Food Pharmacy is one of the most well known health brands in Sweden and was founded in 2014 by Lina Nertby Aurell and Mia Clase. The mission of Food Pharmacy is to improve public health. Lina and Mia empower and inspire people to eat healthier, through their three bestselling books, their highly appreciated platform foodpharmacyco.com (where international experts share their knowledge on food and health, and chefs share delicious recipes), their podcast ”The Food Pharmacy Show” and their premium quality supplements ”Nutrient Hunter by Food Pharmacy”
Lina is a political scientist and worked as Deputy Vice President at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce. During these years she was based in Stockholm and responsible for East Africa, and some regions in Asia and Latin America. Mia is a copywriter and worked as a creative director at some of the largest advertising agencies in Stockholm. She also spent a few months working in New York.
A few years ago Lina And Mia became aware of the statistics that clearly showed that not only were the number of cases of lifestyle related diseases growing exponentially, but also that an increasing number of younger people were affected by lifestyle retaliated diseases. And how could it even be possible that bad eating habits was the biggest risk of getting ill or dying too early today, and furthermore that these so-called bad eating habits were to a certain extent the ”new normal” when it came to eating habits? They learnt that health care today almost entirely focuses on treating sick people even if research shows that the majority of the diseases affecting us today could be easily prevented. It became so evident that many times even small changes can do miracles to our health.
They strongly felt an urge to share and reach out to ordinary people with this life saving knowledge. So Food Pharmacy was born to empower the people and improve public health.
