UK and Ireland following an absence of almost three years.
New Era was the market leader until it disappeared from the shelves of British health stores and pharmacies in 2013, but Power Health has confirmed it is bringing the range back to the UK as a food supplement. The range includes 12 Single Mineral Cell Salts and 18 Combination Mineral Cell Salt formulations, all with distinct benefits. Consumers can self-select products to treat minor ailments such as Combination H for Hayfever, Q for Catarrh and B for Nerves.
The products were developed in the late 19th century by Dr Wilhelm Schuessler, but EU legislation and the sale of New Era to its Italian distributor led to them being withdrawn from the UK.
A new event being held in Manchester has attracted much industry interest.

Exclusively for independent health food retailers, The Natural Health Trade Summit will include a retail networking area, one-to-one workshops as well as an exhibition featuring some of the UK’s biggest suppliers.

The founder of Vitabiotics has been honoured with the HFMA’s Maurice Hanssen Award of Honour.
The Health Food Manufacturers’ Association announced Dr Kartar Lalvani OBE as the deserving winner of this year’s accolade for his passion and innovation in helping to shape the industry throughout his professional life.
Kartar came to the UK in 1956, graduating from the Chelsea College of Pharmacy, before gaining his doctorate from Bonn University. He founded Vitabiotics in 1971, launching Omega-H3 capsules, one of the first truly comprehensive multivitamins, and the first supplement from the company.
This is not the first accolade for Karter; he has previously been awarded the OBE for services to healthcare and his extensive and varied charity work, including Wellbeing of Women, BLISS, The National Osteoporosis Society, and The British Heart Foundation. He is a Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, and Honorary Professor of leading French University, Franche Comté, part of Europe’s oldest 900 year-old medical institute in Besançon.
HFMA Executive Director, Graham Keen, commented: “In our 50th anniversary year, the HFMA Council was unanimous in its choice of this year’s very worthy winner. Kartar, who is now well into his 80s, shows no sign of slowing down or reducing his support or great passion for the industry that he clearly loves so much.”
Kartar added: “I am deeply grateful and humbled to receive this great honour and would like to thank the HFMA for its kind consideration and recognition. It indeed means a great deal to me personally to receive such a prestigious award, especially in this 50th anniversary year of the HFMA and from the industry that I care so passionately about. Thank you once again and the very best of luck to the HFMA for the next 50 years!”
