Who is Kevin Ring?

In the late 1960s, our founder Kevin Ring set off on a Quest to explore the world in search of nutrient-rich ingredients. Upon his return, he opened the first Swisse store in Melbourne, Australia. He believed that ingredients from nature have the power to help us make the most of life every day. Kevin's desire to help billions of people around the world become healthier and happier is still at the very heart of Swisse’s DNA. We have spent years visiting the furthest corners of the globe to source premium ingredients and develop innovative concepts, resulting in over 200 products that now make up the Swisse range. We are thrilled to share our expertise and offerings with you, to assist you in your own journey towards health and happiness.
