Our team has invested years of specialized scientific research into health and nutrition with the aim of helping people healthier, happier lives. Our supplements are formulated by a team of doctors, nutritionists and health care experts, delivering industry-best products. We have offices in Canada and the US.
Q 2. Kindly give us a brief description about yourself (it should include your brief educational or entrepreneurial background and list some of your major achievements).
Ans: Well I actually started my career in accounting after graduating from university. I worked in that field for a few years before realizing it wasn’t really for me and decided to venture into something more entrepreneurial but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do. I gained experience in tutoring university students, selling real estate, closing over the phone and all that has led to starting nutarium! I met my business partner through a business course and with a similar vision and values, we collaborated on working together in the online space.
Q 3. What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Ans: After meeting my business partner, we initially started selling products on an e-commerce platform and learnt a lot! It was like a rollercoaster ride! Then our attention started expanding into the health and wellness space once I had my baby and wanted natural ways to improve my health and immune system especially in the backdrop of a worldwide pandemic. There was so much uncertainty in 2020 but I wanted to be certain of my health and the health of my newborn so that began the journey into researching what was on the market.
We gathered a team of doctors, nutritionists and health care experts to ensure our products are natural, organic and effective, so much so, we decided to have a one year guarantee on any of our products!
