Healthy Stuff invests in new lab

Castle Donington-based Healthy Stuff has invested in a new £250,000 lab as part of an “aggressive” investment strategy that has already paid dividends throughout the pandemic.

The new lab will allow the health testing company to increase its testing capacity by 300% and reduce the demand for staff supervision by enabling it to run 24-hour testing.

While many other companies have been forced to scale back spending over the past 12 months, Healthy Stuff has continued to invest, resulting in profits growing.

Managing director Jason Wootton said: “We have rapidly become a global market leader in allergy and intolerance testing. We continue to develop new health tests available to people easily and affordably from our state-of-the-art laboratory and exclusive technology platform.”

Established in 2008, the health testing company has helped more than 450,000 people discover their food sensitivities and take steps to improve their relationship with their diet.

Its new lab will also feature airtight technology to prevent the risk of Covd-19 spreading from within the team.

Healthy Stuff, which won the Business Improvement through Technology award at last year’s Derbyshire Business Awards, has also employed a scientific adviser as part of its growth strategy.

Following the release of its new vitamin D test, the role will support further product development – results of which will be released in the coming months.

Jason added: “Our growth has been supported by highly skilled and dedicated team members that ensure our customers receive the very best advice and support through their wellness journey.”
