Company OverviewNew Image Group is a leading New Zealand-based natural health product and nutritionals provider that’s ranked in the world’s top 80 direct-selling businesses and also has a traditional distribution channel. It is a global leader in the manufacturing and marketing of nutritional products.
Using innovative technologies and ingredients backed by science, we aim to enhance the health and wellbeing of people throughout the world.
HistoryIn 1984, after the loss of his father, mother and brother to cancer, respected New Zealander and entrepreneur Graeme Clegg founded New Image. He pioneered dairy-based health products and New Image grew to leverage the power of bovine colostrum and other natural ingredients. Graeme’s mission remains – to bring health and wellbeing to people around the world.
Over the past 31 years New Image has changed greatly. The purchase of a number of processing facilities in the Auckland region of New Zealand has enabled us to expand our product range from ten to more than 100. A series of business partnerships and acquisitions has seen New Image progress to the forefront of innovation and technology in the nutritional products sector.

We also operate satellite offices in Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan and Thailand. A range of customised products is exported to customers in China, Korea, South America and the Middle East.
