Overview

anihana is a New Zealand FMCG business that manufacturers natural personal care products. Its mission is to provide consumers with affordable natural personal care products, without leaving a lasting impact on the environment.

anihana was launched by Sophie Cooper in 2018 with a vibrant, fun and playful approach to natural and sustainable beauty products. With a strategy focused on producing high-quality natural products at affordable prices, anihana is strongly positioned to achieve significant growth from the strong global trend towards natural personal care products.

Since raising seed capital at the end of 2020, the company has undergone a major rebrand, moved premises, commissioned additional manufacturing plant and equipment, and entered into distribution agreements with a number of domestic and international retailers and distributors. The new brand and packaging has been well received in the market by retailers.

anihana is now raising additional capital of up to $1.5m to support its growth strategy, which is focused on maximising the existing and new distribution opportunities. More than $1.1m has been committed from a number of existing shareholders, with the balance available to new wholesale investors with a minimum investment size of $50k.
