Organisation Category: Retail Trade
Our story began in 1988 as a small family business in remote Golden Bay, driven out of genuine desire to help people live naturally healthy lives by making natural health more accessible to everyday Kiwis. Over 30 years later our amazing team are dedicated to making a lasting, positive impact on the wellbeing of people and the planet. With a focus on quality, integrity and sustainable business practices, HealthPost is recognised as an innovator in the wellness industry, and New Zealand’s leading online natural products retailer.
From our operational hub in Golden Bay, we distribute an extensive, curated collection of the best in natural health, clean beauty, super nutrition and eco-living brands. We also market a quality range of natural health products under our own brand, BioBalance.
With 30 years under our belt, we feel like we’re still just getting started. Our mission is to make better choices easier by delivering a compelling ‘better-market’ of products that are truly good for consumers and good for the planet, lovingly selected by our team of experts. In keeping with our own values, we intend to continually improve our environmental and social impact via sustainable business practices.

CLEAN ENERGY-ENERGY EFFICIENCY:
Solar Powered - with over 70 photovoltaic panels on the roof of our warehouse in Collingwood, we’re generating a proportion of our own power.
Shop by your Sustainability Values - we tell you more about the products you're shopping for, so you can make an informed choice that's aligned to your personal values. You can shop by sustainable and ethical values like fair trade, carbon neutral and palm oil free to name a few.
Our Better Choice Promise - our strict Good Ingredients and Ethical Integrity standards means no environmental pollutants, no harmful chemicals, no animal testing, and definitely no greenwashing. Just genuinely better products for you and the planet. Promise.
We have a curated range of super nutrition products, as part of our range, which can be filtered by your personal values, like organic, GMO free, sugar free, B Corp, New Zealand made, sustainable omega-3 and much more.
SMART PROCUREMENT-SUPPLY CHAINS:
Eco-Friendly Packaging - we use 100% recyclable and sustainable cardboard boxes and jiffy bags when we ship your order. We steer clear of compostable courier bags that are largely made of PBAT (petroleum-based).
Carbon Offset - as well as offsetting our carbon footprint through gold standard carbon credits, we’re developing our own carbon forest on 25 hectares of regenerating native bush at the start of the Bainham Valley in Golden Bay.
Tree Planting - every year our committed team down tools for the day to do their own to give back to nature. Over the last 10 years we've collectively planted over 10,000 native trees around our local Golden Bay.
Our Better Choices Promise screens out many chemicals that are harmful to humans and the environment. We’ve had major natural health and skincare brands reformulate based on our Red List, to remove ingredients that we’ve identified could be harmful for humans or the environment.
Giving Back - we are based in Golden Bay and our location is a huge part of who we are. With Farewell Spit in our backyard, we feel a responsibility to protect this slice of paradise. That’s why we created the HealthPost Nature Trust, to enhance the biodiversity in the area and allow threatened species to flourish.
Since 2009 we have also donated over $1 million dollars to a number of worthy causes including the Yellow-Eyed Penguin Trust and WWF China.Awards and Certifications: B Corp
