The much-loved brand Horlicks is consolidating its long-standing history of providing nourishment to the nation with the launch of Horlicks Healthy; a range of four specifically-formulated wellness boosting shakes all with a blend of carefully selected vitamins, minerals and functional ingredients, alongside 15-20g protein per serving.
Horlicks, which has supported explorers, nourished soldiers and fortified athletes since 1873, has developed the new range to give a little boost and helping hand. Whether it’s for a more soothing sleep, to support immune function, or to ease aches and pains, Horlicks Healthy helps you to feel more refreshed and ready to enjoy every moment.
Michelle Younger, Head of Marketing at Aimia Foods explains: “Horlicks has been supporting health and wellbeing for almost 150 years, and we are now excited to build upon this heritage with Horlicks Healthy to support a total wellness journey, making nourishment enjoyable.
“We have an ageing population, largely wanting to stay active and enjoy their life but lacking the right products for them – we all want to be at our best, and as we get older this is no longer a ‘nice to have’, it’s a ‘must’ for a fulfilling life. With Horlicks Healthy we want to make it easier and tastier to look after your wellbeing, all with our signature creamy, malty and delicious flavour that has been a firm family favourite for many years gone by.
“The insight behind Horlicks Healthy shows that consumers are staying more active as they age and have an awareness of how protein can assist this. There is interest amongst these consumers but current products on the market are focused on other needs and life stages Horlicks Healthy is all about helping you feel good.
“We all know protein is great for gym workouts and muscle gains but as we age protein is just as important – it’s key to preventing muscle loss, an issue 70% of our consumers are of aware*.
“We’re here to make nourishment easy with our new nourishing shakes. Our latest Horlicks Healthy range has been developed to meet the demand for those consumers who are off-put by current protein-based products – making nourishment enjoyable, easy and delivering the delicious malty flavour Horlicks is known and loved for. Healthy Sleep, Healthy Body, Healthy Gut and Healthy Mind is blended with health-boosting vitamins and packed with protein. Helping to support your total wellness journey and become a healthier, stronger you.”
Each product in the range will launch as a 400g pouch available from late June RRP £14.99.
