    Overview

    Havea Group is a leader in the Natural Consumer Healthcare industry in Europe. It manufactures, designs and distributes a wide range of products from functional and natural food supplements, to natural personal care products for babies and women through its world class plant in France. Havea is well positioned due to its multi-distribution channel strategy and owns several well-known brands including Vitarmonyl, Biolane, Manhaé, Ultrabiotique, Naturémoi and acquired Aragan / Synactifs and Suvéal Duo brands in 2017 and 2018 respectively to strengthen Havea's presence in the pharmacy channel.

    Since inception, Havea has grown at a double digit rate each year organically and is well positioned to benefit from the consolidation taking place in this highly fragmented market and will continue to expand its international footprint in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
