Vision Consumer Health (previously Vision Healthcare) is an ambitious consumer healthcare company with a large portfolio of self-care brands and OTC products in several European countries. Vision strongly focuses on an omnichannel approach through which its brands are marketed, with a specific focus on emerging digitalized and direct-to-consumer channels. Brands connect with the consumer through channels such as retail, direct e-commerce, marketplaces (Amazon, Bol.com,…), social media and influencers, mail order & catalogues and teleshopping. This enables Vision to deliver both personalized and convenient customer experiences.
Vision is operating as a consolidator in the European landscape, whilst allowing group brands to benefit from a shared platform allowing sustainable organic expansion. The company is actively pursuing a buy-and-build strategy, anchored in a deep understanding of today’s macro-economic trends such as shifting channel dynamics & digital brand building, the increasing consumer self-medication and natural/organic products. The M&A strategy is designed to complement the current Vision Consumer Health platform, of which the various components reinforce one another, with the capability of effectively supporting and enlarging any existing company or stand-alone brand.
In 2020, a 50% stake of Vision Consumer Health was acquired by Avista Capital Partners to further support the company's growth plans
