Haliborange dates back to the 1930s when it was marketed as the ‘nicest way of taking halibut liver oil,’ At that time children were given fish oil supplements to provide vitamins A, C and D. Haliborange prided itself in the fresh juicy orange flavour and the fact that the syrup had no fishy taste.
Fish oil supplements providing vitamins A, C and D under the Welfare Food Scheme were introduced in the early 1940s. In fact, fish oil liquid was distributed free to pregnant and nursing mothers and children up to five years old through the Ministry of Welfare’s Food programme.
Haliborange produced the first compressed tablet containing vitamins A,C and D. This was one of the first flavoured chewable tablets that made it easier for children to take their daily vitamin pill.
1970s & 1980s
Over the years Haliborange developed a range of fruit flavoured, chewable vitamins. These expanded to include vitamin C, calcium and iron, products suitable for teens and multivitamin syrups suitable for babies and toddlers.
The supplement market for Omega 3 had a meteoric rise following scientific evidence suggesting the link between children’s brain development and Omega 3. It allowed Haliborange to return to its roots and once again provide fish oil formulas for children through its Omega 3 kids range.
Haliborange launched a range of Mr.Men and Little Miss Softies for kids aged 3-7 years. With a cast of over 90 characters, the Mr. Men and Little Misses have brought fun and laughter to generations of families. Currently, one Mr.Men and Little Miss book is sold every 2.5 seconds worldwide, and lifetime sales total 250 million books.
After helping kids shine for nearly 90 years, Haliborange thought it was about time it showed
adults some love too. It created a range of tasty, chewable gummies to help with all that life
throws our way with products such as multivitamins for everyday health to vitamins that support your gut, keep your hair, skin and nails healthy and help you find some calm during a hectic day!
