Major UK diet company arrives in Spain

One of the UK’s most successful weight loss programmes – Cambridge Weight Plan (CWP) – has arrived in Spain, under the Cambridge 800 brand.

Cambridge Nutritional Foods SL, based in Mijas, offers four flexible weight loss programmes ranging from 800kcal – 1500kcal per day as well as a long-term weight management programme.

Cambridge programmes have been available in more than 20 countries around the world since 1984. In Spain, through the Cambridge 800 brand, a range of low calorie diet products such as soups, shakes and bars will be available. Customers can only purchase these products from accredited independent Cambridge Consultants, who also offer one-to-one advice, support and encouragement.

To celebrate the arrival of Cambridge in Spain, the company is hosting a reception at the Gran Melia Don Pepe Hotel in Marbella on 31 January 2012. In attendance will be the Director of UK Trade and Investment for Andalucia Joe Cooper and representatives of the company’s UK parent Company.

The company’s manager in Spain, Sarah Hawes, said: “Cambridge has been operating for over 27 years around the world, so we are very excited about our arrival in Spain. We have a long history of weight loss success based on our unique model of one-to-one support and this is exactly what we will be using in Spain. We already have a number of trained Consultants working with customers and we are hoping that as more people discover Cambridge, they too will be interested in working with us.”

According to data released from the EU in December 2011, the levels of obesity in Spain have doubled since 1987 with now more than 15% of both men and woman classed as obese. Sarah said: “Rising levels of overweight and obesity have created a ticking time bomb, affecting the quality of people’s lives and increasing the burden on public health services to the detriment of all. Since Cambridge began in 1984, more than 30 million people have successfully used our products all around the world. We will initially be operating along the Costa del Sol but plan to expand into other parts of the country, Costa Blanca being a key location, as word spreads about how effective Cambridge 800 is at helping people to lose weight and to keep it off long term.”
