We are so pleased and excited to be coming on board as a patron, renewing our long-term commitment to the industry. The whole team here at A. Vogel are looking forward to working closely with the NAHS and its retail partners to create sustainable solutions to ensure the long-term success and security of the health food industry.”

In a statement, fellow patron Meridian adds: “Having established Meridian as a favourite with health conscious consumers, we recognize the importance of establishing a strong relationship with independent health stores across the UK.”
