Holland & Barrett (H&B), the health food chain, has had an increase in sales by 10.4% in the UK and by 7% worldwide during the 12 months ending last September. The best-selling products were in the range of coconut products, including coconut flour, jam and sugar. The other product that was top selling was snail gel cream, which has anti-aging and anti-oxidant benefits. Manuka honey, popular for its anti-bacterial and medicinal uses, was also a popular product. According to H&B, ancient grains also made a comeback, with amaranth, teff and freekeh becoming the “new quinoa”. The Nuneaton-based company posted a 12.2% rise in earnings to the tune of £146 million for the past financial year.
