We believe in innovation not just for innovation’s sake, but in sourcing products to fulfil our customers’ health and wellbeing needs from the comfort of their high street. In 2015, we set out our aim to become the UK’s largest Free From retailer with the launch of the largest Free From food range available in the UK and the country’s first ever Free From concept store –Holland & Barrett More.
Catering for the needs of the estimated 10 million of food allergy and intolerance sufferers in Britain, our proposition listed 600 Free From products at launch with the aim to go on to list 3,000 products, covering all the main Free From categories defined in legislation, from gluten and dairy free through to nut, egg and fish allergies.
This wasn’t just a business move for us. One of the drivers for the new proposition was the personal experience of our former CEO Peter Aldis whose son has a nut allergy. This experience prompted Holland & Barrett to partner with national charity Allergy UK, which campaigns to ensure allergy is not a forgotten condition, and provides advice, information and support to people with allergies and food intolerance.
There are a total of 1,368 Holland & Barrett stores around the world, with a presence in 16 country markets. The majority of our portfolio is based in the UK with 715 owned stores. We also own stores in Belgium (20), Sweden (4), Holland (182) and the Republic of Ireland (52) all of which have fully supporting websites. The remainder of our portfolio comprises franchised stores and store-in-stores.
Our rapid international expansion has been driven by a combination of franchising and acquisition. Our first acquisition, of the De Tuinen chain (67 stores, now 182) in the Netherlands was made in 2003 and our first overseas franchise was agreed in 2008. We subsequently acquired Belgium’s health and wellness chain Essenza (13 stores, now 20) in 2013. Both of these businesses operate under the Holland & Barrett brand. We opened our first owned store in Sweden in 2015 and in the same year celebrated ours 100th franchised store opening, in the city of Taiyuan in China and Saudi Arabia

Shipping information about Saudi Arabia

Please visit the official government website for more information about the new value-added tax.
Due to the difference in the exchange rate of currencies, orders that almost reach the permissible limit for taxes and customs duties may be imposed on them, where the transfer price from the date of placing the order may differ from the transfer price when the order is cleared from customs.
We kindly ask you to check with Saudi Customs about the conditions for importing products and if there are any other required licenses or declarations.
