NBTY can trace its long history as far back as 1870 with the founding of our Holland & Barrett stores in England. Over 145 years later, the company continues to enrich the lives of consumers around the world and proudly stands as the leader in health and wellness by introducing innovative products and solutions to the marketplace. A global company committed to consistently producing the highest-quality products, we offer a wide range of brands that people love and trust across the entire value spectrum. We have a significant presence in virtually every major vitamin, mineral, herb, sports, active nutrition and supplement product category and in multiple key distribution channels. Our brands include Holland & Barrett®, Nature’s Bounty®, Sundown Naturals®, Osteo Bi-Flex®, Solgar®, MET-Rx®, Pure Protein®, Body Fortress®, Balance Bar®, Puritan’s Pride® and many others.

In addition to our Long Island corporate headquarters, NBTY has manufacturing, packaging, warehouse, distribution and administration facilities throughout the United States and Canada. The company also maintains overseas offices in the United Kingdom, China, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and New Zealand. In 2010, The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s leading private investment firms, acquired the company. In September 2014, Steve Cahillane was named President and CEO. Under his leadership, the company continues to fulfill its commitment to supporting wellness by creating products that consumers want and making them easily available anywhere they shop.
