It was an evening for a double celebration for the company as Viridian Collagen Pro Factors scooped Best New Supplement Product 2024. 

MD Cheryl was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by Martin Last, director general of the Health Food Manufacturing Association. 

Cheryl ‘fell in love’ with the natural products movement while working in specialist health food stores and became interested in nutrition and food supplements, launching Viridian in 1999. The family run company is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the industry. Commenting on the award, she said: “The natural and organic sector is an industry I love. I am truly passionate and feel privileged to be able to help others to better health and wellness. Although we are all living longer, there’s still many people with chronic illnesses, and it’s our responsibility to take care of our own health and help take care of others, which is my mission. I feel very honoured to receive this award.”
