In 1995, we began as a direct-to-consumer mail order business with only three products: Creatine 6000-ES, Acetabolan, and the original Hydroxycut formula.
Only a year later, we launched our Wholesale Retail Division. Our products flew off the shelves of some of the biggest vitamin and health retailers across the country. More and more people experienced success with our products, resulting in several product launches, and ultimately, a substantial growth in our company. At this time of explosive growth, our company was headquartered in Mississauga where we had two head offices over the years.
In January of 2008, Iovate Health Sciences International moved to a state-of-the-art office building in beautiful Oakville, Ontario. With the move, our company grew even more, expanding our departments, product lines, and valuable corporate partnerships with companies like Walmart, Walgreens, and Sam’s Club.
