Ltd – a self-described ‘global holistic healthcare company dedicated to bettering the health of people worldwide’- announced the purchase, confirming it will acquire 100 per cent of the brand, which was founded in 2008. I do like this brand, I hope that their product will be even tastier and healthier.
