Sales, Marketing and Public Relations
Grünbiotics is an innovative nutritional science company in the Medical Foods space. Operating in a unique landscape, Grünbiotics’ target markets are simultaneously the health care professional and the product consumer.
Apart from quality products and life changing benefits, our success is driven by a successful marketing and PR program. We take advantage of traditional and new media to inform and educate healthcare professionals and consumers alike. We have an existing positive brand presence in markets around the globe.
Medical Foods’ Target Markets
Healthcare Professionals and Consumers
Sales, marketing and public relations across the Medical Foods space is somewhat distinctive in that promotion of the products is primarily to and via health care professionals.
As a Medical Food, Grünbiotics’ products can only be sold from or by a medical practitioner or dietitian, a medical practice, pharmacy or certain other institutions, or appropriate distributor. In this context, the health care professional carries out a fundamental role.
Medical Foods are distinctive from nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical products in that they are intended for people with a serious disorder or medical condition whose specialised nutritional requirements cannot be met by normal foods. Nutritional supplements and functional foods, on the other hand, are designed for healthy people, while pharmaceuticals are manufactured drugs and medicines for the treatment of disease.
It is important to note that our marketing and PR programs are required to be customised according to country differences, with our products being known as “Food for Special Medical Purpose” by the Codex Alimentarius Commission – FAO-WHO/UN and in China, the European Union, Australia and New Zealand; “Food for Specified Heath Uses” in Japan; “Medical Foods” in the US, and “Foods for Special Dietary Uses” in Canada.
Engaging Health Care Professionals
The Increasing Importance of Digital
Grünbiotics has experience in engaging health care professionals, both offline and online.
As health care professionals increasingly move to digital channels, marketing and PR activities increasingly need to shift. The way health care professionals consume content is changing. More and more, health care professionals are going online to source medical information and participate in online communities, forums and social media in order to share information, content, networking and keep up to date with the latest treatments, research and studies.
As the cost of traditional media grows and time constraints increase, digital channels increasingly outperform offline channels. Digital engages healthcare professionals at a time that is convenient, providing personalised and hyper-targeted content that is both valuable and needs-based.
In turn, digital provides analytics that are used to inform marketing and PR activities, producing long-term engagement and relationships with health care professionals. Our engagement activities assist professionals make informed decisions regarding our products – simultaneously benefiting both the professional and consumer.
Educating Our Consumers
Differentiated and Direct
Effective consumer education of our Medical Food products is also a key aspect of our success. Because we sell to numerous markets around the world, we undertake differentiated education strategies that are tailored to each country. Our digital marketing program provides consumer education, social media and brand awareness. We also undertake traditional education and awareness building activities in offline channels, including magazines and newspapers.
Our Current Marketing & PR Program
Our expansion into new markets, further development of existing markets, and new product development means that we will increase our education and awareness building efforts over the coming years. In this respect, our partners also stand to gain.

These efforts present a consistent brand experience and tap into our quality medical nutrition products to build trust and relationships with health care professionals and consumers alike.
