Our in-house manufacturing capability is a key differentiating factor from our competitors.

Our 5,500m facility is located in northern Italy, near Milan. This facility manufactures both our wholly owned Venture Life Brands and Customer Brands, which are sold under the customers’ brand names.

Our 2,600m2 Swedish facility is in Gnesta, south of Stockholm, and manufactures the bacterial vaginosis and moisture gel under our own brand of Balance Active, but also under customer brand names. It contains a state of the art fully automated filling line that can produce 270 long neck tubes per minute.

We have over 35 years of experience in developing consumer healthcare products (registered as Medical Devices or Cosmetics), and a strong technical team in place with regulatory expertise. This in-house ability to develop and manufacture allows us to be agile in responding to market demand.

Our development and manufacturing capability is a key revenue driver for the Group. With our strong growth to date and strategic ambition, we have invested significantly over the last couple of years to increase the manufacturing capacity.
