Nelson, Lancashire, supplement firm expands into Sierra Leone, its 66th export country

FSB member and Nelson based health supplement manufacturer, Blackburn Distribution, has confirmed that it has added the West African nation of Sierra Leone to its ever-growing list of export countries. The country is the latest in a catalogue of 66 countries that the firm exports products to.
Founded in 2004, Blackburn Distribution is a leading supplier and partner to the supplement, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. The company manufactures tailor made formulas and specific quantities, with the highest quality ingredients, for both businesses and consumers at competitive prices.
“Ben Blackburn, Founder and CEO, Blackburn Distribution said: “We’re delighted to be adding Sierra Leone to the list of countries we export to. The large number and variety of places our products are distributed to, highlights the growth and success of the business as well as the demand for our products.
“Blackburn Distribution began as a result of recognising there was a customer requirement for the small-scale segmentation of both quantity and ingredients of supplements. From humble beginnings, we now stock over 110 products in 18 different sizes and our growth will see us opening a new facility in Vision Park, Burnley in the near future.”
Home to over 7,000,000 people, agriculture and mining are Sierra Leone’s largest industries, with the United Kingdom accounting for 19% of all imported goods into the Republic.
