Norwich-based Hench Nutrition has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube to raise £300,000 as it prepares to expand its sport nutritional products and accessories.

Hench Nutrition 3The company, which was launched in 2011 by John Horwell, offers a range of premium quality sports nutrition products that have been advertised in various UK publications, including Men’s Health and Muscle & Fitness. Over the past six years, the Hench Nutrition already achieved 2 million in sales, over 30,000 customers and has increased profitability year-on-year from £133,000 net profit in 2014 to £178,000 net profit last year. Earlier this year, the company also opened its new website.

The Hench Nutrition team stated:

“Since Hench Nutrition was founded in November 2011, from a credit card and a spare bedroom, it has seen continued growth and expansion. In this time we have moved premises twice (now operating in our own 5,000 sq ft premises). We have focused massively on new product development and developed over 100 unique product formulations (proprietary) with plans to increase our pipeline of formulations even further. We have invested in pharmaceutical grade production lines and machinery to manufacture a massive selection of products in-house including powders, protein bars, sports gels, promotional sample sachets and lots more.”
