Health, research and innovation

One of the greatest challenges we face is the growing proportion of us who are of overweight. If this trend continues approximately half of the world’s population will be overweight by 2030, according to a report by the McKinsey Global Institute. At the same time, we see a fitness wave with an increasing number of exercisers taking part in distance running or spending their leisure time hiking in the mountains.

Orkla Health offers products that meet specific health needs at any age in one’s life; whether it’s to give cod liver oil to a child or taking extra vitamins or minerals adapted to your needs as you get older.

In order to develop new products, we have a team of nutritionists and product designers in Norway and Denmark. They closely monitor current research both nationally and internationally. We also work with external health researchers in the Nordic countries. This principally concerns omega-3, sports nutrition, and the challenges related to stiff joints.

The introduction of any new product is preceded by a long and demanding process. Our team works on the leading edge to find the right raw materials and safe suppliers. We also ensure that our health claims are documented and that the products are labelled in accordance with the applicable regulations.

Our work is guided by our vision: “Healthy living made easier!”
