Northern Europe's First Solgar Dedicated Online Vitamin Store Opened

Eskilstuna, Sweden (PressExposure) December 21, 2009 -- Solgar Vitamin & Herb Company Inc, USA has been innovating and producing fine quality nutritional supplements since 1947. As a globally recognized manufacturer, Solgar products are distributed throughout the world in over 45 different countries. Solgar’s nutritional supplements products was first introduced to the Scandinavian market through its danish distributor Solgar Nordic in 1997. Over the years, the Solgar brand has gradually become known to consumers in this region.

Solgar’s supplement range consists of over 485+ different products. Many of the local health food shops, found it nearly impossible to keep all the products in stock, especially amidst all the other brands that their customers demanded. Unfortunately, this lead to a great frustration, as some customers found it very difficult to get a hold of the specific Solgar product they required, as they were often not in stock.

The solution to this problem was quite simple. The only way to do the vast Solgar products range justice, was to open a health food store completely dedicated to only selling and promoting the Solgar brand. Vitamin Pharmacy Scandinavia was founded in spring 2009 to meet this particular need. However, as Daniel Forslund (MD) soon noticed, a physical health food shop was not enough to meet the growing demand for Solgar’s wide range of products. Many consumers in Scandinavia live in very small, rural and remote areas, where health food stores are not available. There was an increasing demand to make the entire Solgar range available online, in order to enable consumers to make postal orders.

On December 10th 2009, was finally completed and launced in Sweden. The website has been awarded with the Solgar Etailer Seal of Approval. This online webshop is an extension of the company’s physical health food store, but now makes it possible for consumers to place orders from all over Sweden and Scandinavia. The webshop is mult-lingual and caters to all the local languages in this region, and purchases can be made from any of the local currencies.

Vitamin Pharmacy Scandinavia is very proud to be a reseller of Solgar Nordic. Solgar has been manufacturing fine quality nutritional supplements for over 60 years in an industry that is constantly changing. Throughout these changes, Solgar has never lost sight of their original mission - to provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products and information to help promote optimal health. Their attention to detail from manufacturing through distribution has enabled them to set, maintain, and continually raise the Gold Standardâ„¢ for quality nutritional supplements, education, and service.

Solgar is known globally for producing innovative, science-based, nutritional supplements products. All Solgar products have been thoroughly researched and meet the standards for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Solgar's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility meets pharmaceutical standards for machinery, procedures, quality control, and environmentalism. The majority of products are delivered in 100 % recyclable glass bottles.

What makes the Solgar range unique, is that it also caters towards the needs of specialist diet requirements in the community. Most Solgar products are gluten free and several products are now being launched that are both Kosher & Halal Certified. Solgar has also introduced sugar, salt, and starch-free supplements and strives to eliminate preservatives, artificial flavors and colors from their formulas. Solgar was also one of the first nutritional supplement companies to switch to aqueous-based coating for improved disintegration, dissolution, and absorption of nutrients. In 1999 Solgar introduced its first certified Non-GMO (Not Genetically Modified) soy product.

Vitamin Pharmacy’s ongoing goal will be to provide Scandinavian consumers with Solgar’s top-quality, innovative, science-based nutritional supplements to enhance their total health and well-being.
