This trial follows Holland & Barrett’s recent launch of 300 new food own brand lines in September this year. The market leading range of healthy snacks and hundreds of food cupboard items marked the biggest transformation of its food category to date. The range also saw Holland & Barrett introduce plant points to its food labelling – the first major high street retailer to do so.

Holland & Barrett’s Coffee with Benefits trial will launch on Wednesday 8 November at Holland & Barrett, Birmingham High Street (50-54 High St, Birmingham B4 7SY).
