Further growth for supplement company
Health supplement company SDC Nutrition, a specialist in sports nutrition and health and wellness supplements, are to expand into Brazil. SDC Nutrition said it is building on an existing relationship with former CEO of GNC Brazil, Juan Alonso, to market and distribute its sports nutrition brands in Latin America. SDC Brazil is based in Rio de Janeiro and Juan Alonso is the Managing Director.
Alonso has over 24 years in retail and management experiences as Director of Operation with Walmart, Inc (Mexico, Brazil & Argentina), CEO Casa Saba Brazil, CEO of Drogasmil and Farmalife drug stores chain in Brazil and CEO at GNC Live Well Brazil. He will lead a professional team dedicated to the growth of SDC Nutrition in Brazil.
Throughout 2015, SDC Nutrition has gained significant market presence in Latin American pharmacies and retailers and according to SDC’s CEO, phase two of their plan is now underway.
CEO, Sean Marszalek, says:
"Latin America, and specifically Brazil, represents one of the biggest opportunities for SDC Nutrition, outside of the U.S. With the sports nutrition market expected to grow at almost 20% per year in Brazil through 2020 we didn't simply want to be another U.S. company exporting products to Brazil. Instead, we feel we can capitalize on the opportunities, and increase shareholder value, by opening offices overseas and putting people on the ground to grow our brands"
