We think these guys are doing something special and we love their comprehensive wellbeing product range. A number of Unleashed staffers are regular HealthPost customers! We’re especially impressed with HealthPost’s humanitarian, animal and environmental charities through their Better World Donation Programme. A dollar from every order is donated to a selected charity, rotated on a monthly basis. Over half a million has been raised so far for charity, including Red Cross, Oxfam and Fred Hollows. Great stuff!

What does your business do? 

HealthPost is one of New Zealand’s favourite online natural health and beauty suppliers.

Their newly launched Herbal Detox Program has proven extremely popular with three distinct herbal detox blends in one package. It’s crafted to support deep cleansing of toxins and elimination of pathogens. All herbs in their unique NZ-made program are organic or wild crafted, and include powerful New Zealand native herbs. All are tested and certified for quality. BioBalance takes care to source only the best herbs available for their products. Some are handpicked in native bush, dried and milled by capable and loving people.

Why do you think your customers like this wellbeing product range so much?

Our customers enjoy the BioBalance products due to their high quality, well-priced and sustainable practises. Each ingredient is carefully selected and products are manufactured to the highest standards.

Can you give us a brief history of your business and the growth it has experienced so far?

HealthPost was established in 1988 as a mail order company. Over the years we became very popular in the New Zealand market. In 2002 HealthPost took its wealth of natural health experience onto the web, and the business moved to another level. Sales grew and offshore markets developed. Then, due to growing demand, HealthPost.com.au was established. HealthPost, still a family owned and operated wellbeing business, has seen big changes and growth over the years, becoming New Zealand’s favourite online natural health and beauty store and now supplies Australia, Asia and the rest of the world.

How is Unleashed helping your business grow?

Unleashed provided HealthPost Australia with an easy solution to our inventory needs. It was essential we had a system that integrated well with both our eCommerce platform Magento, our accounting software Xero, and now our POS software Vend. Unleashed has achieved this and continues to improve, offering a user-friendly and stable software for our needs.

Is there something your business in particularly proud of?

HealthPost is dedicated to making natural health as accessible as possible to anyone anywhere in the world. We deliver swiftly and keep prices low. Our great customer service and ever-expanding online resource of wellbeing blogs, recipes and product reviews provides our customers with the information and the inspiration they need to achieve excellent health. We are dedicated to the continued availability of safe and natural solutions in NZ and beyond. We take pleasure in supporting other local businesses with excellent ethical credentials. We want to help New Zealand’s natural health and skincare products enjoy the international success that they deserve.

We are also committed to environmental, cultural and ethical sustainability. Since 2009 we have offset the carbon on our parcel deliveries and operations and planted thousands of trees in our local region. We’ve also installed 72 photovoltaic panels on the roof of our premises.

Are there any particular not-for-profit cause that you, or your business is passionate about?

We believe that the wellness of the individual is always connected to the health of the broader community and the natural environment. As such we’ve given $534,598 and counting to humanitarian, animal and environmental charities through our Better World Donation Programme, based on our customers’ preferences. $1 from every order is donated to a selected charity, rotated on a monthly basis. All donations are made from HealthPost’s operating revenue with well over $500,000 now donated to many causes including Red Cross, Oxfam, Fred Hollows and many more. Customers simply select their preferred charity when placing their order at checkout.
