The charitable activity of Cytoplan in 2023

Charity sits right at the heart of Cytoplan. Since conception in 1990, the philosophy of the company has been built on the foundations of helping others and improving people’s health and wellbeing.

Since 2006 our company has been owned by a charitable foundation. From 2006 to November 2023, we were owned by The AIM Foundation (AIM), with a share of our profits given to AIM in order to fund its Nutrition for Health & Wellbeing charitable donations.
