Case studies

Holland & Barrett has firmly established its place as the UK’s leading retailer of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements.

Its green branded stores are a familiar site in most major towns and cities across the UK and Ireland – and are popping up more and more across the globe.

Based in Nuneaton, the company is a real success story for Warwickshire and the Midlands and is deep in the middle of a major expansion that will secure its long-term future in the region.
