Nutrition & Santé


A carve-out from Novartis, Nutrition & Santé was one of the leading European manufacturers and marketers of specialised dietary food products. At the time of Abénex’s acquisition, the business operated mainly in France, but also had sites in Iberia, Italy and the Benelux. Its products were categorised into four primary groups: health and functional food, slimming, specialty nutrition and sports nutrition. Nutrition & Santé primarily distributed its products via three distinctive channels: supermarkets, pharmacies and specialist nutrition shops.
