At Huel, the quality of what we supply is important and we are continually reviewing and developing our products. The same applies to the nutritional information we provide on our website, labels and printed literature. Huel products have been developed by a strong team who work directly for Huel, and we have also worked with other organisations and individuals to ensure we’re providing the best quality products and information.
As we are continually striving to be better than we are already, we’ve enrolled the services of other nutrition and product development experts. This enables the team to have an even broader knowledge base on hand to assist in reviewing our current products, checking our new developments and improving the nutrition information we provide to our customers. We’ve therefore created a Huel Advisory Panel. You can read about the members of the panel on our About Us page (scroll to near the bottom). As our product range expands across the world, we will continue to invite new experts to the team.
