The last year has seen marked expansion of the retail support team at Lintbells. Starting with just one person available to visit stores, the company now employs four, dedicated to the pet and equine trade channel and putting feet on the ground from Newcastle to Plymouth.
The move is in marked contrast to many companies who have moved to only offering remote support. Lintbells Retail Channel Lead, UK & Ireland Sue Lewis says it’s all part of getting to know customers and working in partnership, “We value that one to one relationship we have with our customers. In many cases we’ve found we can be more constructive once we have got to know a retailer’s premises, their competitive environment and the type of customers they attract. It’s helped us identify new opportunities in store and to be more responsive to meeting retailers’ needs.”
Joe Goode, Managing Director of Superpet says the support they have received from Lintbells is second to none, “We have always found that Lintbells have a great range of natural products. We see many YuMOVE repeat sales from customers and they are so pleased seeing great improvements with their loved ones mobility. This really gives my staff confidence and satisfaction selling the Lintbells range of products.”
The Lintbells retail team is comprised of Terri Ann, Retail Channel Lead, who covers the South East and Retail Business Development Executives, Emma, who is based in the South West, Helen, who looks after the North East and Zoe, who will be working with retailers in the North West.

For Lintbells, every product starts with a pet in need. Based in Weston in Hertfordshire, Lintbells researches, formulates and sells high quality, innovative natural supplements that aim to improve the lives of dogs, cats and horses. It’s a commitment the company takes very seriously and has resulted in products that support skin and coat condition, digestive health and joint care.
Established in 2006 by John Howie and John Davies, Lintbells has a strong focus on scientific validation of its products, working with experts such as the Royal Veterinary College and New Zealand’s Marlborough Research Centre. But it doesn’t stop with the science because helping pets is at the core of the business.
At all levels of the Lintbells’ organisation there’s a realisation that collectively, everyone has a responsibility to help keep pets healthy and happy by providing effective, high quality, pet supplements at affordable prices.
And it seems those efforts are increasingly appreciated by pets and their people. By the end of 2016, 200 million YuMOVE tablets had been sold to pet owners in more than 15 countries.
