Anaheim, California, USA, March 7, 2019—Richmond-based nutritional gummy manufacturer Herbaland Naturals is making a splash in the Chinese markets, as they partner with Chinese e-commerce giant Tmall Global, to bring healthy nutritional gummies to Chinese consumers. Tmall Global is China’s largest B2C marketplace for both Chinese and international brands and retailers, providing a premium shopping experience for China’s consumers. Launched in 2014, Tmall Global is Alibaba’s dedicated channel for cross-border e-commerce. The two companies held a joint media event today at Natural Health Products Expo West in Anaheim, California to announce Herbaland’s newest product --Vegan Collagen Booster Gummies -- making it’s Chinese debut exclusively on the Tmall Global platform.
The partnership is spurred, in part, by growth in the global gummy market, particularly that in the Asia-Pacific market. A 2017 study from Albany, NY based firm Transparency Market research, projected that the Asia-Pacific gummy vitamin market will grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8 percent between 2017 and 2025.
“We look forward to bringing our expertise in nutritional gummies and Canadian quality to Chinese consumers,” explains Musharaf Syed, co-founder and CEO of Herbaland. When asked about Herbaland’s plans to expand their market share, Musharaf Syed, co-founder and CEO of Herbaland, stands confidently by his company’s products -- and its relationship with Tmall Global. “We believe that the quality and nutrition of our products speaks for itself. That, along with Tmall’s reputation for bringing fantastic products to the market in China, has our team looking forward to growth in this market.”
TMALL EXCLUSIVE LAUNCH
Herbaland's Vegan Collagen Booster Gummies be sold exclusively on Tmall Global. This new product was formulated to help naturally boost the body's collagen formation, with only one serving needed per day.
Collagen, an essential protein, has gained popularity in recent years due to its ability to help maintain healthy skin and prevent ageing. However, in traditional supplements, collagen is primarily sourced from bovine and fish and is incompatible with vegan and vegetarian diets. Instead of introducing foreign collagen, Herbaland's Collagen Booster Gummies work by using healthy, plant-based ingredients to promote the body's natural collagen production.
“Our Research and Development team has worked hard to combine two global trends -- collagen supplementation and the growth of plant-based diets -- into one convenient, innovative and, most importantly, delicious, new product,” explains Syed.
Each gummy contains 150mg of Lysine - an amino acid needed for the body's synthesis of proteins -- like collagen. Lysine, along with specially added Vitamin C, also promote maintenance of good health and enhances immunity.
Founded in 2009, Herbaland Naturals specializes in the manufacture of nutritional gummies, with more than 200 Natural Health Product certifications issued by the Canadian Department of Health. In 2018, the publication Canadian Business ranked Herbaland among the top 500 fastest growing companies in the country, coming in at number 57. In both 2017 and 2018, Herbaland was shortlisted for the BC Export Award and won the Gold Prize for Consumers' Most Popular New Health Products.
“We have grown quickly because our brand is built on a foundation of quality,” explains Musharaf Syed, co-founder, and CEO of Herbaland Naturals. “Our team follows the highest quality standards in the world while using the most advanced eco-forming technology available to produce our products.” Herbaland products are GMP-compliant, with clean ingredients, guaranteed content, and hygienic safety. From the sourcing of raw materials to the finished product storage, Herbaland has a complete set of scientific and rigorous material traceability systems to ensure the quality of each product.
Herbaland's mission is to make nutrition accessible for all by producing fun and functional gummies.

Herbaland also hopes to bring fun and functional nutrient intake to every corner of the world: the full range of Herbaland products has been sold in more than 30 countries and regions around the world.
