Spearheading maternity wellness as a retail category, Premama has pioneered industry awareness and consumer demand with products for the entire maternity journey.
"Premama has seized the opportunity to develop a targeted range of prenatal vitamin, fertility and lactation supplements with a pill-free delivery mechanism, and make them accessible across mainstream retail channels. Our approach is game-changing for today's generation of expecting and new moms," said Dan Aziz, Founder and President, Premama.
Premama is cornering the market at an ideal time where wellness products have become mainstream and the "bump" industry is exploding. According to New Hope Network, "Maternity Wellness sales growth is currently outpacing the supplement market as a whole," growing at 7.2% over the last year. In addition to specialty stores and nutritional chains like The Vitamin Shoppe and GNC, Premama has brought its complete maternity wellness concept to pharmacies, natural grocers, and other retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, Meijer, and Sprouts.
Premama first entered the marketplace in 2012 with its Premama Essentials and Premama Essentials + DHA prenatal vitamin drink mixes, and expanded with Premama Fertility reproductive powdered drink supplement and Premama Lactation support powdered drink supplement in 2015. Adding to the growth momentum is the recent launch of Premama Digestive Aid, the brand's first chewable solution.
Further validating brand appeal, Premama has appeared in Pregnancy & Newborn, BevNET, Fit Pregnancy and other media, and has garnered numerous industry recognitions from babyMaternity Magazine and SupplySide (2015), among others.
