London & Hong Kong — Sep. 28, 2022 – Swanson Health Products, Inc. (Swanson Health), a leading vitamins and supplements brand, has partnered with Pattern—the category leader for global ecommerce acceleration—to grow its online business in China.
Swanson Health has offered its leading natural health products to Chinese consumers for over a decade and has now selected Pattern as its master distributor in China to manage the brand’s online sales channels and drive its growth in the world’s largest ecommerce market.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Pattern,” said Swanson Health Chief Financial Officer Colin Markey. “This change will allow us to have a more streamlined approach globally, especially with third party online platforms, giving us the education and knowledge needed to continue to promote and grow our brand successfully in China.”
The partnership is set to reinforce Swanson Health’s selling proposition in the Chinese market. Pattern’s buy-stock model will expand Swanson Health’s product listings in the market, providing Chinese shoppers with a wider selection of the brand’s leading natural health products. With its local market insights and extensive data expertise, Pattern will help the brand adopt localised and targeted marketing strategies, such as livestreaming and influencer marketing, to provide a shopping experience that meets Chinese customers where they are.
