Major UK diet company arrives in Spain hosts a reception at the Gran Melia Don Pepe Hotel Marbella

In attendance at the reception for the Cambridge 800 in Spain, were Chrissy Crawford , Wendy Van der Veen and friends from the Black and White Association

On Tuesday evening the 31st January 2012, I attended the reception at the beautiful Gran Melia Don Pepe Hotel Marbella, to see the launch of  Cambridge Nutritional Foods SL,  a major UK diet company, into Spain. It was a most enjoyable experience and well worth the effort in going to this event, as we were made most welcome by our friendly hosts, who lavished us with first class tapas and wine and were superbly entertained  by the excellent singing of the tenor voices of Tres Divos.

Along with the entertainment we were also given a slick, professional presentation of their diet products and the reasons why this highly successful British company, based in Corby,  had decided to market their products in Spain.

The evening attracted a large gathering of nearly 300 invited guests, including members of the media. For me the event was was made even more enjoyable as I met many interesting professional people, who had attended  and I enjoyed making contact with some of my friends such as businesswoman Wendy Van der Veen, event organizer and TV Presenter Karina Geldner;  the ever popular artist Mugge Fischer,  and members of I Talk Fm Radio team as well as some new contacts.

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.”
