Swisse is an Australian success story. It all began with founder Kevin Ring in a humble Melbourne warehouse in 1969. From the outset, our mission was embedded in the Swisse DNA – a dream to make people all over the world healthier and happier.
That vision is well on the way to becoming a reality. For over 40 years, Swisse has been investing in products formulated with premium quality ingredients based on traditional evidence and scientific research.
Today, the Swisse product range stretches from top selling men’s and women’s multivitamins and dietary supplements, to sports nutrition, skincare and functional foods. Swisse products are currently available in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom, with plans to launch in 30 countries in the next five years.
We believe that health is the most important thing in all of our lives. It underpins everything else that matters, like friends, family, career and all of our dreams. Around the Swisse office, the concept of “health and happiness” is discussed so often that it has been shortened to ‘H&H’. At Swisse, everything has to pass the ‘H&H test’.
At Swisse, we pride ourselves on the development and manufacture of scientifically validated products that assist in maintaining optimal health and wellbeing.
