When it comes to natural health products, a woman-founded Burnaby company is tops as far as business growth.
withinUs, a marine collagen brand, has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in Canada by both the Canadian Business and Maclean’s Magazine Growth List for 2020, and The Globe and Mail Top Growing Companies in Canada for 2020.
Founded in 2013, withinUs placed 40th on the annual list of 500 businesses, but came first in the natural health category.
“We are humbled to be recognized as one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies despite the challenging times that 2020 has presented,” said Burnaby-based withinUs CEO, Tami Nasu.
“Shopping local and investing in the local economy is important right now, the effect it will have on the economy after this pandemic will be paramount for all Canadians.”
The Burnaby company sells collagen supplements, including TruMarine Collagen, a marine collagen peptide, and antioxidant-rich formulations including the popular Matcha Misto, and instant matcha latte formulated with three ingredients, and Golden Glow, a turmeric blend.
Carried at more than 1,500 retail locations across Canada, TruMarine Collagen is an odourless, tasteless powder that can be added to food or beverage, and aims to help promote and maintain healthy skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones.
The company says its marine collagen also helps boost your immune system as it contains the amino acid lysine.
